I think I may have caught a finishing bug. LOL. I decided to pick this up and concentrate on it, secretly hoping for a finish. This had been my "when I'm tired of colour changing" project. I usually work on it in between projects so I don't have to change colours. Just did 1 or 2 length. This time I did a lot of it. I started and filled in all the red on the right side. I used the light pink for filling in the middle, however the 3 colours don't do well together so I frogged it up. I went through my stash and chose this Holiday Blue gloriana. This was intended for my CDC. The result however is much nicer. It also mean this will be entirely done in gloriana. I will fill in the blue for the left next, so at least this project is >50% done. Closer to a finish. Another happy dance this year ? That would be even better, assuming I don't start other project. LOL

It looks great, Tim - that's a great group of colors! I think the blue is much better - the pink just wasn't strong enough with the other two, I'm guessing!
