I thought it would be a good idea to let you know about some really sharing blogs and web sites out there..these are blogs that I find so helpful and inspiring..(if you have any that you would also like to share let us know and we will include them)

The first Blog to SHARE with you is…

The Graphics Fairy

I can’t shout loud enough about this blog..it has to be one of the most useful resources i have seen and completely free to download

I use the downloads a lot for journaling and inspiration..

A BIG THANK YOU to Karen for sharing with us

It’s only a short post from me this time. I dabble in woolly crafts such as knitting and rug hooking now and again so I would like to bring to your attention that next week on Friday and Saturday June 22 & 23 the Woolfest is taking place at Mitchell’s Lakeland Livestock Centre, Cockermouth, Cumbria CA13 0QQ. The entrance fee is £6.00 per day. Click here for more info. This is something I would really like to attend. Perhaps some of you might be interested too.

Happy stitching.

choosing a colour palette

whether we are picking fabric for a sewing project, paint for a craft project, backgrounds for a journal or decorating our home..COLOUR is important

but what goes with what ..how do you begin?..i think by grouping together  colour in a palette you have a start point from which to keep or discard your colours.

A really helpful tool i have found is a website called Design Seeds it does the job for you by grouping colours by palette theme and gives a really good idea how colours blend..you can copy and paste the palettes onto your computer and use the ideas as a start point
