Perfect Palette

Happy Spring! Hyacinths and rhododendron blooms are some of my favorite shades of purple. Color is one of those things by which people are baffled. I am often asked for advice on color sense and combinations. If you're stuck, take a look outside. There are no mistakes in nature - my dear mother taught me that when I was young. She was right, and it has always stuck with me.

Embroidery Bug

I have been bitten by the embroidery bug! Here is a teaser of an original embroidery design that I am stitching. It is an interesting experiment, and it is likely to endure some edits and changes before the final result, but it is a wonderful learning process! I have been cross stitching and embroidering for years and practically have every DMC floss color. But a renewed interest has me soaking up tips from books, magazines and other talented stitchers (Thank you Edye!) This is a new venture and it is an exciting challenge! I hope you will weigh in your thoughts and tips as well.

P.S. Are you wondering about those red lines all over my stitchery? They come
right out when you apply heat! Yet another reason I am thankful to live in
this age of technology and convenience.
