Help needed


I'm trying to kit up a blackwork sampler that I want to make for my Ruby wedding in 2011. Yes I know it's a long time off but if I don't plan it now it will never get done.

I have the chart from Carol Leather see

I thought of red fabby with white/off white/pale pink silk floss. Anyone any ideas?

It's a lovely pattern Sheila. How about pale pink fabric with dark red thread?

Sounds like the same colour combination I did for Andrew's Dragon. That looked good.

I always think of red for ruby, but what about the colours of the flowers you had in your wedding bouquet? would that work?

Flowers no good, I had wanted orchids which I was promised by the florist but the let me down and gave me freesias instead.I only have one colour picture from my wedding as we saved costs by having black and white, in 1971 we had no money! Thanks anyway

No ideas for colours (not my strong point) but I love the design you've chosen. You've been so busy since my last visit! :0)
