Yesterday was spent trying to bring together my colourway for the next cyberclass. I am going to stitch this one on congress cloth to keep the size down from meganormous the kilonormus. The first thread to chose was the overdye. In the pot came Dinky Dyes "Daydream" in cool shades of green, purple and blue, then the trouble started trying to find a light,medium and dark shade of each of the overdye colours. The house looked like it had been overrun by a hoard of marauding 3 year olds at a birthday party. After digging myself out of the boxes and bags of threads to be considered here is the end result.

From Molehill to Mountain by Pam Gardner
Cyberclass through Scarlett Thread
I have wisely posted a photo on the group board to get the okay from Pam Gardner just to make sure I haven't made any totally useless colour decisions. Friends will not be surprised by my colour choices they are "Carol colours". Oh well, it hard to break out of the comfort zone.
Thank you for all your kind comments about Eureka I always enjoy Jean Hilton's designs and there are a few more in the workroom awaiting attention.
