Mmm, yellow

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.

  1. Ooo, I love yellow! It’s my favorite color, but I have very few yellow clothing items – these pictures make me want more! I have a hard time finding yellow fabric though, so I’m jealous of your two pieces waiting to be made into something fabulous!
