Colour schemes For Embroidery Projects

Judy Adams forwarded us this link to the Trish Burr’s lovely article on colour schemes suggestions for the embroidery projects. Trish Burr as we all know is the master embroiderer famous for her lovely, life-like botanicals and birds and the author of book named Colour Confidence in Embroidery.
