Color Test

W. C. Fields was right. Stupid Cat.
I had this great post with a series of photos that showed my dubious progress of selecting fabric, when Marley decided to walk on the keyboard and in a single paw swipe it was GONE.   The less brilliant version goes like this:

Cold, wet cat who hates to sit in your lap unless she's thinks you look warm and absorbent, helps herself to my lap.  I toss orange fabric on her for a color test.

Once the correct camera settings are established, the fabric looks too orange.
So I set about trying to take photos of her next to terra-cotta.  This is as good as it gets.  No modeling contract in her future.

So...Calico Cat Butlers....since I'm trying to use fabric from the stash....do I go with the orange (of which I don't think I have enough) or the terra-cotta that's under the paw?

I like the bright orange, but you said there wasn't enough. You could possibly try out doing the two oranges. The terracotta looks kind of sleepy, but that might be the kitty.
