Getting Organized

Over the last six months I've run many swatch tests combining primary dye hues in varying proportions. Until now, I've just been storing them in a big pile in a drawer. Yesterday I decided I really wanted to get these swatches organized, to make it easier for me to flip through them and combine them together to create unique palettes.

I cut my swatches to 5" by 8" and using spray adhesive glued them to same size index cards.  Now they are easier to look through and store. I have them stored in a file box.

It just occurred to me that these fabric cards are also easier to mail than loose fabric and could easily be mailed. Hmm. I'm thinking about how to design a swatch loaner program.....more ruminating to come!
