No Winner Yet

Ladies, ladies, ladies! I can't believe we still don't have a winner yet. I've been holding off on starting the "focal point" until we had a winner but I can't go much further without it so I'll give you one more suggestion.

Why don't you all poke around over at my Flickr site and see if you get any ideas!

Ok, onto the purse itself:

Green And Purple Block

I did some more beading yesterday. I worked on that bottom Herringbone seam. I must say, that is just so pretty! I really like the way the Herringbone looks over the ribbon! I knew if I worked with it long enough, I'd find a way to make that Herringbone more attractive!

I then beaded the bottom right-hand seam.

I do plan to hand-paint that applique as it might clash with my focal point which will be white. I'm just holding off until I get the focal point stitched on.

Ok, I think I've given ya'll a good couple of hints here. Keep guessing! I'm off to organize my fancy threads in a nice rolling cart that I bought at WalMart over the weekend.

When I first saw this the other day, I thought The Flower Garden, but didn't guess. I didn't look at Flickr, but perhaps I should! Love the look so far.

Are you going to be using one of your ladies and the pin as a hat?

The white roses are the focal point I think.....

I'll try again, you may have this 3 times. My guess is "The Purple Rose of Cairo" Thinking you might cover the white roses with purple beads. June

okay I keep reading this over and over, and you mention a white focal point, and that it isn't stitched on yet. So my only idea is the roses, but as I would think you had already attached it.... Maybe? Ugh, I feel so dense right now. As I have no idea of anything clever with the rose part. Although I am surious to see what you are going to do with the silver leaves pin.
