This is the first in what I hope will be an occasional series of posts of color palettes to inspire cross-stitch, embroidery, and other needlework projects. There will be two parts to this. Today I am featuring the first color palette. Then, later in the week I will share a free cross-stitch pattern using colors from the featured palette.
I hope this will be fun. It gives me a chance to practice my photography, which I am really, really trying to improve this year. And, I get to design, stitch, and share some fun, simple cross-stitch patterns.
Winter can seem like a drab time of year for color. But, this color palette is inspired by the blues that appear at dusk in wintertime.
All of that glaring white snow fades into dusty shades of blue as the sun goes down.
This Winter Needlework Palette use DMC threads. The threads used are:
DMC# Color Name
762 Very Lt Pearl Grey
3747 Very Lt Blue Violet
3840 Lt Lavender Blue
3325 Lt Baby Blue
3807 Cornflower Blue
Later this week I will share a simple cross-stitch pattern inspired by this winter color palette. Let me know what you think in the comments, and stay tuned!
