reasons i like red

I want to say a really really really big thank you to Rebecca for including me {Red Seed} in her '3 Quick Questions'. Haven't you just so enjoyed reading about all these creatives who make up our wonderful world. I love getting little glimpses into people's lives, and especially about the creative-force in their lives.
Have a read of my answers here. I always find it strange reading things about myself, in that manner - but also really heart-warming. I love that I have rediscovered my crafting roots, and that I am in a nourishing and supportive community, where I'm able to (sort-of, kind-of) make a living out of this. Also, being asked questions like this makes me to think about the way I craft, and why I craft - and that's really an important part of who I am. My creative upbringing - it's in my blood!

More red work over here. I've been watching people start and make their  contribution to Kootoyoo's red quilt project. And I've just noticed that everyone has sent theirs in, and they are all photographed and displayed over here. Wouldn't you love to go and see them all - at the one night only display. If you live in Melbourne, get yourself there - and come back here and report, please.

Whilst browsing the flickr page, I was stopped short by this one. oh my golly gosh. is that not fun.

I also love this one. I mean, look at the zip.

There's so many more fantastic ones over there. Go and do some red looking!


  1. I love red, whenever I find myself in an unfamilar situation I wear red as it gives me more confidence

  2. Great interview! I love red too - both to wear and to use in other ways. I've only recently discovered redwork through the neat little embroidery pattern at Loobylu and I can feel the addiction already! I remember once when I was wearing red someone saying to me that she was envious because she wouldn't be brave enough to wear it - I still feel a bit sad about that because everyone should wear red and feel brave and strong and 'look at me!'. Not that I stride about amazon-like all the time, it's mostly just a great colour, but to think you can't feel that about yourself if you wanted would be awful.


Thank you for your words and thoughts. I do so appreciate each and every visitor to my blog. While I try hard to reply to your comment, it often doesn't quite happen..... know that I'm sending you a thoughtful thanks xxx
