My last Sew Weekly post started off with a paragraph about my warm feelings towards the colour yellow: I can’t get enough of it. Right now I’m filling up my Pinterest boards with yellow loveliness:
At work the other day, a colleague and I happened to be talking about colour in the context of classrooms (as a Speech and Language Therapist, I work in schools on a consultative basis, so I see a lot of different classrooms. Some of them are so visually cluttered that I find it hard to focus – I have no idea how the kids cope). So my colleague then emailed me a handout she’d been given about emotional response to colour. Apparently, yellow is: “recognised by humans faster than any other colour, evokes spontaneity, is joyful, optimistic, warm and signifies communication”. It’s even greater than I thought!
Just as well I’ve got some more yellow fabric waiting for my attention then.
