that new purple pin, that is.  and this one will remain a brooch – unless the person buying it chooses otherwise.  it just looks like a brooch to me – plus, i don’t have the right beads to make a necklace for it.  still, i really do like it.  and i’m certain i can find enough beads to at least make matching earrings.

new purple pin




of course, all that lovely purple fabric will be gone once it’s finished!  and the outer edge may end up slightly different.  i never know what i’m going to do once i have the backing piece on – what kind of finished edge – or fringe – or???  for now, am thinking it won’t look much different.

love and beauty
