As promised, here is a Purple Update. So far, I have used up 1 bobbin and 7 skeins of DMC 3041. I'm really happy with the progress so far. I have decided that I will stitch our anniversary date on the "date motif" and stitch our names in the "initials motif". It's great that we both have 3 letter names!
