Thank you, Duchess Willow, for your compliments.  The summer is soon upon us
and my castle renovation is nearly done (by Wednesday, I hope!)  With the
lengthening days, I will have time to resume labor on the beautification
project.  After June 6, I'll pick up the threads and paint brushes with joy!
 Let me know when you are available, and if anyone else is interested in
this art project, please reply!
