The three shades of green listed are Weeks Dye Works threads, but three shades of a harmonious, graduated, green palette would work.
1193 WDW Guacamole
2201 WDW Moss
1279 WDW Holly
The Vine is backstitched in Holly, the leaf veins in Moss, the leaf outlines in Guacamole.
Note: I usually stick to DMC floss for my patterns because I want my customers to be able to find them easily - but if you are lucky enough to live near a specialty shop - I recommend trying the beautiful threads they have simply for the joy of it! Gental Art Floss and Weeks Dye Works are beautiful. One thing about many of my patterns - I keep a fairly simple color palette. This makes it easy to experiment with different colors. I like the idea that anyone can take my designs, and do them up in colors that go with their own tastes, home decor, or mood.
