It's not easy being Green..sez Kermit, the Frog. Green..hmmmm ? How Green was my Valley? Green, green grass of home? It's Not easy being green? Haven't heard a new song about green for a long time now...wonder why? Probably people don't think about green as a thing to ponder.
I like green. Green is my favorite color. From Ireland to slime..I like green. Frogs rank very high with me but have not, at this point, invaded my quilts. Well....maybe......occasionally. And I do have a larger than average amount of fabric with frogs. Some wear top hats and other wear tutus. I like the polka dotted ones best.
I tend to like EVERYTHING done in polka dots best...LOL, but that's another story. Maybe the green thing comes from being named what I was, which means "dweller of the forest". Or maybe from being born and raised in Wisconsin. I couldn't imagine a world without green, and then I spent 10 days in New Mexico. I loved it. I love the ancientness of it..the old, dry, dustiness of it. Probably lived there in a former life.
But getting back to green, I have more green in my stash than any other color. I tend to buy blues, but rarely use them. Red ranks very high with me, as do autumn colors. Strange as it sounds I think I've only made one green "focus" quilt. Hmmmmm...time to change that I think.
