Floss Toss!

This is the floss toss for my parent's 50th anniversary sampler. The fabric is hand dyed Saharah from Enchanted fabrics. The main color flosses are Dinky Dyes, Kreinick gold braid and blending filament, and gold silk mori. I got the Dinky Dyes today so layed them all on the fabric to see how it would look. I think it is perfect and it is going to be gorgeous! The picture below is a closeup of the floss and is clickable. It is a fairly large image, but it shows the shine and color variations of the Dinky Dye floss. I am so so happy with the colors Jo reccomended and the fabric that Lori of enchanted fabrics reccomended. They look wonderful together! Now here's hoping I don't screw it up. lol

This is the finished picture of the chart I am doing. The hearts will be done in gold (see inset) as it is for a 50th anniversary, not a 25th. This chart is by Lois Winston, from The Cross Stitcher magazine June 2006.


  1. Oh wow! I love the colors you are going to use :o) That fabric color looks so yummy to!!!! I hope you'll post a picture of this when you're done.
