Linda's colors for 2011

Here is a picture of my canvas and overdyed thread for 2011. This is a bit of a departure for me as I usually choose bright jewel tones. But something about this combination just spoke to me -- and it's good for me to stretch my design muscles.

My Congress cloth is one of the new colors called Vintage. It's kind of a wine color but not quite as red but definitely not leaning toward brown. The floss is Chili Peppers by Threadworx.

Welcome, Liz. Thanks for being our first friend.

Debbie, Mary, Pat, and I have just returned from this year's retreat in Knsas City. It was soooooo much fun (and too hot, but you all know how much I don't like heat). And we are already busy working on next year's retreat. We hope to have a hotel pinned down in the next few weeks. When we do, we'll announce it so you can all start getting as excited as we always are!!

I'm already choosing my colors. I'll try to get a photo of my canvas and overdyed up soon. It ought to be a shock for everyone since I always choose bright colors. This will be a little bit different for me.
