The Colour Collaborative :: January / Woolly

Frozen toes wrapped up in cosy socks, warming them by the fire.

For some it's hands, others their nose for me it's my feet.  If my feet are cold then my whole body feels it, chilling me down to the bone.  One thing I cannot bear is cold feet - I would rather give up cake then let my feet get cold...the words of my dear old gran stuck in my head 'you'll get chilblains!'.  Funny the things you remember and carry through life...when the ones we once loved are long gone.

When the theme 'Woolly' was suggested for January all kinds of thought process went through my head. 

From overflowing baskets filled with yarn, to a neat stack of perfectly folded blankets.  And I nearly 'nearly' hauled out my complete woolly jumper collection (I'm a little obsessed with jumpers at the moment) trying to find that perfect pose.

The only thing that kept coming back to me was warm, woolly socks....and propping them up by the fire.

What is The Colour Collaborative? All creative bloggers make stuff, gather stuff, shape stuff, and share stuff. Mostly they work on their own, but what happens when a group of us work together? Is a creative collaboration greater than the sum of its parts? We think so and we hope you will too. We'll each be offering our own monthly take on a colour related theme, and hoping that in combination our ideas will encourage us, and perhaps you, to think about colour in new ways.
