Colourful Friday-Teal

Hello and Welcome to Colourful Friday.

This weeks chosen colour is  Teal.

Robyn really had me scratching my head on this one.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teal

Teal comes from a mixture of the primary colour blue, and the secondary colour green
which is mixed with some gray.

There is also Teal Blue and Teal Green.

Having these clues to use really didn't help me much at all. It seems we have very few Teal items here at Kainga. I have been out and about doing the tourist thing the last week and that didn't help at all either. So you will have to use your imagination a bit when it comes to my display of Teal. Close enough is near enough in my books!!!!

Lucy made the cushion last year in Textile and Design. The teal blue mobile phone holder and the cherub that is pale teal blue in real life.

I purchased these two fat quarters and thread over at Toodyay during the week. Did you see the Teal wishing stone next to the cotton .

This towel is pretty well near the Teal colour.

Our teapot lid could be Teal Green.

I am sure you will find some Teal in amongst these scraps.

These cross stitch patterns are probably the closest thing to the other Teal that I have.

Lucy did this tie dying last year at school. I am sure if you look at it you will find some  light shade of Teal. If not don't worry. I think it is pretty enough to be included in this post of "prettiness alone".

Now next week Robyn has us looking for Christmas Colours. Thank you for that Robyn,an easy one to end the year.

Thank you for visiting today and using your imagination with my little collection of Teal.

Happy Colourful Friday.

I think you're very clever and using the Teal Cross stitch patterns is beaut!!
I found teal incredibly hard...
I thought I knew what it was....
It's been an interesting week *grin*
Happy Friday Bev and here's to next week... Wooohoo!!

I think the photos you have chosen are quite representative of teal. There are some lovely fabrics in your pics. But I think you have to be considered the smartest with your inclusion of the cross stitch patterns for the teal ducks. What a great idea!
Have a lovely day.

Hi Bev, I was a bit jittery about finding the colour teal as well. But if you have a good look you do find it! Great collection you have. Kind regards, Anita.

I think you did very well with your teal colours - even if they did have you scratching your head. I Love the tie-dye fabric Lucy made - wow!

I do love the color teal. It always makes me think of the beach and those beautiful ocean waters. That fabric Lucy dyed is quite gorgeous. How fun!

Carol said...

Looks great. We appear to be using the same color of thread :)
Love your cross-stitch patterns.
