Sunday Samples

I keep changing my mind on the color scheme for the spokes stool. My most recent leaning is to use a split complementary of yellow green, violet, and yellow oranges. My original idea involved using salmon with red violets and a myrtle green. Either way I'll need to do some dying! But really, I'm pretty sure I'll be changing my mind again before I finish.

I'm making a punch needle embroidery wrist band as an experiment. It's about 1 inch wide. My plan is to use a small toggle clasp for the fastening and attach the embroidery to silk ribbon for the inside backing. Now I'm trying to find a store with nice silk ribbon but may have to go the online route. I'm pretty happy with it so far, but I'm thinking a wider 2 inch band would be cool.

I can't wait to see the finished wrist band, Betsey. What a cool idea! And i think a wider one would be nice, too.
