So as I'm bargello-ing away today, thinking how fast this is all coming and how great it's going to be, it hits me: all I can see is candy corn.
|From left to right: yellows in 742, 725 and 445. Pinks in|
335, 776 and 818. Greens in 319, 367 and 368. Blues in 336, 798
and 932. Then the yellows repeat. The cream color in between each is 746. All DMC.
I think the new colors are more authentic, too, because the more I look, the more I see bright, contrasting color schemes in the original wallets. For example:
|Man's Wallet, 1770|
|Z and K Antiques|
So now I've started a little of the next color up the side and I'm liking it much, much better. I probably would have gone crazy looking at only yellow.
|Looking better already :)|
