Ripple #11 – Summer Skies

This color combination reminds me of the wide open skies that I grew up with in the mid-west.

412 wider

I remember watching puffy white clouds sail from one horizon to the other on hot breezy summer days.

412 widest view

What a lovely visual reminder that before long it will be summer again – Happy 1st Day of Spring! – March 20th.

The darker blue is Red Heart Super Saver ‘Light Periwinkle’. Sorry, I don’t have names for any of the other colors, but I think just about any light blue, light yellow and white would do.

  1. Oh, yay! My phone let me log in! Linda, I have been reading every post. It’s awesome! Thank you so much for sharing all your creative adventures! Your entryway looks FANTASTIC!!!!! Now, I want to go looking for some cabinets! Lol!

    I grew up in the midwest, too! This ripple does, indeed, recall summer days spent lying on my back watching those puffy clouds floating above.

    • Hi Karen!

      Glad to hear you’ve been able to catch up with all I’ve been doing. My craft room has been a busy, busy place lately!!
      Thank You! It’s fun sharing my projects with you, but nothing beats the Ta-Dah! moment of a complex one like our Entryway! I admire and enjoy using it every day.

      Linda, Verneta, Karen. . . that makes three. Any more midwesterners out there?

    Beautiful … so relaxing …. laying on the grass and looking up to the sky and clouds and the sun! What state in the Midwest? I grew up in Nebraska and now live in Tennessee.

    • Thank You!!
      I’m so happy that you still enjoy seeing each new ripple. 🙂

      • Are you kidding? I LOVE seeing your ripple of the week every week! I’m still amazed at how you’re able to create such lovely ripples out of nothing every week!

        I grew up in the Port Huron area. 😉

      • And I’m amazed that it’s still Fun! lol.

        Lucky you – there was a Mary Maxim store in Port Huron! Did you ever go there for yarn or other craft supplies?
        We didn’t make the hour’s drive very often when I was a kid, but I remember some great shopping trips.
