Yes...THAT Color!

I thought I'd share my progress 
on the 
Birds of a Feather sampler
by Blackbird Designs

 I apologize up front for the pic being so washed out!
The lighting was not cooperative today!
I'm using the NPI silks
and a lovely darkish Lakeside Linens Vintage Pearled Barley,
though you wouldn't believe it from this pic!
Trust me!

I always thought it was the REDS that
were making me ga-ga over this sampler.
The REDS and the Southwestern feel 
of the piece overall.

It was love at first sight.

But as I stitch it...
it's clear that it's more than the REDS.

You see, today I stitched 
this guy...

And then I knew.
It wasn't the REDS, after all!

When I look around me,
it's obvious.

It's THAT color...

NPI 525

Yes...THAT color!
