My second block was for my CQI rr. We had no theme, so Debbie chose for passion for purple. My kind of gal!!!

I am learning to do needle tatting and had made a piece which was to have been oval shaped. NOT!! Mine turned out to be rather rectangular (can't imagine why). When I saw the ciggie, I knew what to do. I dyed the tatted piece a pale lavendar in a uneven shading to give it an antique look and framed the lovely lady. I laced it with a muticolored ribbon. Along the lower edge I used various shades of purple to make spider web roses and looped straight flowers with bead centers. A Victorian look button in gold-tone filigree with a pearl like center work well to pull everything together. Ahhhh, just can't get enough of purple.
