    Default Photos?

    Are the rest of us going to be able to see some photos perhaps?

    Nope, it's all a secret....

    When I get all the sets in I will take some pictures and post them on here. The sets I have received so far look great!

    Thanks for posting Griff...

    FYI ---I left the rubber legs on the Copper Johns a little long, that's just my preference, I figure the more movement, the better, but feel free to trim those as you guys see fit.


    Can't wait to get these patterns on the water !!!

    Griff,

    There is a box of candies headed your way. I tried to get creative and put them in one of my daughter's Easter Eggs, but it was a little bulky for the envelope. Let me know when you get them.

    The eraser trick works well. Another time saving tip is to tie the wings up first and do a set of 12-20 wings, then go back and do tails bodies and hackles. It seems to go a little faster that way. I use a couple half hitches between steps to secure the thread.

    I'll keep an eye out for your SM Candies Brad.

    Addy sent Buckeye, looking forward to seeing them.
