Colourlovers.com -- http://www.colourlovers.com/
-- is a great site to browse for sewing and craft inspiration. It bills itself as a "creative community" where people share colors, palettes and patterns; it also covers recent color trends (find out the colors that dominate this fall's advertising!) and showcases every kind of colorful object you could imagine. Users have contributed more than a million different patterns, many amazing, as well as close to one and a half million different palettes. There is a great crafts section that offers both palettes and patterns for potential crafts projects; check out especially http://www.colourlovers.com/craft/trends/handmade
, which features gorgeous photos of craft pieces, each with its own custom palette of colors. For those of us who can't always distinguish sage from olive green, colourlovers.com is like finding signposts in the wilderness. Check it out!
