Straightening for the Season

Here it is - - - - our dining room, again.

It's been a long time since we've been able to enjoy it.

Cleared away all traces of sewing, dollmaking, etc., so that we could have a nice Thanksgiving dinner at the dining room table.

We all enjoyed seeing the room as it was intended.

Here's were the real work was done ! ! ! Yes, I did ! ! !

Color Wheel Comments

In response to my Color Theory class post, a 'stash' is the collection of fabric that we quilters seem to accumulate on a regular basis. It is composed of both fat quarters and yardage. {Fat Quarter being an 18" x 22" cut of fabric.}

An interesting use of the color wheel that I learned was using the 'Grey Scale' when selecting colors. The grey scale uses ten steps from pure black to white. One approach is to use colors at least two steps away from each other. As the saying goes: "Color gets the credit while value does the work!".
