I may try this...I don't know though. Think I'd better pay you to do it! LOL!

Another great one. While my hand heals, I will just enjoy reading about all the crafting you're doing. I'm also reading up and stashing other tutorials for when I'm back in action. I feel like sewing, and if I can manage it with this splint, I'll sneak it in, but someone else will have to cut for me. lol
