Hello My Fellow Stashbusters!April is here and while I cannot personally testify to the season's changing, I hear and see hope from your photos and believe it will come eventually to this snowy windy prairie. This month harkens back to simpler younger days when friendships were started with the important questions. There was no need to ask your name or your age, just, What's your favorite color?
COLOR! The more the better!
You can sew anything you want as long as it's bursting with color!
April's Curating Challenge: We all know that color can influence everything from our appetite to our attitude and it's time our fabric collection reflects that. We've already had a sneak peek on how using color can create a cohesive wardrobe; and we'll definitely be expanding on that theme this month; because knowing the colors we love can help us be wiser in our shopping by identifying what colors we have and want more of. This will ensure that going forth we will truly be curating fabrics we will enjoy whether they are on the shelf or being turned into something else.

Your challenge for this month is to create your own color palette. Don't panic we'll have interviews and a post full of helpful links to get us through this crazy process. Tonight my questions for you are: do you have a color palette? How do you use it? and most importantly, What's your favorite color?
Great timing on this! I made a palette recently as part of the Colette Wardrobe Architect series, and am working on a plan with a narrower section of the palette for a capsule wardrobe. We'll see how this influences my future sewing and fabric shopping plans, but you can see what I did here: http://sew-and-so.blogspot.com/2014/02/wardrobe-architect-week-5-colors.html
(Also, my favorite color is pretty much a tossup between blue and green. I've found myself drawn very much to teal for a few years now, as a compromise between the two.)
Yes, what a great theme! I have a colour palette, I have all of them! I love all of them, I am so excited! But if I were to limit myself to one colour, it probably would be blue and yellow and orange and pink. I also like purple... You get the point!
Sweet! Sewing with color is what I'm in the mood for right now.
Does leopard count as a colour? Zebra? How about snakeskin? My favourite colour might depend on the day of the week. Could be purple, cobalt, kelly green, red. Orange! yes, that's it. Orange, pumpkin, sienna, paprika and mustard. Did I mention leopard?
Pink is my favorite color, but I'm willing to wear other colors sometimes, if I must. I'm tempted to make my color palette all shades of pink, but since I don't like pink pants (except for scrubs and I haven't had a job where I needed those in a really long time) I guess I'll have to add some blue and black to my color combo.
I like this, I have some very colorful stuff to try to use up!
Ooh I'll go check it out. I think color palettes are so interesting. Teal is a great color too.
You've been making some amazing colorful stuff so I can't wait to see what you come up with.
Yea for theme matching mood. I'm ready for anything that doesn't involve snow. :)
Sounds like you gravitate towards natural colors with the animals and the shades of orange you choose. Remember a neutral is whatever you make it for your wardrobe!
Hurrah! I can't wait to see what you come up with.
Perfect timing I am just about to cut out a lemon blouse (same fabric as the lemon peplum) and need to see what others are lurking in the stash.
OOh, I look forward to seeing it! Always fun peeking at what other have in their stashes as well!
