    Glad to see you're holding back and not making anything too fancy.

    I got about 2 hrs into it at this point is all. As most things i do lately, i never know just what the finished piece will look like till it gets there. To me it's like framing a house, you know the ruff shape, just not the finished look till it's all said and done. Heck i might change the look 10 times before i like it.

    Great! I'm happy that some people are early birds in the making! Those who have not started yet should take example.!

    There is no hurry, as I'm still missing some addresses from some people, so I cannot tell who is going to get it.

    Great job! and many thanks.
    Best regards,
    Toni
