Feeling the Blues or Homer Laughlin Loves Me

I know the color of the year is Emerald, and I love, love, love greens, but I am also a girl that just loves some color my life.  So right on cue for my birthday Homer Laughlin releases the news of a brand new Fiestaware color: Lapis.  When I got the email announcement this morning all I could say says, "OOOOOOOOH!!!"  Last year the release of the Flamingo color was almost more than I could bear.  I swooned for weeks over that color.  I find myself not swooning, but still excited by a new color. 

The good people at Homer Laughlin released a color called Sapphire in the late 1990s for Bloomingdales.  The color had a very limited run and finding those pieces can be challenging.  I have a few pieces, but not much.  In 2005 the color Peacock was introduced and proved to be a versatile and stunning color.  I have to wonder where this hue will fit in spectrum of Fiestaware blues?

So with the blues on my mind today it is no surprised when I found myself at a LYS (local yarn store) today, I ended up with some Blue Heron cotton blend yarn in my hand.  The vibrant blue needed a home in my stash.  I will never forsake my love of green, but all I can say is today I was feeling the blues.
