Hi JodiJean, I just found this comment box and your website and blog. I am a little slow on the uptick of all the different internet sites and where to find things. I didn't want to hi-jack the wall thread so I tried the friend box first. Love your website. Your Finley and Aidan are so cute. You must have fun sewing for them. I am yarnjourney at wordpress and on flickr. Hugs, Joyce
