Don't be afraid of color!

This month is national sewing month, and that  had me thinking about stepping out of our comfort zones and trying something we wouldn't normally do. I wanted to share some embroidery that is BOLD in the color choices. I think it is a nice change from the normal and maybe will get you all thinking next time you go a choos'n colors for a project.

Such a good looking rooster (Aunt Martha's 3906 Farmyard Animals) and the purple is unexpected, but nice. I like it!

More purple (shear coincidence) on this Sunbonnet gal. Usually you would think of "country" colors for this duo, but I think the bold colors are exciting and more interesting. This one is from Aunt Martha's pattern #3946 Sunbonnet Mother & Daughter.
Hope this gets you inspired to try new colors (or new patterns) that you wouldn't have tried before! You can post some bold color choices of your own on our Flickr group....
We always LOVE seeing what our customers are up to!

Happy Stitching (and sewing)!
