Comment: Your a doll! I loved all of the material. I can't hardly wait to start putting these together. I am going to put a thread in the group for everyone to post their project in. Also, If you are on facebook I have a awesome site for you. Different Solutions. It is the best site for decorating your home with the things you have around your home. My favorite was take chalkboard spray paint and you buy the name labels from avery. take them and spread them out on card board outside were there is more air no breeze though. spread them out and give them two good coats of the spray. Let them dry completely. when dry use zigzag scissors all around the edges and you can use them on anything jars, cans you name it. Have fun.

I knew at some point he'd get tired and I could grab it when he set it down. You do very nice work! I'm gonna cut that fabric up you sent me for some 5" charms, some Half square Triangle blocks, and for some 3 1/2" charms as well. Thank you so much for the great package!
