I promised a prezzie for anyone guessing my score on the color chart quiz post– Debi guessed correctly that I scored an 8. Debi– ding ding ding– you win!!
Thanks for those of you with such confidence in my color ability! I suspect the low score less to do with my ability than it does with my good computer screen, and the ability to flip it at an angle to see the chart at somewhat of a grey scale.
While we’re discussing color, here’s a close up of one of the fabrics I dyed at Dye Day 2008:
In other news, the president of the PTA asked if I would make some Tee Bags out of some incorrectly screen school tee shirts. I made 40 bags, and some of the 6th graders will be hawking them (hopefully they will be more polite than silly…) at Back to School Night. The proceeds will go towards helping the 6th graders offset the cost of an upcoming field trip.
If you’re new to this blog, please check out the post titled “Tee Bags” for a photo tutorial on turning old tee shirts into shopping bags. The bags are really simple and fast to make (ahem, I just made FORTY!!) and they’re great for the farmer’s market, where bags can get kind of messy from all the leafy goodness. Just toss the tee bags in the wash, and you’re ready to go shopping again!
This fun color test was forwarded to me by Lora. It will suck up about 15 minutes of your time, and if you are at all competitive (who, me?) it will make your heart race a teeny tiny bit. Of course, if you are nutso like Vicki (in a good way! Nutso in a good way, Mrs. I-make-spreadsheets-for-my-color- dyes.) (I’m intimidated by her prowess, therefore I tease) (Love you, Vicki!) (nutso) you will make a spreadsheet and get a perfect score. All other mortals will do the best they can with their God-given monitors.
And, just in case you are at all competitive (and by you, I mean me) you will want to know that the score at the end goes from zero (perfect) to 99 (not so perfect).
And, just to add a little spice to the mix, if you take the test, and then guess MY score, I’ll send you a little prezzie! I’ll give you a hint– it’s a number between zero and 99. hahahaha! I do that hint-thing with my kids, too. Makes ‘em nutso!
NOTE: the giveaway has been given– thanks for playing!
