The Good, The Bad, and The Sqwadgy

For those of you sqwadgy-color fans:

Sqwadgy: [skwa-djee] colors likely to be found in a swamp. Or in the Autumn, all around us now.

As Marcy said, there are no bad colors. Just colors other-people-like-better-than-I-do. Or perhaps, colors more likely to be used by people other than me.

Anyway, you get the picture. And I get the point. For the record, some of the sqwadgy colors have begun to creep their little way into my work too. Turns out they are useful, and sometimes a great complement to the reds/blues/golds I like to use:

And the fate of all of this silk?

SOAR silk 2006

Packets of silk, 29 total, all packed up for SOAR.

The Dye Lots project continues, but we are moving on to yarns this week. More Bright Color Pictures(tm) to follow.

All that silk! Love it all. I could make some seriously beautiful silk fusion pieces from that!

I cannot tell you how amusing it is to me that you, YOU, use my name in the same post where you talk about color. Too funny! Sqwadgy--excellent word.

Hi Sara, you said that this silk is for a class - what class is that? One of the workshops or a retreat class?

You could do a poll on what constitutes a squawdgy color. I vote for olive green.

None of the colors of your dyed silk look icky to me - they all look luscious!

I agree - they all look luscious, but I just love the word squadgy (did I spell it right?)
