I really love that color! Wish I had picked a more spring time color now....Great job! I'm in the home stretch with mine, getting a little giddy.......;)

Thanks! I'm honestly surprised with how much I like the color, and how flattering it is on me. This brings my "pink top count" to three. My Sahara/Lelah hybrid that I'm working on is another pink top, but in a light pink.
