I also find colour gazing is another simple way to clear out left over thoughts and irritations... almost as soothing as dunking chocolate in a warm mug of tea (forbidden luxury I know).
One recent colour gazing moment was tuning in to this lovely hazy faded mix of delicate duck egg blue, bitter chocolate, cloud grey and other lovely shades of nearly neutralness. Witness the new cardigan from East... a truly indulgent purchase which sort of sums up this lovely seasonal mix.

I have some favourite designs, those tried and tested that you find yourself making again and again... among which is my Sugar Candy bracelet. It is an easy mix of different netting techniques from around the world, worked over coloured acrylic crystal cabs. I've worn this one nearly every day since I made it using gold lined clear aqua seed beads with a matt mushroom colour accent.

Once the colours start to catch your eye it's amazing how easy it is to gravitate towards them as the new favourite.
So at this point should I confess to the dove grey and teal stripe cardi gleaned from the White Stuff sale?... the lace scarf in a very intriguing mix of charcoal and teal I found on a street stall?... or should I just go put the kettle on!!!
