Orange and Yellow

Orange and yellow: two colors that can remind you of summer.  Colors that can stand out in a crowd.

For instance: my Retro Cat picture.  Someday the little gray cat sitting in the chair may draw your attention.  Right now what you notice is orange.  It’s coming along well enough though so who am I to argue.

Yellow: bright, bubbly and blonde.  This patch of sunshine is going to grow up to be the blonde hair of Betty as designed by Dork Stitch. (see her post here) Theoretically I should have started with Archie, but it turns out his hair is the same color as the chair above.  So I might wait on that one.  J

So that’s what I’ve been up to lately.  A portion of it anyway.  I’ll be back on Monday after a nice IHSW.  I may even manage to work in another color. Pink anyone?

Happy stitching World.


  1. As always, I love the retro cat, especially seeing it as it develops! The colors in that are so cool, and the night sky window is really pretty. Also, good luck with Betty! I haven't started either of them yet, but I've been digging for Josie and the Pussycats references, so I worry that I'll get distracted and never make Archie and Betty. I almost forgot it, but I'll send you the Millie chart the next time I'm on the computer that holds her, too. ^^; Have a nice IHSW!

  2. Retro Cat is really coming along nicely! Have a happy IHSW!

  3. Looking good! I love the starry sky and the building, and the bright orange sure looks good :D

  4. Your wips look great!

  5. Great job Tiki. I love that shade of orange. (It's Bengals orange, lol.) Maybe you could give the chair black stripes?!?
