    I agree, beauty is definitely in each of our eyes. And can sometimes change according to mood, day, and life happenings! Great reply, Jan!

    the back does turn out kinda plain this way tho.....and I suppose there's no reason why you couldn't put a little more design into each block b4 moving on to the next one.
    This is a great tutorial - thanks for posting it!

I do believe that I got my info in a class taught by Linda Tayler but she probably did not use the "U" word.
    Isn't sight-unseen-computer-communication just fun and dandy!
    No offense taken, Topstitch, honestly. Thank you for letting me know though.
