I spent time with the grands over the holidays when I was off work. We did fun stuff like baking and crafts. One of the things that Miss A loves to do is color. Her mom doesn't enjoy the smell of crayons, so she colors a lot with markers at home, and more with crayons at my house.
I love crayons. In September when school supplies are everywhere, I just can't fight the urge to purchase a new box. Most of the time I buy the biggest box I can find. The more colors the better, right?
That used to be 64 but now it's 96.
OH HO! Turns out it's not... witness the Crayon Ultimate Collection, when did they come up with this?? I want one. NOW!
I like to play with the colors so they go from one spot to another, or they flow from blue to green to whatever. This is one I did with A and we used the markers she made with her Christmas gift, plus the other markers we had around the house. January in Wisconsin seems to be calling out for color. It's either white, gray or black here this time of year. I was thinking about how I could translate this into fabric for either a wall hanging or a quilt top. It would involve a lot of fussy cutting, but wouldn't it be fun?
Maybe I should think smaller... place mats?
Oh, the choices!
