"Purple-licious" has enjoyed its debut at the Spring Online Needle Work Show - April 18 - 23rd in the Dinky Dyes "booth".   Take a look and see the other designs we have to offer: Online Needleworkshow

And do visit my Tempting Tangles Blog for close up snippets of this beautiful design which is a companion "Verdant Variations" and "Sampling In Scarlets", both released in 2012.

In another week or two it will be available in shops so get ready for this luscious design worked in Dinky Dyes silks: Kirribilli, Jindabyne, Native Plum, Cabernet and Fantasy Blues.  The design is embellished with Mill Hill Petite glass beads in Victorian Gold and decorated with some deliightfully unique back stitching.
