Good idea, Blndzrfn!!!!!!!!!!
  How's the caraco going?  I had to work today (kindof a babysitting assignment), so I got three hours of hand sewing in on my caraco.....I just have to finish the top stitching along the bottom and put the hooks and eyes/ boning down  the front and I have a new outfit!!  Then I can start on Terry's silk suit of clothes circa 1782. What a joy 0| 0| 0|
