Friday Fun Day, The Giveaway and Colors...

Hi Everyone,

No, I did not, in fact, get burried in an avelanche of fabric (it was a close thing though). I had so many orders last weekend that it took me until Thursday afternoon to get them all out. Crazy!

Here is what we are giving away today:

Bella!

Head on over to Echinops and Aster to win a little of this.

Yesterday ... as I was searching for color inspiration in stock photos... providence (and my email) brought me the Pantone Color Forecast for Spring 2013... I know some of you said you don't like the Pantone colors but I gotta tell you these ones are gonna knock your socks off... I mean there is nothing not to love here.

I decided to show them in fabrics of course:

  3. I've been watching the Pantone color predictions for years. My experience is that a few people like them, but a lot of other people have a whooooole lot of trouble envisioning most of them in their own homes.
    What I've learned is the importance of being true to ourselves (making things in the colors that make our hearts sing)and not paying a whole lot of attention to what Pantone or trendsetters suggest. In fact, I think the popularity of white on white decorating may well be due to the fact that the predicted colors don't make our hearts sing. At the same time, I recognize that those who are marketing new things want the older things to be obsolete and do let the predictions guide them as they manufacture their products.
    That said, it's nice of you to show real fabrics in these colors.

  13. Ha, I still don't like the colors overall even if I like some of your fabric choices ;) Really that just means I will be making my own clothes this fall instead of going to Macy's I guess!
