A friend of mine asked me to hook a mat for her as a gift to her daughter for Christmas. She didn't give me any idea of what she wanted just that the color "Purple" was to be in it. As I didn't have much time to think because I had so many mats to complete before the Holidays, I came up with this idea. Her daughter was thrilled with it. My camera doesn't do justice to the color because the border is purple, not blue as it seems to be here.
