CHORUS OF COLOURS!
My CHORUS OF COLOURS series will focus on a selection of colours centered around one of my colour combinations that would 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.
My focus colour today is #133 which I introduced several years ago. This is a blend of burgundy/reds with moss green. My inspiration when dyeing this was Christmas so I went with the traditional red and green but added a bit of burgundy in there for some interest.
For my CHORUS OF COLOURS today I have chosen to replicate the colours in #133 with the red and green theme. I combined colour #133 with two of my size 5 perle cotton solid trios, a Grass Green Trio and Red #8 which is a reddish/pink. I have also added another of my overdyes, colour #127 which is a gorgeous blend of greens. For some seasonal sparkle, how about Kreinik #8 braid, colour #9 and Kreinik #8 braid, colour #7.
You have a choice with the colour options to use only greens combined with #133 or only reds. I can envision lovely Christmas ornaments especially with the addition of some Kreinik #8 braid OR perhaps some Kreinik 1/16″ ribbon.
You can find all the colours in my shop. Have a great weekend and I hope I have provided you with a little seasonal inspiration 🙂
