Teresa asked for rain forest colors and if I had been first I'd never chosen the palette that is on the blocks but they are perfect.
Do I still love my ring system? ....YES!!!! I might add again my source for the rings... by far the cheapest....
look at the palette next to this red-eyed tree frog who lives in the rainforest. Look at the tree frog colors and the parrot upper right in one of the fans. Being third in this rotation I will use only the colors already introduced and have drawn from both blocks... It is most important that what I do is in harmony with the stitchers before me. But I will want to add my own touch and you can bet it is going to be a red-eyed tree frog...He is just too precious..
That brings me to another thing I have been mulling over. Years ago when I had my cataracts removed I was amazed at the intensity of the colors around me and realized I was seeing something entirely different than everyone else. Now that my sight continues to worsen and dim , I realize it is happening again. I know it really doesn't matter that you don't see what I see when I create something but somehow it does because I know I'm missing something. So it does give me a sense of security to be able to match colors to what someone else has chosen.
