Scatterday O

This Scatterday brought to you by the letter O...

My Breakfast item was going to be Orange Juice. Unfortunately in this house, it's the quick or the dead when it comes to Orange Juice - and I'm just not quick enough to beat my family to it. Consequently, you have a watercolour Orange from the same page of my sketchbook as last week's apple. We'd better not need a Banana next - I really don't like to draw them (cause they always tend to look somewhat phallic).


My quest for something Shiny led me straight to my studio - I looovve shiny things and shiny fabric more than most things. Here is a small selection from my extensive collection of Organza - silk or polyester I'm a sucker for that shimmer.



While in the studio, I managed to find this O-Ring which seemed to fit the bill for our third category this week - Little Things. It is a spare one for my Gammill's bobbin-winder, and let me tell you this little thing causes no end of stress when it gets a flat spot or some other issue which stops it from performing it's very important job.


Next week's letter is going to be H and the categories are Human, Toys and Soft (yay - no bananas required!!!).

Well done, Nic. I make Irish dance costumes and am sitting here surrounding by organza (plain, crystal, embroidered, sequinned) and still didn't think of it. Oh well.

Love your wonderful, bright choices.

Love both your Orange and your Apple and your Organza looks so shiny... happy to see you had a bit of a catch up.

It's very helpful when you can draw the thing you need for your category. Clever girl. The O ring was brilliant.

Loving your watercolours Nic. Now you realise you are just going to have to draw a banana so we can appraise it.... ;-)

Very original lot of O's. You have done well. Love the shimmer in your organza.

Di said...

Gorgeous family of colours you've assembled in your photos, Nic. All warm and orangey. Very inviting and almost tactile...

Isn't the organza luscious? Hard to photograph, though, I found. Your orange is beautiful. I'm sure this house is full of O-rings, and I happen to know that David has a container full of them in his workshop. Just didn't occur to me!

Bananas don't go soft in your house? (..but they don't start with a H)

Great O post! Orange does seem to be the color of the moment on this side of the pond, and maybe yours, too.
