Impulse Start

I was digging through my stash looking for the fabric for Tradewinds when I came across this light purple fabric and thought that it might be perfect for Midnight by Lavender Wings.

It's the perfect size, so I started it. It's so full of confetti that I have to change my needle every three stitches. It's stitching up pretty fast though, so I haven't got tired of it yet.

Midnight
28 ct unknown purple Lugana
I can't find the designer's website (I think she's retired) and all the pictures online are tiny, so here's a quick picture of the cover.
