As I was making my mini for the blog hop on Wednesday, I realised I was using only solids, which, other than for the For The Love Of Solids swap earlier in the year, I’ve never really done before.  I actually collected a good array of solids last summer from an etsy shop that was closing down, as well as having collected some more along the way for other projects.  

I don’t know what it is that means I don’t reach for them more, maybe too much choice?  Maybe not enough co-ordinating selections?  I’m not sure, but I know I really need to get some orange in there.  And more of a range of blues, and maybe purples.  I don’t know though, what do you think?  What are your go to solid colours (feel free to tell me about the neutrals too, but I’d really love to know more colours!)  Now I have a Kona colour card I can actually check what I have (although the original set I bought all had labels on them, there have been ones since that I have no clue about) and I can actually see what you’re talking about too :oD
