The 50s...

This square reminds me of the 1950s. Well, maybe "reminds" isn't the correct word because I wasn't born until 1970. So let's just say that it reminds me of my grandparents' house. Lots of brown, lots of green - lodged firmly in the 50s and happy as clams, they were.

Okay, they did also delve briefly into shag carpeting in the 70s, but for the most part it was pretty obvious that their glory days were from the decade of poodle skirts and cabinet televisions.

The lumpy brown couch I was banished to when my sibling and I stayed over and got giggly in the big, comfy double bed we'd started out in was the same shade of brown as the yarn I chose today. And the green in the middle of the square? We have one of the funky, vintage swivel chairs that once lived in my Grandma and Grandpa's pretty little sun room, and it happens to match the green in my square almost exactly.

And all this probably accounts for the pleasure I got from making this square, and the way I couldn't stop looking at it when I was done.

There's nothing like a little colour therapy.
