Brenda: I'm so excited to see you're going to start designing; anything you crochet is just wonderful, including this first of your (hopefully many) designs. Yay!

Brenda! What a beautiful motif! I can hardly wait to gather my pieces of yarn and start making different color combinations. I'm VERY excited that you gave the length in yardage of the colors you used! That is sometimes more valuable than the ounces needed because of the different kinds of and textures. Thank you SO MUCH!!
