Purple Dress

Work on My Needle’s Work continues, despite my continued arm/hand pain. (Man, I wish I could put down my needlework for a little while, but I would lose my mind.)

My Needle’s Work (WIP)

I switched out a couple of colours, using Plum Paisley for the dress; using the light pink from elsewhere in the pattern and Toasted Marshmallow for her underskirt stripes; and La Tierra for her hair. (The colours are off, of course.) I’m still not 100% sure if I like these colour choices. I suppose I won’t know until I get the border done. But I do know that it sure will look nice in my new craft room. šŸ˜‰
