Purple

Tried and removed four different purples until ending with 208.  I need to remove the light trim on the dress and change it to more of a tan or pale yellow so it shows against the light skin.  It just blends right in on the sleeves and neck. 
 
 
Found a beautiful tunic for Carole and will check for tiny rhinestones between doc appointments today.
 
Making more strawberries.  Fat ones and little ones.  I haven't decided if I will sell finished berries, sell the tops, or give out the source.  May take some time to decide. 
 
Have a good day, be safe.

I like the 208. I look forward to seeing how you bejewel the tunic!

Love the purple much better than the black dress. You are so good and re-doing parts when you don't like the color. I really dislike frogging, so I'm much more accepting of whatever's already there!

Sounds like a lot of success my friend!

I think you picked a winner in the 208.

The purple looks great to me. I wish I had someone to shop for me as you do for your sister. I hate to shop!

How in the world do you take out your stitches when you are that far along? I wouldn't know how to start. Your stitching looks very pretty, but I agree that the trim on the dress blends too much.

Love your colors. I must admit it makes me think of a Colonial red hat society and I have to smile!

Looks great Marly!
Hope the Dr. appt. went well.

Very pretty. I love the look of stitching on dark linen. I'd like to hear your process for stitching on it. My last attempt made me swear off trying!
