Maroon.....

Maroon….
My color for the Rainbow swap is Maroon, I had no idea it would be hard to find. To purple, to pink, to red, but after much searching, I think I came up with some fabric that will work. I like it and hope you will like it too!!

  3. Love your colors Jane. I have several deadlines, so couldn't take part in this colorful swap. But I'm having so much fun from the sidelines :)

    Happy stitching!

  5. I have a friend who like maroon or burgundy colours. She can find them in a flash no matter where we go. Me? I'd never put it all together except for gold and a green, I think of these colours as sort of Christmasy.
    Can't wait to see what you do though!
