"life is meant to be colourful"

{Dreaming at Dusk} and photos


Hi dear friends! Dreaming at dusk sounds really nice! My dictionary says that dusk is dark, twilight, grey dawn … I feel that dusk is foggy, twiglight yes, misty … soft pastel colours and greys come to my mind.



I was looking if I can find ‘dusk’ from my photos which usually have lots of colours.


Afternoon in Crete has usually most beautiful soft colours! That time is very short time after the sunset and before the dark.

But let me tell you where this came from.  Rachel at ‘Stitched in Color’ has again Mosaic Contest going on – last moment in fact to join! Theme is {Dreaming at Dust} and she has created once again the most beautiful photo collection to inspire us! There are 2 quilts which I want to make both! And the colours in her post are so so delicious! Sponsor is fantastic ‘Lark Cottons’! Their site is beautiful and inviting! It’s practically organized so it’s easy to find what you are looking for. Of course it’s terrible difficult to pick something because all their fabrics are so beautiful! I think I spent two evenings to make my mosaics even my plan was this time to go with my istinct and not to think too much.





Of course I hope to win but to choose which one is my favourite is difficult … I hope Twilight wins! Have a look what others have chosen to their mosaics – there are so many beautiful collections!

These are what I found most near to ‘dusk’ from my photos.

  1. I like the ld candle stick ; )


  2. Kauniita kuvia! Sumuiset, murretut värit ovat upeita, vaikka pidän myös kirkkaista. On ihanaa, että maailmassa on niin paljon värejä. Jokaiselle päivälle löytyy aina suosikkiväri. Molemmat mosaiikit ovat kauniita, mutta itselleni valitsisin alemman, Dawnin.


  3. Ihania kuvia! Hienosti olet onnistunut vangitsemaan niihin upeat sävyt!
