I had several good suggestions from my last post. But, I decided to go with the rust. We considered about a half dozen different rusts. This rust (Splendor S1009) is the winner! It’s difficult to get an accurate representation of the color in a photo. The light reflects on the silk thread differently because of the angle of the stitches. So, it does look lighter in the center than the corners. There will be Kreinik added along the angled edges.

Kathy Rees, designer of Star of Stitches, suggested that 5 or 6 threads might be needed if using a dark thread. Instead, I used a Copic marker that exactly matched the rust and used 4 threads. These areas use straight stitches which are taking a lot of thread. It’ll take two cards of thread.
