Rainbow Ruminatons progress

Original in DInky Dyes by my model stitcher in 2016
"Rainbow Ruminations"
Version by my model stitcher - mix flosses in 2018
It was just about two years ago when a friend of mine asked when this design would be available. Now it is finally out as a SAL.  Some folks are using their own color choices, some are using my suggested key.
Rainbow Ruminations is a non-mystery mix of cross stitch with black work floral motifs and borders.  It is a companion to the other 7 in the monochrome series, listed at my Etsy shop.  Read all the details  right here Rainbow Ruminations uses Dinky Dyes and a DMC cross reference.
The Dinky Dyes variegated floss is called Toni’s Texas Tea #188 and you get a load of pretty colors.  It reminds me of a field of wildflowers – or perhaps because the name of the floss involves tea, the recipe might involve cherries, peaches, limes, oranges and all kinds of fruity delight.  I wonder!  So this is just a little taste.  In addition are some solid colors to compliment the variegated. We include a DMC cross reference.
