I think I mentioned that I am waffling about colour choices for my next crazy quilt project and it suddenly occurred to me that there is such a thing as a color generator whereby you can upload your picture and they can create a color scheme for you. That would be an ideal thing....however....here's where the question arises. Which one should I use? There are a myriad of choices and I checked out a few and ended up totally cross-eyed and confused. Several of them use programs such as photoshop (which I don't have). All I want is to be able to generate a color scheme, save it and print it so I can use it to choose my fabrics. Is there a program you use that you like? It has to be free and idiot-proof for me to figure it out, so do you have any suggestions? Thank you in advance!!!
My mailbox yielded something really special the other day...
This is a beautiful fabric postcard created by Freda Butler (thank you Freda!!) and came through the mail without so much as a mark. The photo doesn't do it justice - there is a lot of sparkle that the camera doesn't pick up.
Before I get into the daily dose of mumblings, I want to share a warning with you. This one is for women and is something we all need to be aware of. Thieves are watching for you when you get out to pump your gas. How many of us leave our purses on the seat while we get out? They simply pull up beside your car, and while your back is turned, open your door and snatch your purse and are gone before you realize anything has happened. So....lock your car ladies and be safe!!
