Here is some of the wool used in the flower. The gold on the left is the outline, the rust is the flower petals. I forgot to include the gold line in the petal. The medium brown is the outline of the flower center and the lime green plaid with the pink is the flower center.
I used a dark green and black houndstooth for the background and the narrow gold line is the same gold as the outline of the flower. I will continue the border with the green and black houndstooth.
(too be continued!)
Aren't the colors pretty! I chose these colors in the fall when the leaves were shades of orange, gold and red. As I was sitting out back in the screened in porch I could look up and see the exact same shades in the trees around me. Now it is all covered in white fluffy stuff!
