School's out for summer!

Congratulations to the Class of 2011! Time flies when you are getting old. I watch some of the kids walk across the stage to get their diplomas and I think "Already? You were just in my freshman Algebra class last year!" It was a wild and crazy school year and I'm sure I'm not alone in being ready to move on.

I have been adding Project Spectrum photos to my Tumblr blog ( but here are a few more reds:Yummy frosted sugar cookies (storebought) and a paper-pieced heart.

Red Hot in May

I'm going to play along with Project Spectrum 5. You can read about it here. it started out in the knitting-blogosphere as a way to organize projects for a year, following the colors of the rainbow. Lolly (the organizer) has set up a blog in tumblr (new to me, but I created an account there too) as well as on Revelry and Facebook.

This year, the project will run from May - November, with the "technical" colors red, blue and green, along with their dditives, pink, aqua and yellow. Each participant interprets the project differently. For me, it will be an exercise in awareness...I read about PS5 on Friday, and all weekend I have been noticing the red things in my environment!

For instance: red scraps of fabric on my cutting table.
A red trash bucket:
And my favorite girl in a red dress:
