I've been shopping on IG again ...

I also visited one of my favourite online shops too ..

I love buying fabrics from my LQS as well ... but they don't always have the pre-cuts I'm after and my three year old with sticky fingers would rather be at a park. So online shops do come in handy - especially if you don't need the fabric right away. Although the service I've had this week in regards to quick postage has been amazing!
The only thing that bugs me about shopping online is that I really wish that more online shops would show a picture of the fabrics they are offering in natural light.
Am I the only one that finds it difficult to determine the exact shade/colour when shopping online?
Why does that pastel mint green fabric on one site look aqua on another site? A photo of the fabric taken in natural light would help me determine the colour better, especially when the name of the colour in the description is something arty-farty like "Misty Cloud".
So here's a little plea to the online shops out there ... I know you're flat out like a lizard drinking ... but please. oh. please ... display a picture of the fabric photographed in natural light, instead of (or as well as) the usual digital fabric swatch. It would really help!
PS I have no affiliation with the stores mentioned in this post ... I just like shopping there :)
