A few weeks ago, I commented on this design by Valori Wells on her blog I believe. Well she responded by asking if I wanted one....of course! Thank You! Then she asked what color I wanted it in/on as she had done many samples. I left that up to her. Little did I know she would send me a whole HALF of a yard of this!! The fabric is Essex Linen by Robert Kaufman a linen and cotton blend. It did run a bit so wash it first! And the hand is improved, of course, with the sizing gone.
Ashley mentioned toning the green down a bit, so that is what I did. First with coffee grounds, which washed out because I didn't leave it long enough. Smelled good though. I have a container of RIT Cocoa Brown color, so I made up a dropppp of that in water. Didn't need to leave the fabric in long this time! Of course I experimented with splotches...more on that idea later.
Now that this has been gifted, I can show it off. This is by my daughter Ashley. A Wolf, a Moon, and a hill to stand on. The wolf is wool 'striped' yarn, which accounts for the varied coloring, and is worked on needlepoint canvas, as are the rock 'beads'. The moon is a wire wrapped button.
↓I came across this palette on Instagram and fell for it.
Did the usual "paint" program color picker.
I think the yarn is Wool Of The Andes Tweed Yarn
