Warm and Cool

It's officially Autumn in Melbourne now. In reality that means that temperatures range from 30 degrees Celcius to less than half that in the space of a day or two. I'm continuing my Colour Theory homework. This week we're playing with warm and cool colours--apt really. Here's a close up of one of my homework pieces: We were told to make a background of warm coloured fabrics and arrange five cool-coloured shapes on it. The pieces are to be held down with running stitch. It all sounded rather constrained when I read the task sheet, but it turned out to be fun. I've got two more pieces of stitching homework to do today, so I'd better get away from the keyboard and pick up a needle and thread!
