Ready to pull off the board and be steamed!

Painting the shell.

We had a great afternoon for painting – not too hot, a little cloudy and a little sunny!  I used Procion Dyes.  The colours were Fuchsia, Shamrock, Lemon Drop and Violet – I just had to sneak a little purple in there somewhere – just on the little fringe edges – they really reminded me of the Lavender tassels.

The pieces are now drying.  Hopefully by tomorrow I will be able to start to put them together.  The fuchsia may be a little red.  I’ll know for sure once the pieces have dried.  Otherwise I am very happy with the colours.  I followed the KISS principle this time, so unlike me.  I kept the colour choices minimal and stuck to my original plan.  I think that it may have worked!

Happy Knitting
