Months ago I picked up a few yards of Moda's Marbles Pacific Blue to coordinate with a jelly roll filled with Charisma by Chez Moi. I just the love the color...very rich and surprisingly close to the color of the Pacific Ocean for those who have never been. I guess Angie loved it too, because she bought some for a quilt she is making her brother.
While Angie and I were sewing the other night (with our great friend, Roxanne), Angie ran out of thread. I loaned her my spool that matched that the Pacific Blue fabric exactly. When she returned it, she said, "thanks for the green thread." Immediately I said, "Green? Don't you mean blue". We both shrugged our shoulders and moved on with our projects. I thought about it later and wondered why Angie thought the fabric and thread were green.
Maybe now I know the answer. I learned on Wikipedia that in many languages blue is the same word as green. Check out this detailed list of languages and how they handle blue/green.
Who knew?? I guess Angie and I were both right.
Whatever the color, enjoy today's Etsy finds!
