  24. Thank you so much for your comment.
    I do not watch football, but I hope Dutch will win!
    As I see the limited palette has unlimited opportunities. In right hands.

  32. Judy, I'm missing all your posts... really sorry ... I'm playing nurse to my poorly Pat.

    Love the Lion (and the mushrooms) Love the hint of your team's colours in its mane. Alas ... the national team is home by now! If England lose tomorrow, they'll be home too.
