The Grays (and a book)

Lining is ready to be inserted into the yellow jacket.  Wondering what color to wear with  yellow,  I'm thinking gray would be pretty for spring.   I found a good gray, not too dark, not too light.  I bought enough to make gray pants and a  gray jacket, too.  And a gray paisley for lining.  Gray can be very drab, so I'll have to find a way to liven it up.  



This book just kept calling me, and I answered the call.

I'm not doing a review, because Karen wrote a very, very good review, which encouraged me to buy it.

I should be able to put the lining in that jacket tomorrow.  Yay!

I have a yellow jacket all cut out, but I cannot find time to get to the sewing! Both daughters have birthdays this month. I like your idea of yellow and grey together. They make a nice transition from winter to spring. We are all ready for Spring!

Elle said...

I think grey and yellow are beautiful together!

These fabrics look great together...I want that book too ;)

Sarah C said...

Add some sage green to that mix, or some purple! Either one would add some additional pops of color!

Linda T said...

I gravitate to gray and your's will be lovely with the yellow. Great choice IMO!

Rose said...

I like your color combinations! Wendy's book is flying to me now. I wonder when I'll have time to read it. Have fun finishing your jacket.

Eugenia said...

I think that gray and yellow make a wonderful combination, very pretty and sophisticated.

Irene said...

Yellow and grey look great. You could also try yellow and navy or yellow and black. A bit higher contrast. Bet you'll find things in your closet that will work, once the jacket moves in there.

Sharon said...

I do love the gray and yellow combination.
