  1. Thanks. The close ups give me lots of ideas! (As though I needed more to distract me from the projects I'm not finishing...)

  2. I LOVE YOUR POPPIES! You do wonderful work! It does inspire me!

  3. Muito obrigada por compartilhar seus conhecimentos, seu trabalho é maravilhoso.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
