Adventures in Embroidery -  Yellow:  The Happiest Colour in the Rainbow!

Adventures in Embroidery - Yellow: The Happiest Colour in the Rainbow! My Adventures in Embroidery continue into June and I thought it only fitting to celebrate YELLOW this month! Yellow is the happiest colour in the rainbow! It was my grandfather's favourite colour. He even convinced my Nan to let him paint their house that colour and my childhood was filled with visits to the big yellow house in Saskatoon!
