For me, it's hard to pick jusr one --- I tend to get bored with a color if I use it too much. But I can eliminate colors --- I'm not a fan of pastels, nor do I much care for purples, although I seem to have been using them a lot of late.

I guess I'd have to plunk donw for teal blue... something fresh and clean and bright about it. Two of my most favorite peices were stitched using this shade...

I would have to say a bright vibrant blue. Not so favorite colors would be greens and browns and black. Although of course I sometimes have to use these colors! Usually I have nothing in my stash in either greens or browns and I have to make a pilgrimage to needlepoint store. I have decided to call it a pilgrimage because it takes me 45 minutes to get there and usually an hour to get out. I only allow myself to go once per month!. Perhaps it is a good thing I don't live closer or I would have more stuff in my stash!

If it's the store I think it is, pilgrimage is the right term. I would give an arm, a leg and ten years of retirement to live within an hour of that store!

Carol,

Of course it is the store that you are thinking of!! Turns out the moderator of Shinning Needle uses it via the internet.
