Can you remember Colours?


You will know that I use thread to attach my handmade buttons to the ceramic quilt bowls and also to sew up the threadbare patches?  Well, I needed more thread and thought I'd just pop in as I was in the town. But which green is mine, and which is the blue that matches the blue glaze I use?

You'd think it would be easy enough to choose, since I use these threads all the time.  No .... not worth the risk.  Come back another time - a little more prepared!

So I did.  I took my buttons in and matched them up.  Yes ...  I can hear you ... of course, I could just keep the little labels or make a note of the numbers, but that would be way too organised for me!

So, I am starting to worry that we are not organised enough for the Quilt Show at the weekend - I do have lists of lists - that's a good start!  Come and see us if you're going - we're on Stand 52.  We'll be the ones looking like we've forgotton something!

  3. It is so funny isn't it, sometimes and some colours you can remember perfectly, and other things, other times, nothing! You seem to have made some pretty darn good matches there now though! Hope that you have a great time at the quilt show! xx

  4. no your right, it was not worth the risk, i'm not good at matching colours unless they are in front of me.
    Good luck with the show.

  5. I go for serendipity when it comes to threads and never by the numbers! Must admit though if I need to match a colour then I take the item with me. Good luck for the exhibition. xx

  7. I think the problem is that there's just so many different shades of the same colour. Good luck at the show, I'm sure you'll have a fabulous time.

  10. I'm sure you'll not be alone in feeling less well prepared than you actually are ... it's a bit like when you go on holiday and worry you left a tap running isn't it. Good luck at the show.

  11. Hope the show went well. I love that photo of the buttons with the matching threads. I'm usually quite good at remembering colours but with so many to choose from I don't think I would risk it either.

  12. I hope the show went well. I'd be the same over the colours although I would actually keep the labels but I wouldn't be able to find them anywhere when I next needed them!

  13. Cathy! How have I lost your blog from my blog-roll? I nearly missed this altogether! How did you get on at the show? I love your laced pots, and quite understand the need to go back and check the colours!! Lxx

  14. That's so true about colors! You think that you'll remember the right shade or tint, and then you get to the store and stare at the display. Best wishes on the show and I hope that everything goes just right for you. I so wish I could drop by to meet you and to see your work in person.
