Making Swatches

I hope you have had a great (long) weekend like we did. With both the boys out, we had a lot of time to be together again. We went to Amsterdam, had a lovely dinner in town, did some reading, watched TV together (we never do!) and enjoyed the quiet very much.

Now it’s all back to normal.

On my table: swatches.


I am asked to make a pair of skirt guards for a blue/cobalt cargo bike. So I started with this swatch, using bold, bright colours. But I think they are too bold.

Because of the colour of the bike, there was asked for black, blue, yellow, white and brown. So that made the next swatch.


A lot better, don’t you think? But while I was playing with these colours, I came up with another one, completely out of my comfort zone, but I love it!


Well, now all I have to do is wait and see if the buyer likes one of these colour combinations.

Groetjes, Dorien

Dorien, wat leuk dat je een bestelling binnen hebt. Moeilijk om uit die 3 te kiezen. Ik vind ze alle 3 mooi.

Groetjes, Monique

Your swatches are all very pretty. I'm favoring the first one with the bright colors. You are amazing!

I love the vibrant colours of the top swatch..though the bottome one is very pretty too! I hope your buyer likes one of them.
