I get a clearly understanding now & will hopefully be able to do it justice :-))) <br />And Mel, your chains idea is fantastic - I'm going to use it as soon as I get a decent-looking oval. It will give me the platform to implement another idea I had - adding small scrap thread motifs!<br />Love having you around always, Sue & Diane :-))muskaanhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13125166115615109271noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4725833531759425981.post-60507729749727692572018-10-10T04:24:08.173+05:302018-10-10T04:24:08.173+05:30I have no suggestions either, but I do like seeing...I have no suggestions either, but I do like seeing your progress!Lace-lovin' Librarian ~ Dianehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06032689683092213368noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4725833531759425981.post-29191089871311192142018-10-10T01:27:01.731+05:302018-10-10T01:27:01.731+05:30Are you restricting yourself to only rings?
