New fabrics - help me choose
Turns out that I installed Photo Editor on the netbook after all, so I've been able to crop down some photos of these shade cards. The 'Sashiko for Summer' workshop fabrics were from this gorgeous range of shot (two tone) Indian cottons. My workshop samples are on the lilac shades but the light green (col 41) and sea blue (col 43) were also popular, both from the 'Winter' card.
I've been on the lookout for subtly coloured alternatives/coordinates that would work with my Japanese fabrics and this range looks ideal. It is great for stitching sashiko. The only problem is choosing the colours! I want to have 43, 44 (Winter) and 26 (Autumn) - all blues which look like old sashiko fabrics - but I'd like to have some other colours too. Suggestions please! Click the images to enlarge them and read the shade numbers. I've been told that some are out of production at the moment, but I don't know which ones as yet.
