signature colors

full palette
One of my goals for the year was to create a signature color palette. Back in February, I chose colors, and have been working primarily within those 23 colors. But when it came to choosing floss colors, I never actually decided on the shades that I wanted to be using.
colors - full
Yesterday my sister and I sorted through all of my floss, and found the colors that were just right. I'm proud to say that when I imported the photos and placed my color samples (from February) over them, they are a near perfect match! I think I've gotten to know these shades!

This is what each grouping of colors looks like, along with their DMC numbers:
colors - light
colors - bright
colors - deep


  1. Absolutely love your choice!!!

  2. i love the colors you've chosen here. I use medium to dark brown a lot...which is your favorite floss color in that shade?

  3. Kris, I usually use DMC 838 and 839

  4. These are absolutely cute! Awesome pick!

  5. great colors! I look forward to a time when I can define a signature palette; I have been embroidering (again) for less than a year, so I am still experimenting at this point. Thanks for sharing ~ you are so inspiring!

  6. I use to make friendship bracelets out of this stuff. You're making me miss my collection of beautiful thread! That first pastel palette is my fave.
