Another week passes! There’s nothing like doing a daily project to make you mindful of the passing time…! If you’re here for the first time – a recap – I’m doing the 100 Day Project on Instagram (#the100dayproject), creating flat lay photos of fabrics and haberdashery based on palettes I glean from Design Seeds. You can see all my collections on my Instagram feed with the tag #100daysofcuratedcolour, and you can also find them, very nicely presented on my Pinterest board – Curated Colours for Stitching Inspiration.
64/100: Design Seeds – Flora: Charmed Flora
65/100: Market Hues: Fresh Hues
66/100: Design Seeds – Market Hues: Fresh Hues
67/100: Design Seeds – Wanderlust: Color Horizon
68/100: Design Seeds – Summer: Hut Hues
69/100: Design Seeds – Flora: Flora Tones
70/100: Design Seeds – Creature Color
I’m always surprised by how much people love the more neutral or single tone palettes. Or maybe I do a better job of them because they are a bit easier. Anyway, 70 was the winner over on Instagram this week, closely followed by 66 and 64. I think I agree with everyone else – what do you think?
The colours have become rather burdensome over the last couple of weeks (there have been so many distractions, not least the lure of General Election chat/angst), but I am so determined to get to 100 that I have pretty much managed to keep up with the daily schedule. I am going to keep on with my colour boards and am hoping that the love comes back a bit, as I reach the final stretch. You can see all my collections on my Instagram feed with the tag #100daysofcuratedcolour, and you can also find them, very nicely presented on my Pinterest board – Curated Colours for Stitching Inspiration.
57/100: Design Seeds – Summer: Color Currency
58/100: Design Seeds – Summer: Color Frond
59/100: Design Seeds – Wanderlust: Color Wander
60/100: Design Seeds – Maker Hues: Color Maker
61/100: Design Seeds – Flora: Flora Tones
62/100: Design Seeds – Succulents: Succulent Hues
63/100: Design Seeds – Flora: Flora Tones
58, 61 and 63 all managed to make it into the 100s with Instagram likes, but 61, with those glorious peaches and cream shades, was the winner. I think that 63 is my favourite – I’d love to know yours.
So – I’m nearly at the half way stage of my 100 Day Project on Instagram (#the100dayproject). Putting together my #100daysofcuratedcolour palettes has been a brilliant experience so far, but I am wondering about tweaking the idea for the next 50 days. I’d like to work some more with the palettes I’ve already created, but not sure what to do yet. We shall see! So here is this week’s collection of fabrics and haberdashery curated by colour palettes found on Design Seeds:
43/100: Design Seeds – Flora: Color Flora
44/100: Design Seeds – Flora: Color Flora
45/100: Design Seeds – Slow Living: Color Seasons
46/100: Design Seeds – Succulents: Succulent Hues
47/100: Design Seeds
48/100: Design Seeds – Color Collage: Inked Hues
49/100: Design Seeds – Wanderlust: Color Dwell
44/100 won the popularity prize over on Instagram this week. My favourite is 46 – it’s so unusual. Would love to hear what you think. And if you have any ideas about tweaks to my project for the next 50 days, then I’d be so glad to hear them.
