Lovely autumn wreath wip


I am just in the planning stages for stitching this little autumn leaf wreath. I love these floss colors, from left to right they are dmc 918, 814, 3853, 349, 680, and 699. I think these would look beautiful filling in the leaves. I also have these two:Dmc 4128 and 4130. They are the cotton pearl color variations which would give a really nice effect on autumn leaves. I wonder if mixing and matching both types would look good? Any suggestions are welcome! This pattern is sized to fit perfectly into a 6" hoop. I have transferred my pattern and have it all ready to go but I am stitching it in my 8" hoop. I personally find it easier to stitch in a medium to large size hoop. When I am finished, I am going to display this in my 6" hoop - I am so glad I have a 6" autumn-y looking wood hoop! For now I am off to experiment with color combinations.
