I’m about to get back to work, but I did spend some time last night and this morning sewing. I’m sewing up all the blue parts of the SWAP. You do this so as to avoid changing thread colors and all. Once the blue is all done, I’ll move on to the mushroom shade.

Here are my two basic colors:

I have some other shades of the same colors around, but these are the basics, which will provide the main pieces of the SWAP.

I’m thinking about accent colors, though.

I have some linen in this red. What about a camp shirt this color? Would it work nicely, or would it be too primary?

There’s also this lavender:

Fairly nice, right? Again, I’ve got some linen in that shade.

I also have some heavier linen in aqua:

I could add another jacket.

    I vote for the lavender, too!

    The red feels bright, and too much of a jolt with the other two pastels, and the soft green blends in too much. The lavender lends a little zing without being TOO look-at-me!

    Besides, lavender is a color that is flattering to almost every complexion. It’s almost like makeup. The same goes for a light blue like that.
