I know it’s late winter here on the coast but I’m thinking of fall stitching today, using Colour #165 from last year’s fall collection. While this is an deal colour combination for fall stitching, I feel it could be used in any seasonal palette of your choice.
Colour #165 is a blend of red, yellow, blue and rust. Since this colour combination has so many different colours, you have endless choices in creating a palette.
Fall Stitching – Cross Stitch Using Colour #165
Our sample is stitched using one strand of floss on 40 count off white linen and measures about 2 inches. The design is from the pattern Paradigm Lost by Long Dog Samplers.
While we are displaying a cross-stitch sample, remember you could use this colour in any of your needlework. Colour #165 is offered in three sizes of Perle cotton and 6-strand cotton floss.
If you want to add colours to create a palette, why not start by drawing colours directly from the blue and yellow found in Colour #165. Add a few muted red and even brown shades. Depending on the pattern or theme of your project, I would recommend using more yellow to give it some pop, or less for a more muted result.
