wow, you guys just inspire me so much. I personally have a fear of the color wheel. I totally understand what the colors are and why their in those spots, but picking colors just scares me to death.
Most of what I make is gifts for this person or that, I'm always so freaked out if the colors work, will they laugh at my choices. I make a lot for the neices and nephews, with them being so young I can usually pull if off with novelty fabrics for them. But the adults are what worries me.
I don't have any background in art, actually drawing and painting scare me as well. Maybe it's more of a mental block??
When I don't buy enough fabric or go looking for something to go with whatever I need, I safety pin the sample to the zipper on my purse, that way it's in my way and I don't forget about it. I can usually get really distracted in the fabric store. All that clearence just begging to come home, fabrics I just know someday would be perfect for God only knows what...
