    OUTSTANDING! I'm kicking myself in the fanny because I had five books of sample drapery fabric and I couldn't figure ou what to do with it. You guessed it, it's in the landfill! Drats.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    Frame it, think that will really make it stand out. Beautiful now though.

    What do you think?

    Way to go! It is going to be beautiful when you are finished. Showing us your ideas just encourages the rest of us to "get creative" also.
