Color me: HAPPY !!


I adore my Gentle Art Sampler Threads
(otherwise known as GAST)
and as a designer, come to use a certain palette
again & again...
here are my favorite colors, & the ones used mostly in my patterns:
Dried Thyme
Pine
Avocado
Buckeye Scarlet
Gold Leaf
Summer Meadow
Grecian Gold
Cinnamon
Porcelain
Pebble
Black Crow
Soot
Dark Chocolate
Flax
Fudge Ripple
I do add or subtract colors for certain seasons, holidays, etc...
BUT
these are the foundation for my designs...
visit your local Needlwork Shop and stock up today!!

Hoping you all have a colorful day
... spent working on your work-in-progress!!
(WIP)

Blessings from the Farm,
Lori

Love the colors! I love hand dyed threads! I have to drive 30 minutes to get to a needleworks shop that sells it tho'.
I'm hoping to get a day to just sit and stitch soon! I think over the past few weeks I've gotten maybe a total of 15 minutes to stitch on the Lancaster Co. sampler!
