Purple and Orange

I started a new wall hanging today. I just can't seem to get away from purple lately. I started out with the flower fabric on the border. I made a fine red grid on it with set in strips. It didn't do anything for me so I made wonky blocks with it and some orange and purple. Then it needed a purple border but that was too much purple so I added rick rack. What would I do without rick rack? The red felt balls on the corners may not stay there but they do hide the wonky turns I made with the rick rack. The yellow is a maybe and another maybe would be some beads. Or things dangling from the bottom. Or something else that I haven't thought of yet.

I am with you on the purple. Seems to be attracting me a lot too for some reason? Will wait to see how this one progresses with all your fun add-ons!
