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.

Brad

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.
