Fancey ~ I love that name, don’t you?

This Pineberry Lane design, Fancey Blackett ~ The Gathering Basket, simply called to me, and so I made a start on it this morning. I’m not doing any color planning, just picking as I go.

So far, I’ve used Valdani perle cotton size 12 in colors H 212 for Fancey’s hat, dress, and boots, and 6 for her face, hand and legs. The way the H 212 punches up in vertical or horizontal stripes, (depending on the direction one punches) means I can use just the one floss for both the body of the dress and the sleeve. I won’t need to outline the sleeve or use a different color for the sleeve, unless I want to!

P 9, my new favorite brown, is Fancey’s choice for her hair, and green perle tweed works nicely for her gathering basket.

The very last of my green tweed ~ time to order more! ~ I used for the four large flower centers.

Now, it’s time to ponder a while, look through my Valdani and decide which color to thread my needle with next!
