    Working on design issues with my addition to SazuB's top....new to me and tougher than it looks. I have recieved Lestrong's center you sent to me ( just realized I didn't already update you!) It is gorgeous. I have already picked out potential fabrics, but haven't made a desicion on design yet. Ya'll (I am from Texas!!!) are all so talented, so I am trying to up my ante and really challenge myself with new things. Since I usually do simple patterns or paper piecing, I am realizing some areas I need to work on. That is why I am stretching myself with some of my design choices.

    This is the right place to do just that Alikat. While it may not seem like it to you, I know that each of us does the same with every top we receive.

    I hope you are feeling better these days.

    Wow! That's lovely Lestrong! I'll have to think very carefully about what to add to this one.
    I'll PM you with my details - I changed my name after getting married a few months ago.

    Hi Alikat - glad you are well. Look forward to seeing your pictures.
    I am so sorry to hear about your Dad - I know how hard it can be as I experienced the same thing with mine 15 years ago.

    Thanks dragonfly. ... we have been doing this for three years with him. He has a rare type of cancer. ... only 3 men in the states of Texas has been diagnosed with it. He participates in an experimental chemo program in Dallas. There is no other option for him. When we gets a "fever of unkown origin" they admit him because he had no natural defense against infection. A mild infection can kill him so they are very cautious.

    Sorry I din't post earlier - I had jury duty in the early part of the week and it ran late.
    Here is Melinda's center with Sazu's round. I love the deep purple accents in the lighter variegated purple batik - so rich looking.

    My first impression is that my round needs to be in the lighter colors with pops of dark. What do you think Melinda?
