I love they grey sky and the ?? tawny chartreuse ?? What are those colors? Honey and wheat and greenish beige. I dont' know what they are called, but they sure are relaxing. They are the colors of the end of summer.

The colors are dry. They are strange. They are hot and cool at the same time, aren't they? I love those colors! I have been so inspired by color, but have never been interested in fabric dying. I have been pondering dying my own threads, and that gets me excited. Then last night while picking out frames and matting form my embroidery, I spied this on a discount rack!!!
|just waiting for color!|
It comes with 36 read-to-dye skeins plus red, yellow, and blue dye powders in bottles. I will try to mix colors to get more natural looks, and most likely I'll save some skeins for natural dyes from my kitchen or garden. Not bad for under $8! I will let you know how it goes! : )
As for Friday Finishes, this is now matted and framed and oh so beautiful! I hope she likes it. ; )

See you later!
I like to consider September as late summer because the days are still so hot. I am linking to Stitched in Color's Celebrate Color post! Everyone is adding their September palettes there if you would like to see! : )
