Ladybug Embroidery Project Part One



I selected this little ladybug and flowers motif from my Ladybug Embroidery Pattern and I am getting ready to stitch it up. 

This is a sweet little motif with a lot of room for interesting stitches.  I am going to challenge myself to use as large a variety as possible!


 I have transferred the pattern to my fabric with a water soluble marker.  {You can read about my methods for transferring motifs to fabric here}


Now I am selecting my color palette.  I think I will go with red and black for the ladybug and maybe some yellow and cool blues for the flowers?



I will be sure to post my progress!

Hi - Love your designs. Can I ask what the color wheel is? Have you posted about it before?

:) Thank you Darlene! I have a feeling the Double Knot Stitch will be showing up!
Hi The Stitch Up - Thank you! Yes - I love this color wheel, I refer to it all the time when I am working on color combinations. I bought it several years ago at a book store. The company that makes this is www.thecolorwheelcompany.com
I have posted about this color wheel - here: http://www.bigbgsd.blogspot.com/2010/07/color-my-new-color-wheel.html
