#colorplay friday 4.1.2016

Rose Petals by Laurel Poppy and Pine

This week I decided to choose embroidery fibers.  I've really had embroidery projects on the brain lately. 

1. Bathtubstudios - Pearl 5 Cotton
2. Weeks Dye works - Azaleas
3.Yarnplayer - Embroidery floss in Neapolitan
4. Weeks Dye Works - Rose Quartz
5.PrairieGarden - Crewel Embroidery Fiber in cool blue water

I think this cross stitch quilt panel would look fabulous in these  variegated colors.

Gray was from the cathedral.
Green for the trees
Black and grey bias from the shadows on windows
