Making color

Today I worked on coloring the drawing I finished yesterday. Which is to say, planning the colors I'll use in the embroidery. I've found that a terrific time waster is matching DMC floss colors to Prismacolor pencil colors, and vice versa. This can result in excessive trips back and forth between Lee's, Daytona, Pearl, Dick Blick, and P&S. All the purchases are small, so I don't feel awful about spending a ton of money.

The drawing is going to Karen as part of an embroidery kit, if I ever get my act together and mail it, and I want it to be a suprise, but I'll share the colors.

I had fairy tales in mind when I chose the palette, and I think I succeeded, but only time (and Karen) will tell.
