Summer of Colour 3 - week 4 - Pretty in Pink

Summer of Colour 3- Week 4
Charcoal Grey & Pale Pink
are this weeks colours!
These have to be my favourite colour combo so far ;)
 ...and I'm still stitching!!!
(If you've not seen my last three SOC posts...
 I'm using this fab colour challenge
to teach myself to embroider...)
...using the 'Little Stitches ' book by Aneela Hoey 
This is my contribution  for 
Charcoal grey and Pale Pink
I've embroidered my pretty in pink gal
onto a vintage linen coaster
using charcoal grey and pink cottons.....
crochet butterfly
and lacy wings
  ...then I added an assortment of charcoal grey and pale pink buttons.
 Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has done with these lovely colours and next weeks Colour prompt..
...if you would like to join in the fun

Thanks for Peeking!

  4. Yes, I've seen every one of your lovely stitched pieces and this one is no exception. What a fabulous job and I suspect you are building up a nice supply of various colors of embroidery floss, too.

    All this lace filled work leads me to believe there is a finished piece in the offing, too.
