Tell you what....I'll let my glass know that you care, maybe you could be surrogate custodians? In the meantime - it's all MINE!!

Your suggestions above, would need a site all of it's own - a mamouth task and my own photography skills are not up to it, but got to admit it would be brilliant.

I probably didn't make myself terribly clear, but I was just thinking of a single 'swatch' photo of every colour, but I wasn't advocating every colour with every pattern, which I agree would be a nightmare! :shock:

Yes, I understand what you mean David, but in the meantime, this will have to suffice.

As David Hier suggested above, it may be worthwhile to make this into a "sticky" for future easy reference, as this posting will soon get lost under the deluge of new messages.

N.B. there is a "glich" or two in the colour reference, nothing serious, but will be put right ASAP.  Just a typographical error!! Otherwise it is as accurate as can be .

Thanks for this, Emmi! It's a fantastic reference.

For me, the most troublesome problem is with distinguishing the various shades of blue. The others *seem* to be easier. I think I have swans in arctic blue, sapphire blue and now sky blue, but I'm just not sure.

How much variability was there between the individual batches, I wonder? Were they fairly consistent?

All the best,
Cathy

OK Emmi, something to consider for later.

I imagine Frank will want to archive this.
