Blue Jay - August Colour of the Month (Non Subscription Option)

Yarn Base

Unique colour creations exclusively available each month.

Our 2020 Colour of the Month Inspiration series celebrates the things in our lives, both past and present, that have inspired us to become who we are today!

Our August Colour of the Month celebrates wild Blue Jays, who migrate to Southern Alberta during the summer months. In Caroline's words:

"One of the things I find that brings a lot of joy and inspiration to me are the wild birds that come to my yard. We are like an oasis on the edge of the city and we get all sorts of birds you don’t usually see in the city proper like hummingbirds and Gold Finches. I was very excited to see true Blue Jays start to visit a couple of years ago as previously we’d only had Stellar’s Jays. These birds are beautiful and seem to like the more mature trees and shrubs that I’ve planted as habitat! They are very well behaved in my yard too and seem to like to just hang out for a while before they start migrating in the fall."
