"It's all About the Purple"

I've been working steadily on this project. Love how it's working up; medium purple, orchid and watercolor variegated. Tonight it did get too hot to have all that yarn on my lap, and set it aside for a few hours. I sorted through some print outs from Antique Pattern Library trying to select a motif for the June CAL on Antique Threadwork. I started on a pineapple motif in pink #10 thread, worked about 3 rounds. Then decided that this is going to work up into a sizable motif, and that I might want to make two of the motifs in blue thread, and create a small purse; line it in some fabric. I have plenty of blue prints, or maybe even some white satin left from my wedding gown, I have a few yards of that still in my stash.
I came across some notes that I had made on various books about history of crochet and about Tunisian and interesting Tunisian stitches. I added some information to my notes, and started to write up a new class proposal for the new LYS. The owner is very crochet friendly. I also need to schedule another field trip to this store for the CGOA chapter.
