    Vee!!! You’re posting again!!! You’ve been missed, my dear friend! 8)

    What a gorgeous lariat! Your design and color combo (surprise! ;) ) is beautiful! Clever title with the cute key in your design! :D

    I’ve never made a lariat — I’m suddenly feeling inspired! Sending big hugs your way! :D

    P.S. Don’t think I didn’t notice that lovely purple fabric or those fabulous purple gems in the background….. 8)
