It doesn't mean I am done with the purple. I don't have enough!!! :(( I am missing two shades of purple. I definately have to write back to the lady because as I have already started the elephant, I'd like to find the same kind of shade. You are looking at one afternoon plus a late night of relaxing stitching. I was happy to do a little pink even though it didn't last long before I had to go back to purple.
