Purple Paradise

After being on time for my last TUSAL update, here's my prompt report for April's WiPocalypse. What is going on? I'm usually the world's first class procrastinator. LOL!
Until a few days ago, I stitched one project and one project only. I hope you're not bored with seeing Stella again. Here's my progress so far.
Have you noticed she has so much purple on her gown? Hence the post title ^.^ Alas, I had to put her down due to an exchange commitment. Can't show you the whole project yet but here's a glimpse of what I've been up to.
Yup, silk ribbon embroidery. Let's hope this project turns out exactly as I've envisioned it. Wish me luck.
Happy Stitching!
