So my plan for this year, and I sincerely hope that it doesn’t get the better of me, is to highlight one Kona Cotton color per day for the full 365 days of 2021. And it SHOULD work because there are 365 different Kona Cotton colors in their full collection.
I missed January 1-3 and today is the 4th so I’ve had to play a little catch-up (not ketsup). So the colors for yesterday and today are Baby Pink (189) and Chili (1838).
Most people have strong reactions, think likes and dislikes, for certain colors. Everyone falls into a comfortable zone with specific colors, so much so, that they tend to wear those “favorite” colors over and over and over and over again. Baby pink and most pinks don’t bother me. In fact I loved my bedroom with it’s pink painted walls when I was a kid growing up. Of course, nobody could take it to an insane degree like Jayne Mansfield. This famous actresses house had a bathroom with pink shag carpeting (a very popular type of carpet in the 60’s and 70’s) on the floor, the tub, up the walls, AND on the ceiling. Now THAT’s dedication to a color. And another famous actress, Joan Collins, had an all pink bedroom, and obviously loved the color so much that she dyed her poodles’ hair pink in 1955.
But if you think about babies (girl babies), you can NEVER go wrong with a soft Baby Pink.
JANUARY 3rd – Baby Pink
JANUARY 4th (TODAY) – Chili
Kona’s Chili was a new color that came out in 2019. I love a color that makes me think of food. I love food. Oh, but that isn’t the subject of this blog post. So we will move on. Although, the one surprising thing about this color is that when I think of Chili peppers, I do think of a RED RED. This red is more of an orangey-red and that actually kind of took me by surprise. I never wear red if I can avoid it. Aside from the fact that it would clash with my hair, I just never looked good in that color. Other than a small “spark” of color for a quilt, I don’t generally use it in my quilting too much either, unless it’s drowned and mixed with a bunch of other colors to basically drown it out.
What’s your favorite color? Send me a comment and let me know.
