Sharon, for those of us who are real beginners could you identify an example
of a pink-ground bicolor TB? Maybe pick some examples from the last
Schreiner's catalog if you have one. I need help visualizing it. Would
this be something with pink standards and slightly different pink falls, but
with some other color splashed or stitched on the standards or falls?
