When weaving pillows and tote bags I tend to focus my design on one or two Rio Grande motifs and then play with colors. For the pillows I chose an earth tone color scheme with a touch of Turquoise.The rich gradient colors of the Cider and Marigold tapestry yarns worked out beautifully with my natural dyed (black walnut) and commercially dyed yarns. For the tote bag, I used Nectarine yarn for a bold and bright contrast to the white crosses."
