Diana asked me, a while…. quite a while ago, for the colors I used on Lori Brechlin’s Horse On A Hill design. Here’s my finished piece…
What a FUN project this was, way back in 2012. Here’s Lori’s blog link where you just may be able to find this awesome design… click here. The above photo shows Horse on a Hill stained and aged. Below shows it in it’s “virgin”, just punched, state….
Bottom row, left to right: 5, p3, H205, P9, P6
Top row, left to right: JP11, 100, JP9, O579
Here’s what I used each for:
5 ~ for the lightest bits ~ scallops along edge, barn and fence
P3 ~ barn roof, spots on horse
H205 ~ large sunflower
P9 ~ horse, sunflower centers and a bit of the scalloped edge
P6 ~ small sunflower
JP11 ~ lighter background
100 ~ bluer background
JP9 ~ light green part of the hill
O579 ~ dark green part of the hill
These are all Valdani perle cotton #12 flosses which I used on my Cameo punch needle set at the lowest setting (#1), using two strands of each floss.
I hope this helps you, Diana, and anyone else interested in reenacting this version of Horse on a Hill!
Take care y’all!
p.s. are you ready for Santa???
