Cold weather and some new floss

Happy 2013 -  I hope your year is off to a wonderful start!  Mine is starting out with embroidery :)
I just bought some new embroidery floss.  I picked up two each of a few of my favorite colors:


I also found these two colors, which are new to me. They are dmc #3032 {the sage green one} and dmc #3824 {the coral one}.  I had never seen these two colors.  I have a sage green already that I love using, it is dmc #611 but this #3032 is much lighter and has a silvery look to it.  These are both really pretty and I am looking forward to using them.


Speaking of a silvery look, it is a bit chilly here today - I had to capture the beautiful sight of the frost on these little maple leaves:


Brrr...!
