Pink and Green are the "new" Black

Hi Everybody... Robin here.

When I was growing up, there were two basic Halloween colors: Black and Orange.

In the 1990s, Purple was introduced as the "new" Black.

Soon after that, an "acid" Lime Green came along.

Now in 2012, we have a new Halloween color palette brewing: Hot Pink, Pink, and Green... all thanks to Barbara Bergsten Designs.

Barbara, known for the wonderful "Lilly Pulitzer" inspired color palette of needlepoint canvases, is now embracing her "newly found" inner Halloween. These are so cute, and are about 3 inch ornaments on 18 mesh. (On 14 mesh they are 3.75".) Available soon from your Local Needlepoint Shops. I can not wait to stitch these!

This is what is great about Halloween... the more unexpected colors, the better.

Thanks to the Pantone website for their wonderful color samples.

Until the next time... Hugs, Robin

  3. Robin, as soon as you have stitch guides ready for these little guys, I want to buy them! Fabulous! Hugs, ~Judy

  4. Robin-YOU are HILARIOUS! I love your witty perspective! Brava to
    Barbara for staying true to her inner palette!

  5. These are so awesome. As you, can't wait to get my hands on them. Have been through a lot of pink lately, lol. I wonder if there's a pink cat somewhere (not on canvas, a real one) - wouldn't that be cute?
    PS: speaking of cats, we need updates on Luna and Leo :)
