The color red has been catching my eye, lately, so when I saw this design from Lori Brechlin I knew it was my next project.
The neutral colors Lori chose for the border and central motif made the red seem like an extension of said neutrals, at least to my mind.
Ellis helped me throughout this project, didn’t you Ellis?
Here are the colors I chose for my Tulip:
These are all Valdani #12 perle cotton which I punched using the lowest setting (#1) on my Cameo needle. From left to right they are:
5 ~ ecru
h205 ~ ancient gold
p5 ~ tarnished gold
pt2 ~ green twisted tweed
160 ~ light maroon
o510 ~ terracotta twist
What do you think of the colors “I” chose, Ellie?
I made it into a pillow stuffed with crushed walnut shells. Here’s the back.
So, you see, with a lot of help from Ellis I’m able to start and finish a project!
