A few months ago I reached into my stash for an new project and picked out First Step by Genny Morrow.
You need a light, medium and dark of four colors. I was in the middle of a color class so I picked a tetrad of yellow, violet, blue and orange. This, for me, is unusual - no greens! But, the colors do illustrate many of the concepts from the color class and it was an interesting exercise.
I especially enjoyed the squares that where the same stitch but with different colorways. They all look so different.
When I was about a week into the project I was having fun and happened to be by a needlework store. So, I bought a second canvas and picked out colors for a second. This time colors I felt more comfortable with.
By now, I'm ready for something new but am stuck working another one. Note to self: no matter how much fun you are having, the second one won't be as fun.
This time I used earth tones and my favorite colors: sea, sand, forest and mountains.
Once again, I find myself having fun watching how different this one is turning out. Still, I'm not looking forward to the outer row.
