Is It Red or Is It Orange? - Orange You Glad Blog Hop

  Welcome to Creatin' in the Sticks 
and
my day - the final day for the Orange You Glad Blog Hop.

To all that participated or commented -
Thank you so much!
I enjoy hosting blog hop events so much.

My head is swimming with all kinds of ideas
and I can't wait to get to playing with orange!
But first, it's my day to show my
Red and Orange Turtles
and
do a little color play.


When the idea for this hop came along, my first thought was that I needed to use up some of the orange scraps in my ever-growing stash.

Then one day, I remembered a long argument...

You see, my mom had this turtle (she may still have it)
It was a little handcrafted bobblehead turtle that was so cute.
Similar to these...

I made a comment about how cute her little orange turtle was
and
she said, "It's RED!" 

Isn't funny how somethings look orange at one time and then look red at others.
It's all about the environment for some reds and oranges.

These turtles share a couple of fabrics - it's all about what you put the fabrics with.


The English paper pieced pattern for the turtle 
is 
free from Abby Glassenberg - Tilly the Turtle

They are about 6".

I own Abby's Puzzle Ball Animals Book - I have it in my list to make a couple.


Can you spot the same fabrics in both the red and the orange paper pieces?
Color is so interesting.

We are celebrating the color orange!


I'm sharing my day with these bloggers:


This blog hop is for everyone!
Have fun visiting each blog and making new friends.

They have worked hard to show us some new ideas, so be sure to thank them with 
a sweet comment!

Those little guys are as cute as can be! They look mostly orange to me, but it's interesting how lighting and environment can change the hue. This was a great hop that was full of inspiration in orange! xo

Annie said...

How adorable the little turtles are! You are right about the colors and how they play in light or the lack of and how we can see the same thing as another person yet see it differently. I am orangy glad to have seen this blog hop!
