color combo: mum's the word

Mums 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!


  1. This may be my favorite color combination yet.

  2. I LOVE it. Thanks for sharing. Now my problem is that instead of going thru all the brown lunch bags that I have separated into #'s I go out and buy new floss to match your combo's. LOL So then I need new lunch bags to store my floss, and the problems go on and on.
    Have a great week,
