Embroidery Color Wheel Details
Well I’m so flattered that you all love my color wheel! I’ve worked on it here and there over the course of a month – it could be done faster, but I was mulling over options and need time to make decisions. Enough of you asked about the dmc numbers so I thought I would share.
I put the star with the colors I felt were directly from the color wheel, and I’m thinking my next color wheel maybe with those 12. Oh, and there’s 26 colors here, it would be easier to eliminate 2 and have a easy, even number to work into the circle. I found a dmc color chart, if you would like to see the colors. I know there’s a few esty sellers letting you select colors of floss, be sure to change the search to “supplies” and they will pop right up for you.
My friend Cassie worked with some Cosmo threads recently, and loved them! They are over a dollar a skein, but Cassie seems to think it’s worth the extra cost. She sent me a link for a shop selling them in the US – if you love stitching it may be worth trying. I had a few frustrating knots and nests in my thread while working the color wheel, Cassie loves how smooth the Cosmo threads are, and I’m going to give them a try at some point!
So who wants to stitch with me!? I have a 12″ hoop and just enough white fabric to fill it :) We will keep it informal and fun – I don’t have anything to giveaway, but maybe a button for your blog if you insist. I’ll share my design thought process in the coming weeks.
