colors inspired by summer
Here we are, in the middle of summer, and it's about time I pick some DMC embroidery colors to go with the season! These color combos are inspired by summer classics, as well as some patterns that are coming to the blog next week! When I go through my stash (DMC has been super kind to me in supporting my habit!), I like to name the palettes that I create. Sometimes they have silly names, but silly works.
Above, we have "Impossible Tomorrow." They aren't truly neon, but they are as close to neon as you can get with the standard cotton floss, which makes them less expensive, and easier to stitch with! EDITED: The second color from the left should be 741. Sorry about that!
"Super Snowcone." I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure that a snowcone with these colors would be pretty tasty!
Above is "Just Beachy", because when August comes, I think beach. I don't actually go to the beach, I just think it goes with August.
These colors remind me of Rosie the Riveter, but I named the grouping "Waterloo". It'll make more sense next week!
Some summer colors feel like fall may creep in at any moment, but these reminded me of some "Puppet Pals" which are good any time of the year!
How about an "Idea Garden"? Pretty bright, huh? Get it? Bright idea? Ha!
And finally, "Iced Tea with Lemon". I'll take my tea with or without lemon, so long as there's no sugar in it! I've tried to like sweet tea, but I just can't get used to it.
Sometimes I use these colors to stitch, sometimes I just admire them. How about you? What might you stitch with one of these sets of floss shades?
PS: I try to keep the colors accurate, but monitors differ. Trust me, the colors are always best when you have them in your hands, and threaded in your needle!
