I dream in color....

but my color palette may differ from yours...

my favorites are
dark, moody blacks...
burnt pumpkins...
bone whites...
acid greens...
parchment...
mourning dove greys....


As a child, I would re-arrange my crayola box of 64 colors...
grouped by "Halloween Colors"!!!
(i never really used the pinks and purples, or sky blues and reds)
and I would draw & color all of my creations using my little palette.

I went to a favorite haunt of mine yesterday,
Cottonwood Quilt Shop
located in Charlottesville, VA.
where they offer a huge selection of wonderful cottons, homespuns and linens...

I came home with the ones you see pictured above,
but of course,
last night I was dreaming of the ones I didn't choose...
I think I'll be haunting them again today!
these will be used to finish my needlepunch and sampler Halloween Offerings!!
**Blessed be**
