Very nice! Beautiful! And thanks so much for sharing the story with us! "When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple...". So poignant!

this is a great shawl! Awesome lace work! Thanks for sharing the pics and the story.
You can be most proud of yourself and you can also enjoy the smile when you give the present. How could anyone NOT love this!

The color is awesome, too. I think a lot of older people use colors that are standing in the background, are not so visible and do not draw attention. But I think they should. I always made both my grandmothers wear colorful things - especially mono-colored - since they SHOULD draw that subtle attention to themselves.
