just about colour

I'm in love with colour and my board, just about colour, on Pinterest is evidence of it.

vinnis colours

Vir hierdie kleurskema het ek 'n foto gekies van LEIF se website af, omdat ek so mal is oor die koel pastelkleure daarin. Die kleure wat ek voorstel vir jou kombers is 'n kombinasie van Vinnis se Bambi en Nikkim. Wanneer ek regtig iets spesiaals wil maak, koop ek Vinnis, omdat dit 100% natuurlike vesels bevat nl 100% katoen en bamboes. Wat ek ookal daarmee gehekel het is koel en terselfdertyd swaar. En dit lyk nogsteeds mooi na 'n paar keer se was! C x

For this color scheme I chose a photo of Leif's Pebble Bud vases. I just love the cool pastel colors in it. The colors that I suggest for your blanket is from a combination of Vinnis's Bambi and Nikkim. When I really want to make something special, I buy Vinnis, because it contains all natural fibers - 100% cotton and bamboo. Whatever I've crocheted with Vinnis has a lovely handle and is extremely comfortable to wear. And it washes beautifully!

the white house

Hi vriendin

Het jy al ooit gewens jy kon in 'n huis bly met 'n wit interieur?

Dis natuurlik totaal en al onprakties as jy kinders en honde (en 'n man) het.

Ek kyk maar net verlangend na fotos op die internet waar als wit is.

Ek sê wit, maar daar's natuurlik baie skakerings ... antieke wit, spookwit, sneeu, magnolia, seeskulp, vanilla, beige en so aan.

Daar's 'n baie mooi versameling van als-wat-wit-is op tumblr (versameling van hoofsaaklik fotos) by la maison blanche.

Met baie dramatiese agtergrond musiek van Edit Piaf wat sing "No, je ne regrette rien!!!"

Is dit dalk 'n waarskuwing dat jy geen berou moet hê wanneer jy in 'n "wit" huis bly nie?

Hi friend

Have you ever wished you could live in a house with a white interior?

Of course it's totally impractical if you have children and dogs (and a husband).

I just look longingly at photos with white interiors.

There are of course many shades  of white ... ancient white, ghost white, snow white, magnolia, seashell, vanilla, beige and  more.

There's a very nice collection of photos on tumblr at la maison blanche.

With very dramatic background music by Edith Piaf singing "No, je ne regrette rien!!!"

Is it perhaps a warning
that you should have no regrets when living in a "white" house?

vinnis colours

For this 10 colour blanket-scheme, I've matched the colours in this photo (100layercake) with Vinnis Colours Nikkim. Nikkim is a soft 100% cotton yarn. The yarn is hand-dyed and will give your blanket a unique marbled effect. It is machine washable. C x

PS. See my 13 colour blanket-scheme for Vinnis Colours Serina here.

vinnis colours

Baie keer as ek mooi fotos op die internet of op Pinterest sien, dink ek: Sjoe, dit sal 'n mooi 'scheme' maak vir 'n kombers. Ek het 13 kleure uit die foto hierbo gehaal (foto via 100 layer cake) en die kleure ge'match' met Vinnis se Serina. Serina is 'n baie luukse 100% bamboes wol wat met die hand gekleur is. Ek koop my Vinnis by Maryna Fouche 082 371 2705 in Monumentpark, maar sy sal verseker vir jou 'n pakkie in die pos gooi as jy ver bly. Cornel x
