Another CHORUS OF COLOURS to finish 2016!
Just a reminder that my CHORUS OF COLOURS series will focus on a selection of colours centered around ONE of my colour combinations that work well in canvas work projects but please recognize that you could use these palettes for any needlework project of your choice. **These are my personal suggestions only and naturally there are always many different combinations that would look equally beautiful.
In celebration of Christmas, my focus colour today is colour #137. My inspiration for this was photographs of holiday decorations in turquoise, lime green and fuchsia. I seem to remember seeing a Christmas tree decorated entirely in these colours.
I have combined colour #137 with one of my size 5 perle cotton trios, fuchsia. I added “glitz” with Kreinik #8 braid colour #10 (turquoise) or Kreinik #8 braid colour #2 (fuchsia). Depending on your project you could also use Kreinik 1/16″ ribbon in a lovely fuchsia blend, colour #3.
Now to switch this up a bit you could also add colour #166 which is a bold blend of deep fuchsia and purples – GORGEOUS! I have also added Kreinik 1/16″ ribbon, colour #14 for something a wee bit different.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you Happy Holidays and all the best in 2017. I will be taking a blog break over the holidays returning to posting on Monday January 16th. In the interim the SHOP will remain OPEN just in case you want to do some stitching once your guests have returned home!
