I have been playing around with my Patchwork Sampler and colours and i need i think to buy a green or two..
looking at the pic below the colours used are top left hand corner
Colourwash silk in African Sunset, next to that VC silk in cherry blossom , next row down Colour streams Purple Genie and below that Gloriana Periwinkle ( which is stunning IRL), and the little motifs below the African sunset are in VC Dark Wisteria
there is a strip of the design runs down from the Cherry blossom past /through the purple genie and i think it needs a green to set it off nicely. I have some purples with green through them but they don’t look right to me and annoyinly i can’t find a VC one i want .. annoying cos i do have a list of VC ones to buy atm..so i am hunting greens minty greens and aqua greens..of course the bestest ones i can see are all the spensive ones..
Next, i love this Warrior Chick from Nicole Cadet, The Black Guard i like the haughty expression on her face and the way she holds herself, and just cos i clicked on the next link on the page, mainly because it said Amythesta Mermaid i really like her too
did i mention how much i liked Periwinkle from Gloriana… it is YUMMY i want to do a whole sampler of Periwinkle.. on a really dark fabric.. YUMMMMMM
edited to add..
i remembered the THINK i wanted to talk about the other day..i read about this on the Vikki Clayton forum..bad evil enabling place
and i would love to brave enough to preorder price unknown.. but i could spend my entire christmas club money on a book if i did that
i soo want to make some.. knitted silk… perfect..droolworthy infact
oh and Nicki you were meant to say silly girl why would you want to stitch a patchwork bag.. not start making sounds like it was a good idea.. i am more than capable of distracting myself without your voice in my head….
