I’ve been inspired by all things green lately. It began with Pantone’s colour of the year, Emerald, spruiked as lively, radiant and lush. A sydney summer with tropical plants and green lawns played a part and the deal was sealed when I watched original The Wizard of Oz. Oh that vintage Emerald City!
So I got to designing some more balloon fabric and have snuck in some stitching time over easter. I love the way that blues and aqua greens play together and that you never quite know how it’s all going to look once they’re sewn up into balloons.
Now it’s just matter of choosing the final four for my new Emerald City hot air balloon kits and fabric panels. Tough choice. Normally as soon as I see the fabric samples printed a few jump out and a few can easily be binned. Not so much this time. There’s been a flurry of conversation over on facebook and instagram as to which balloons should make the cut. So far it’s looking like the solid colours will go, but I’m going to finish each of them beforeI make a final decision. I feel strangely attached to all of them. What do you think… ? I’d love your opinion too.
