It seems that when I write my posts, I never remember to thank all of you for your wonderful and encouraging comments. I usually approve them via email, and then write my blog posts later, so the two never connect.
Stitches'N'Stones left a comment with a suggestion about the project I mentioned earlier in the week. The picture on the page she sent me to isn't too clear, but I am going to study it and then try to make it work on my project. At this point, I've nothing to lose! I will keep you posted.
