Today’s video features a beautiful fuschia and yellow colour combination. This is one of three colours in our new fall collection, Colour #84. I may have mentioned this before, but Colour #84 is a colour different from your traditional fall colours. Rather than the deep reds and browns that echo the turning of leaves, this colour is inspired by the gorgeous, fall sunsets that you see on a crisp and cool day.
Colour #84 is a blend of golden yellow, berry red and fuchsia. It works beautifully with Colour #83 (also part of our fall collection), combining blue, fuchsia and berry red. I have some samples coming up this month on the blog showcasing these colours, so check back!
In terms of other colour combinations, Colour #84 would work well with various pinks or perhaps some muted reds and various yellows. Don’t forget to check your stash; I’m sure you will find some colours that work well to create a palette.
More about this fuschia and yellow colour combination
In the video, I am stitching a flying cross stitch on an 18-count mono canvas using a size 5 Perle cotton.
In my opinion, stitching a sample of any colour combination is beneficial to provide a “visual” of how the colour blend appears when stitched.
For reference, you will find the stitch in the Stitches Book Volume One by Ruth Schmuff and Kathy Holicky. These books are ones that I like to use for my stitch samples as the diagrams are very easy to follow.
I hope you enjoy the video, and please visit the shop to enjoy more of our colour variations for your next needlework project.
