my color wheel ~

the colors in my color wheel may not be the same as yours....
they are not bright primary colors ~ in fact I can't even name what color they are sometimes...
so I make up my own ~
like:

"not-quite blue"
"corn bread"
&
"cheddar"


i can't help myself ~ I. am. addicted.



"chimney-pipe"
"birch bark"


can we ever have too much? um.....no.


"fresh egg"
"graveyard dirt"
and
"october sky"






this time of the year especially, when I am in the throes of creative endeavors, preparing for shows and simply just wanting to relax & decorate this old farmhouse...these colors are my therapy.





and of course it's not just fabric that occupies my mind, but trims too...
like this humongous olive-khaki -colored rick-rack from Moda that I had to have.
(what will she do with that, they ask?...no idea, she replies, but I had to have it)
those are folded fat 1/4's the rick-rack is laying on...& those scissors are approx. 4" long, so you can now see just how huge this trim is!!!


I actually do have plans for the trim and the fabric...
~ and oh my, will you ever be surprised!
I have to be good and not 'share' everything with you right now,
but
I promise there are some exciting things on the horizon for all of us!


Blessings from the farm,
Lori

I love the huge rick rack I saw some brown at my LQS and can't wait to get some. I have no idea what I will use it for either. :-)

I especially like the yellow/golden/cheddars. They make things pop a little. Are you picky about seeing the fabric colors in person before buying? Do you ever trust your computer monitor to pick fabric colors?

I'm always excited when I see a new post on your blog.
Love the colors and your names for them!
Blessings, Patti

Constance said...

You are funny. Actually I started wool appliquing and gave away all my other fabric so have to start all over. I want to do a courthouse steps now in Cotton. So, "no" there is never enough!

The rest of the fabrics are wonderful, too!
