One May Night - Fabric & Floss

What fabric and floss to choose to depict a garden at night under a full moon?

I tried a lot of combinations and finally decided to use Zweigart aida cloth in the color Steel Gray.

The floss I'm using is from three different companies, they were simply the ones that worked for me. The first is Cream by HDF. For the green shade I've chosen a Carrie's thread called Fresh Grass and for the first time I'm using some Gloriana silk, Dried Pink Roses for the roses and one called Hydrangea, wait for it, for the... hydrangeas.

I've just stitched the top border and a bit of the first two bands.

It really is fun to start a new one, isn't it? :)
