26 New Colors for the 1840 Sampler Floss Line

Busy once again.....that's nothing new....I have 26 colors put on cards for the 1840 Sampler Floss line. Lots of subtle variegation in most of them. A couple friends asked me to keep some of the soft antique colors without a lot of variegation. I didn't do drastic variegation in these new colors. Nice antique-looking color changes are what I strived for.
I did reds with light to dark and brownish tones added on some, same to the plum colors. Greens run from dark with darker green, celery with several shades, sage(some with golden highlights), aqua, midnight dark blues....nutmeg, buttercream, etc. These will be available in my ebay store tomorrow. I have to finish putting the names on the tags.

I hope you can see the nice color changes in these photos. I do plan on getting a new camera soon. I just can't capture the true colors in my photos. Especially on linen....those colors are always hard to capture.
It is raining today so I am taking a break from dyeing floss. When it clears later this week I will be back to the dye pot as I want to add quite a few more colors to the line.
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!
