Thanks for the info....as you can see I'm new on this project.  After I wrote I did see the info.  Guess it was just "too plain to see".  Have ordered the fabric - Looking forward to working on this.  You have some beautiful photos!!  You are a very busy lady!

Picked up a basket of windblowns. The rest are just short of being ready. So I made a cobbler and a pie and what? It's past noon already.
