I have one more fall ensemble and my Little Darling, Gina, is the lucky recipient before I go full steam ahead and create ensembles for Christmas and the holiday season.
I guess fall 2015 is the season of purples. Here’s another ensemble with a shade of lavender and pink, but this one is different. I don’t think I have ever seen a pink like this—cool, but muted. Usually, muted pinks go towards the peach and this one doesn’t at all, nor is it a sweet pink. It is so hard to explain; if I were to mix it up I’d take red and white to make pure pink, add a touch of blue to cool it down, then add a bit of yellow, so it becomes a neutral. Anyway, it is a very pretty and unique shade of pink.
I happened to have the perfect shade of muted lavender wool which matches the stems and vines in the print. For the embroidery, I brought in the merlot color for the colonial knot berries and a coordinating shade of the pink for the bullion, lazy daisy, and back stitched vines and leaves.
I also had the perfectly coordinating shade of merlot heather wool to make a cozy scarf. The scarf can be worn different ways.
Gina didn’t want flowers to hold, she wanted a soft and cuddly teddy bear, so I found this one in a burgundy red and knit him up his own muted lavender scarf with fringe. The scarf is removable too.

Thanks for visiting and reading about Gina’s new ensemble. Bye for now!
