Certainly, Elle, I am Linda! I agree completely that it helps to see others' color ways.
I just learned that of the 4 items I ordered from Amazon, the 3 I didn't need are on their way and the ONE book I wanted will be here in mid February. Guess which one that is? Well, I must admit that I have a few swaps I need to get done by the end of February anyway, so I will be busy.
Thinking and actually working outside of the box is how I learn so thanks Leslie and everyone else, encouragement helps and there seems to be a great wealth of it here. :-D
