In Search of the perfect peach





Isn't it funny how we fight change...


Only to find out that change always leads to new discoveries.

I have been designing fabric with the same colors for several years now.  It would take me moments to find my perfect peach color to design fabric.



Spoonflower recently introduced some wonderful new vibrant colors.  I was concerned I couldn't find the perfect peach color I had used on my fabric designs before.  I fought the idea of changing some of my fabric colors, and took a while before I was ready to do the work.  Then I learned a wonderful life lesson.

As I followed a journey to finding the perfect peach color, in the process it led me to discovering about FIFTEEN new favorite colors in the "peach" family.

Now I have so many more lovely shades of peach to design with, I am thrilled.






I guess when we embrace change, it can lead to the magic in life.

Your words and those that you quoted were exactly what I needed today! I need courage and strength to make some changes in my life. Thanks so much for sharing.♥♫

The new colors are beautiful, but definitely not my colors. It's so good that God made each of us so different. It would be such a boring color scheme otherwise...
Hugs to you my sweet friend!

Peach is the universal color, isn't it? Everyone looks good wearing it; every room looks attractive painted in it; yet it makes people want to eat. I had a classroom painted in various shades of peach for over 12 years. I gained some weight as I recall.

Yes, I'm being silly. Change is good, much like the way we learn to enjoy a new food because we just go ahead and try it. See? I just can't leave the food alone.

The most change I've had is having to purchase new speakers for the computer and now all the music sounds tinny. Sigh. Obviously, I was able to afford a better set in a former time.

How's the waiting going?

I have been forcing myself to do artwork out of my comfort zone. Sometimes I am surprised to see that I really like things I had previously avoided. Your color scheme and designs are lovely.

Peach is a color. I can identify with. You see I cannot wear pink as my skin is too warm and so I am always looking for that illusive peach that does not have blue undertones in it but rather. Brown undertone to give this old girl a rosy fresh look. I do love all your photos and fabric swatches. Valerie
