Gentle Friends, I decided to jump right in with a 2021 SAL from over at Modern Folk Embroidery. I had thought I wrapped my head around the choice of floss colours, but once I got going it was a little less clear... so here's a snaperoo of where I left off last night...
... the piece is called "The Fruits of Plenty" and each section releases on the first of the month throughout the year. You can stitch this either monochromatically or duo-chromatically, I chose a two colour variation. I'm stitching it on 40ct "Moonglow" from PTP and thought I was going to use "Wavy Navy" from CC and "Corn Flower" from GAST. Well, I'm sticking to Wavy Navy (I do love this black/blue floss) but am not so hot with the "Cornflower". I stitched a bit in the upper left corner and don't really like it too much so I pulled the other 12 shades of light blue overdyed flosses I have from stash to figure something else out. After eliminating more than half of them for various reason I narrowed the field to "Morning Glory" from GAST. It's a very pale blue shade that I was looking for and think it might just work... there are a couple of other choices I have on hold back but let me get in a bit of "Morning glory" to try... the little bit I have left is just enough of a taste to see it but not enough to jump in with stitching... I am very happy with the Moonglow linen, it has just enough of a yellow cast to it that sort makes the dark blue really pop, the snap above sucks but IRL it works all over the place!!
There you go sports fans. BTW go check out Jacob's Floss Tube it's very interesting and informative. Stay Safe!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
