And as others have said, a hobby should be relaxing and fun. Color is subjective.
I liked your description of your grandmother. She sounds a lot like mine was. She made the ugliest quilts out of double-knit polyester. Those suckers will never wear out, partly because they're polyester and partly because they're so ugly they're only used under something else so you don't have to look at them!
Edited for spelling.
