How well do you see colour?
Yesterday, in fact nearly all weekend it rained. It was one of those weekends that never really got going dark and cold. So over the weekend I sewed, and I catalogued my patterns online with Evernote. I can take no credit for this idea as I got it from lululouise's blog. It will enable me to see what I have if I spot a piece of fabric on my travels and hopefully match it up. Of course I have only catalogued the illustrations so it will be guess work on the amount of fabric I require. Has anyone else done this or am I being too organised!
Now how good are you at colour matching? My friend says that I have a good eye for colour. Very useful when dressmaking, matching fabrics, threads etc or general clothes shopping. My friend however has no colour sense at all. She often asks me "does this go with this". When sewing I find this very beneficial. I can go into town without a piece of fabric and bring back the right colour reel of cotton. Now, while surfing the net the other day I came across a colour test what fun I thought. So I gave it a go. My score was 8 not bad. Give it a go but beware, it can send you loopy. Let me know how you get on.
