Wellll I have been dyeing purples! Yup – purples. Something I rarely have in stock. BECAUSE yesterday Sue came to visit and she brought along her beautiful sunflower chairpads – all shades of golds and yellows and PURPLE BACKGROUND! I have never used purple as a background but it was STUNNING. And I realised quickly why it was so beautiful – complementary colours! All those soft beautiful golds and yellows just pop on that complementary purple! So as soon as Sue left I started dyeing purple! And old golds! May have to try a rug with a purple background now!!! Here is a picture of Sues beautiful chairpads:

And a picture of my purples and golds:

Add in a little burnt orange:

and then a little olivey green and wow what an amazing rug that would make!!!

  1. who knew chairpads could be so gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. It’s kind of funny that you are dying purples this morning, and Karen K is dying sapphires!

  2. Those chair pads are simply awesome. I love them. But wow do I ever love those purples, golds and oranges. I simply have to do a project incorporating these colors. Purple and orange are my favourite combination of colours. I have a gorgeous silk scarf that is purple and orange with a dragon fly motif. I love it.

  3. Beautiful! Makes you think of fall and Halloween!! Those colors need to be in a cute Halloween rug.
