Purple is a Good Thing

Took an uphol­stery class at Pacif­ic Fab­rics over the week­end. I want to make new cush­ions for the porch fur­ni­ture.

purple is good!

pur­ple is good!

The result of about 5 hours of work is this love­ly and quite use­less cush­ion. I like the drip effect of the stripes and dots.

It’s not as hard as I thought but not easy either. Most­ly I end up with an aching back.

Trivia I Need

ColourLovers post­ed a list of all 120 Cray­ola cray­on col­ors and their (approx­i­mate) hex and RGB codes. The list was com­plied by Aaron at Col​orSchemer​.com.

I am now going to waste sev­er­al hours cre­at­ing a cus­tom Pho­to­shop palette of these col­ors.

Sigh.

BTW When did the Cray­ola site change so much? I remem­ber it as being a much sweet­er and less loud­ly mar­ket­ing dri­ven place. They do still pro­vide nice images of their prod­ucts.
