This week's TTT will be a short one, but oh so helpful. We're having another party this weekend...this time for Courtney's high school graduation...we've invited over 80 people, so I've been running around like a maniac. I'm having a carnival theme with booths, games, prizes, a moon bounce, cotton candy machine and a full dinner. I ought to have my head examined, but you only graduate from high school once. Ok, back to Tuesday's helpful hint.
Paint chips...love the free paint chips. We've been painting for the party, so I grabbed these paint chips while at the hardware store. She wants a blue and yellow theme, because those are the colors of the university she will be going to in 25 days (lump in throat).
Now I know there is a TTT in these paint chips somewhere...
How about matching the chips to one of the fabrics that you already have in your stash and then just take the paint chip strip with you to the quilt shop. You can then match any range of colors to the fabric, because you already know it matched the strip.
This really takes the guessing out of picking and matching colors, because Benjamin Moore has already done the color work for you.
Hope you like this short, but sweet Tool Time Tuesday.
I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful comments and emails. I really miss visiting your blogs, but I know my life will slow down soon...this summer has been a crazy one. I will try and get back to you after this weekend, so don't think I've forgotten you!!!
By the way...if any one has any suggestions for more games for our carnival, I would love it if you could share. Well, I'm off to bed...see you next week. I'll try to remember to take pictures of the carnival to share.
Have a great Tuesday,
