    Okay so I am making tea towels, and I going to have the day's of the week on them. So I have 7 flower sack towels, and I am using fabric pens to outline a iron on transfer pattern. Each towel has a little dutch girl doing a different task each day.

    But here is what I want to know. When I was little I knew that each day had a color associated with the day. It's like I know that the number 8 is black, and I think the the number 5 is pink. Unfortunately I have gotten to old to remember what color goes with each day. So if anyone can help I would appreciate it immensely.

    I shouldn't have used my left brain so much. My right brain has just been under used for sometime now. [​IMG]

    I also know that there really aren't any rules for this kind of thing. But I would love to know this kind of thing again.

    I did some Google searches and it looks like this is a Thai tradition. According to Wikipedia:

    Sunday-----red

    Monday------Yellow

    Tuesday----pink

    Wednesday----green

    Thursday-----orange

    Friday-----blue

    Saturday------purple

    Thank you so much. I should have Googled it myself.
    This list is the one I remembered from child hood.

    I got busy with the first towel, but I found that I need to go back to store for some extra colors. I didn't get a flesh color, or a light brown. So far I really like the fabric pens I bought at the University Book Store. The store is a 100 mile round trip from home. Uf da!!!!
