Hi Cuties, I was so pleased with my SWEETPEA Design of the green Cross and Lilies last week that I’ve made one (yesterday and today) in Purple for Lent/Easter which can also be used for Advent. I showed Father Greg (my Priest) and he loved them. Love Chris

It is beautiful Chris. And the purple makes the design stand out so well. I find one of the problems with antependia, stoles and so on is that you want them to be visible even when sitting in the last row. The gold on white I did a decade ago could do with a bit more contrast. :(
It is easier to get good contrast on the green, red and purple background than on the white.
I love the purple - which we'll change to March 1st.

Thanks Martine, I agree with you. Our colours of Purple will be put up on Ash Wednesday 26th February.
I am in awe of some of our embroiderers in my local Cathedral, the Altar frontals you can see from the very last pew. I'll see if I can find my favourite ones and post them to you in a PM. Love Chris

Thank you so much Suzanna, another one of my dear Cutie friends sent me a PM saying the same thing. I appreciate your comment as well.
It does make it easier when the digitised design is so well made. Love Chris
