This is my Colour Change Sampler - showing the effects of blending four or five shades of a colour from darkest to lightest. All stitched using three strands, and mixing the shades to achieve subtle changes.

Gina, that's a nice piece of abstract art, and an interesting colour exercise!

Very nice! It reminds me of those canvas work charts by Genny Morrow like Nova--with each square in that case showing different stitches. This is cool with the varied colors--it shows nice shading!

Hi Gina,
That's so cute. You have an amazing amount of tallent. Thanks for the comment on my blog. BTW just a thought, try using rope instead of carpet on the scratch post. Takes a wee bit longer to wrap but lasts a long time. I'll post a picture later of what I'm trying to describe. Thanks again for all your support. :-)

Hi everyone, thanks for your compliments! I hope to be able to put this sampler to practical use one day, when I am confronted with one of my UFOs and no colour chart to follow.
Patty, that is a good idea about using rope on Topsy's scratching post; when she has clawed the existing piece of carpet off her post, I will try the rope trick - lol!
