Floss Toss Help


My silk order came today - don't you just love that quick service? - and the colors are so great, that really didn't change my opinion of the two that were my favorites - and yours as well. Do you still agree with your first impression? These are scans, but if you click on the picture, you get a better idea of the fabric colors.

I've joined a new cross stitch SAL, Quaker Blues, at MyNiftyNeedle (click on this link to see the original sample). I've decided to do my first project using silk threads, and they're ordered and on the way from Vikki at Hand-Dyed Fibers. What I did was pull DMC colors to choose my fabric, but I'm having a quandary. So if you will, leave me a comment telling me which is your favorite.

  1. From your photos, I like Bay Leaf, or if that is too green the the lt. blue. Chamois is very interesting. Guess it would depend on what you're stitching.

  2. It's a full house of Bay Leaf!!! I think it looks more like a true Quaker background than the others, and enhances your beautiful thread choices, too.

  3. I'm going to different, I like the olive, it really makes the blues sing

  4. I like the way chamois sets off the blues!

  5. I like the bay leaf.

  6. I really like the Bay Leaf, but Christine is right - the deep olive really makes the blues pop!

  7. At first I was leaning toward the Bay Leaf, but after enlarging the pics I think I like the Deep Olive better.
