Not completely happy with the lower border of the previous tree vest, it is too wide and has a length such that I can extend it or shorten it only by multiples of 40. Not really great for the ability to multiply size the pattern.

The last time I was at Croughton – I picked up three DvDs from the library – “Rosemary & Thyme.” It is a British mystery series of sorts. After watching the first two episodes, I have to admit I appreciate British casting much more than US.
