Barbara Is Tempting Me, Too UPDATED

Ruth isn't the only one creating temptations right and left.  How about this lady with teacup and fascinator from Barbara Elmore?  It will debut (at least partly stitched in Barbara's amazing style) at Columbus.

UPDATE:  Barbara has added a second lady, this time a black woman with a butterfly fascinator.  Isn't she charming?!
