    Thank you Carsey, I did it by hand, just stem stitch, with two strands of DMC embroidery cotton/floss, shade 742.

    I have some ideas to suggest on different treatments by machine for those who don't want to hand stitch. I will be taking some pics soon.

    I had my colors done too, and yes, it was about 30 years ago. 80% of people are Winters/Summers. I am an Autumn/Spring (There is usually some cross-over). But I am doing my AOTH in black.

    My LQS owner doesn't like Kona black, she carries Maywood Studios black. It is a double-dyed, true Amish black that doesn't run or bleed, and it feels SO good! It is really beautiful, and I recommend you try it. See if your LQS will order some for you.
    Sounds nice Gai, but I already have my Kona, so I will stick with that now.

    Ladies,
    did you know you can take the season test online? Check it out here: http://www.colormebeautiful.com/seasons/index.html

    I am straight Autumn, which doesn't surprise me, I do love oranges, greens, browns and yellows, love fall colors, but really there isn't a color I don't like, well, except white maybe.

    Oh my, Gai, was that 30 years ago... let's see 2011-1978=eeeks! 33 years ago. Oh dear, I had just found out I was pregnant with my 4th baby (my 2nd daughter) and now she just had her 4th in December 2010! My, how time does fly. LOL oh, and I am a winter. I bet I have that color swatch samples someplace buried around here. Or, I tossed it never thinking I could use it in quilting in 2011. LOL

    :lol:

    Candi, according to that test I am a Spring! I think I knew that, but hadn't thought about it for a long time, and now lots of people are talking about their colors!

    ButterflySpain (not sure I have caught your first name yet, sorry!), watermelon, to me depends on which variety you are growing... LOL We grow watermelons at our farm and some are more pink or red than others. To me a watermelon is near salmon but maybe with more pink or red in it, kind of a softer color than salmon or red. Not sure that helps you. I believe Spring is my secondary season and I love the colors in that line also. :-D

    Candi, Thanks for posting the link! I love it, our color choices extend from our clothes to our homes to our quilting!!!

    Elle, so you are a Spring too, no wonder I love your lemon yellow with batiks in pinks and purples, they are so pretty to me! :D
