Blue is the color, and 2 pillows done

So I thought I'd look at my crayons for guidance on the "real" color of blue.  (I hope this isn't a spoiler for you, but for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge  Angela of soscrappy has announced the color for January and it is blue.) So here are my findings.  It took me three different crayons before I found one that said simply "blue"... (I found Cornflower and Cerulean first.)

and here it is. I thought it a bit greyish blue, in person and for my tastes, so I looked up a few other blues for comparison. See below:

The one in the upper left is Pacific Blue, and lower left is Cerulean. On the right top is Cornflower and on the bottom right is Indigo. (Indigo is more my idea of blue.) We will see what the scrap bag and the stash have to offer. I'll have something as near to blue as I can get it by Saturday.
Good Luck to all the RSC players.
I finished the back on the second pillow cover today. (You know I'm slow.)

Yes, the second one is smaller... I boo booed, but no big. I didn't promise that they would be the same.

So tonight we are going to the movies. We're going to see Unbroken.

We would have had the grands over to play cards or board games and snack, but they are all still out of town. I hope they are having a wonderful time. I hope all my peeps are having a wonderful time tonight.... Be Safe! Drive defensively!

Hugs and Happy New Year!


  1. Love the cushions Terri and it doesn't master that they are not botch the same size!
    Good to see you're in the RSC 2015!

  2. ☆☆☆ Hugs & Happy New Year to you too! ☆☆☆

  3. Love the cushions. Can't believe it's a new RSC year. Looking forward to using up some of my blue scraps : )
    Happy New Year to you, too!

  4. Love your idea of using the crayons to find your blue! I enjoy the range of tones in each, but this is a good lesson to remember.

  5. I have discovered that my stash is void of medium type blues; but I am going with what I have and going to mix in some cherry-picked mini charms and charms to add to my last posted pix. This is the Year of --GOT IT? USE IT! for me...liking those pillows....hugs,

  6. Your pillows look great! I haven't checked my blue scraps but I am pretty certain I have something that will work. ;)

  7. I want to see Unbroken. I read the book, and it was great. I like the brown string pillows. Have fun going thru all of your 'blues'. Happy New Year!
