A sweater this knit was bought at the same time as the other knits, I gave a dollar or maybe two since I have more than one piece. do you think it has to many pearls on it? they were given to me by my sister.

It's great Jenne, but I'm with Angie, I'd not have pearls on the back, too uncomfortable. You are very clever with all your sewing, love Chris

These are very small, so I don't believe the will punch.

The only other thing I can say besides the pearls hurting your back when sitting down is,don't put it in the washing machine because some of the pearls will be skinned ,I speak form experience.Putting it in the dryer could do the same thing to your lovely jacket.
Most of the time a all our washing is line dried so I really don't what a dryer could do to the pearls.Better to be safe than sorry.

I think Angie has a good point about the pearls in the back, although I think they look beautiful. And no, I don't want you to be uncomfortable in church either. You are so creative! Hope we get to see the shower curtain soon.

You are an amazing seamstress. I love the pearls on the front part. Not sure if I would have added them on the back and shoulder. That is my take on it but I love what you have done.

You maybe right I may notice them when I set down and lean back on them, and go "ouch" as they poke me in the back, cant you just hear me right in the middle of church service, hehe.

That made me laugh. If they pinch you you will think of me. 😊
