In my eye...
dark coppery cinnamon and drab green
are both 'dark neutrals' !
(fingers crossed, this will somehow 
'pull together' when completed.)
A lot of times, I just throw myself into an idea
and see where it goes.

and make the flowers or leaves (I haven't decided yet !)
 the focus on the runner...

I'm using Valdani variegated Perle Cotton 
in Aged White, medium, to applique the pieces in place.  
This shade is perfect for blending with all of 
the different shades of light colored wool.
