    I wasn't a big fan of feathers until..I took some classes with Pam Clarke and now I understand them. Once you get the flow..they can change everything. =) Yours are a beauty and really made your top WoW!

    BEAUTIFUL> The freehand feathers change the WHOLE dimension of the table runner. Very elegant.

    Thank you Fireworkslover for book tip - I am so pleased with the results!

    First is the runner as it was, then as it looks now - I reckon I can charge a bit more now!

    Beautiful! Such a difference.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Very nice job. Is that all the book shows (feathers) or something else too. Am tempted to buy the book. Thanks.

    It's beautiful, and looks much less intimidating than the larger feathers.
