Sewing/Crafts Blog List and Color Guides

I was delighted to discover the other day that my blog is on the Big List of Sewing Blogs—an aggregate listing of active craft and sewing blogs created by Suzical based on Techorati ratings.



My blog is about living my life creatively and happily. There are tons of things I do besides just sewing or crafting. As such, I’m honored to be included on Suzical’s list.

Speaking of sewing and crafting, I’ve found a way to match/coordinate colors when shopping for fabric, apparel, dishes, and so on. Pantone® makes a shopping color guide you can just slip in your purse.

One time I took a dinner plate to the store so I could find just the right fabric to sew matching placemats and napkins. Now I can just take my color guide. In the photo above, I’m trying out fabric combinations for a quilt project using the Pantone® system.

I work with Pantone Color guides for my design work. I never thought of taking them with me when shopping for fabrics!
