Oh yeah.  Olive green, yellow, orange.  And gold.  Shiny gold.  When I say "vintage", I mean vintage.   Wink  I was at an estate auction.  They tend to try to get rid of things in groups, so even if you only want one thing, you get stuck with a whole bunch of stuff (but all for very cheap).  A lady wanted one of the framed art pieces, but she was going to leave the rest, including the framed crewel embroidery!  I asked her about it, and she said I could have it.  Now it's a purse.

That is really cool looking.  I love working with old fabrics and vintage pieces.  I made my valance in my laundry room out of old napkins and knitted pot holders.
