For some reason INDIGO is always a bit problematic for me. I scrounged around a bit to find what I consider to be INDIGO. Hope you are all having better luck!

If you are scratching your head...today is the next installment in the Search for Roy G Biv (the colors of the rainbow). If you'd like to play along...post up to five INDIGO (your interpretation) photos on your blog and leave a comment here or on Jennifer Coyne Qudeen's blog. We'll then link to your post. It's always so much fun to see what everyone discovers on their search so I hope you will join in.
I'll continue to update through Saturday, June 20...so you do have a bit of time to get your photos together.
Fiona at Paper Ponderings has a beautiful quote about the "in-between time" of dusk and a lovely photo of a rich INDIGO sea.
Mary Ann at Blue Sky Dreaming has some 3 in 1 INDIGO!
Sharmon Davidson has a wonderful "chart" and description of elusive INDIGO! Her artistic examples are exquisite!
Susan and Elizabeth at PG Fiber2Art have some gorgeous INDIGO shibori examples from their play day of dyeing.
Margaret at Charleston Stitcher has inspirational INDIGOS!
Cathy at Bucolic Dreaming looked to the skies for her INDIGO.
Fran at At the End of the Day found some arty INDIGOS.
Maya Matthew of Take Diversion loves INDIGO so much that it's the color of her front door!
Sacre Bleu! Roxanne Lasky at Ideas in Cloth is really getting her hands into her INDIGO this month!
Linda Stokes has two gorgeous INDIGO shibori pieces this month!
Jennifer says INDIGO is one of her favorites colors to create with. Check out her selection this month.
We'll continue the Search for the final color, VIOLET and beyond through the end of the year:

Julie, here's the link to our indigo post: http://pgfiber2art.blogspot.com/2015/06/go-indigo.html. We had a great time playing with indigo dye last summer!ReplyDelete
Some really beautiful results from your play date with indigo!Delete
Hi Julie - I like the pattterns of your indigos, especially the tunic from the textile museum! I have posted my indigos over at my blog (I think I really did post it this time!) :)ReplyDelete
I was so lucky to have one of the Textile Museum docents as a student so a small group of us got a private tour of the show. Amazing textiles...works of anonymous art!Delete
I think you did a great job on your search for indigo. I found it to be a challenge but I've posted what I could find!!ReplyDelete
Indigo is always a challenge for me and then I look what others post and I go..."duh"...why didn't I think of that!Delete
Julie, beautiful textiles, I love the way denim wears time. My indigo search took me to the skies! http://www.bucolicdreaming.com/ReplyDelete
Oh...loved your sky photos!Delete
Hi Julie. I love your ceramic dish - such lovely shapes and breaking of the iron oxide as a contrast.ReplyDelete
I have posted a very small selection this time. As I explained in my post, I've been doing an online course which has occupied all my brain and creative energies!
Good for you doing an online course. Would like to do that but feeling overwhelmed at the moment. Did love your two photos though..the Grand Canyon brought back many memories of my two trips there.Delete
I've got in late this month but better late than never and my post is here - http://takediverson.blogspot.in/2015/06/searching-for-roy-g-biv-2015-indigo.html.ReplyDelete
That's a gorgeous ceramic dish and the Equinox cloth looks so warm and soft and comforting.
Hi Maya...loved your door! I haven't worked on the Equinox cloth in a while and now it is the Solstice! Ah well...I have it laying out now and it is inviting me back to do some more stitching....Delete
Beautiful Julie! The Equinox Cloth has me intrigued. More photos?ReplyDelete
Haven't worked on the cloth in a while...have been too busy but may start up on it again soon. I have most of it stitched together but have not decided what to do after that.Delete
Thanks Julie for another planned journey through colour and textures... all of the blogs had great references and photos... enjoyed this Sun. am just cruising through. Great group of friends - you are blessed!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much and glad that you enjoyed "hopping" around to the different blogs...I find it great fun to see what everyone finds each month...Hope you can join us soon!Delete
