Color Association...

Do you associate colors with certain things?  I know it's a random question, but I've been thinking about it lately.  I'm working on the Camelot Snowman monthly stitcheries and I need to decide what color to use on each one.  I suppose I could have done traditional redwork or bluework, but it didn't occur to me when I started.  The first few months were easy: January is blue, February is red, and March is green (to me anyway). 

(To be honest, I think of January as more of a white, but then the stitching wouldn't show up at all - so blue was a good second choice.)

But what about the rest of the months?
  • April - Pink?
  • May - Red
  • June -
  • July -
  • August - Red or Orange
  • September -
  • October - Black or Orange
  • November - Rust or Brown
  • December - Blue
Hmmm.  Any suggestions?  What colors are these months to you?  I suppose I could look for a fabric that I think represents that month (or holiday) and pull colors from it, but I'm hoping to use my stash as much as possible.

Here's the stitching I finished for March...

I still need to turn it into it's own little wallhanging, but I've got some time.

Until later...
