color combo: mum's the word
Chrysanthemums are pretty when they come out in the spring, but they are such a delightful autumn flower. At least to me! I love their yellows, oranges, purple-pinks and deep burgundies! The colors sounded like a good embroidery floss color combo, so that's what inspired this weeks' palette.
The color variations that I used here is really my favorite shades of mums...and perfect for this because I think it's difficult to find exact color matches with so many beautiful flowers in the loveliest colors!
There's a nice vintage chrysanthemum pattern in the Hoop Love group on Flickr. Grab your favorite green, and you're set to stitch a few stems!
