I love colour. I like rainbows. I get all the colours all in one place for my visual delight.
I was a child in the seventies. One of my all time favourite shirts had an iron-on with a unicorn and a rainbow. I remember going in the shop and picking it out. It was the kind of place that you picked your shirt and then you got to pick the iron-on. Would I wear that shirt now? Uhm, probably not, but if it was lurking around my mom's house, I'd give it to Mollie to wear.
Rainbows are big in Steiner (Waldorf) schools. My daughter goes to a Steiner school, and my son will be starting there next year. Mollie doesn't have a school uniform, but is not allowed to wear black to school. Clothing that is made of beautiful colours is encouraged. You will notice that I don't tend to sew for my children in dark, drab colours. This is one reason for that.
So why am I waffling about rainbows? I've made a few rainbow redondos...
If you're lucky, you might be able to snag one if you come visit me at the Lorien Markets. I am not listed as a stall holder because I am part of the playgroup parents stall. So that little blurb about meeting playgroup parents, well, I'd be one of them. If you happen to be out in the Hills area on Saturday drop by and say hello. Maybe even do a bit of holiday shopping.
