I’m thankful to have enough floss to be able to have several choices of most any color I need or want. I started stitching the checkerboard border with one pink (left side) and wasn’t thrilled so I switched to a bit darker pink (right side) and still wasn’t thrilled.
The two purples at the bottom were kinda what I had in mind. They’re Grape Arbor and Old Purple Paint, both from The Gentle Art. Red wasn’t on my radar but I’m thinking the red might be the better choice. That’s Old Red Paint, also from The Gentle Art.
I’m going to skip down and start the next row of letters and hope some of y’all weigh in and tell me what you think.
