Overshot Side by Side #4

Here I am trying a dark purple and light green. It's OK, but nothing to write home about. The top one is the same green and 8/2 pink bamboo which makes the motifs a little more elongated. Since I am breaking several rules of traditional overshot, I guess I could break another!

I seem to be determined to use the dark purple as one of the weft colors. I guess deep down I want to use purple-green-orange. But I don't have any orange. Should I order some? I could dye some. It's a good thing that I put on eight yards.... sampling is fun!!!!!!

My end goal is to produce a runner that is five feet long to go on my kitchen table!
