, but since I have put it here, I see more that was wrong with it. I was in a crunch to get it done... so...
I hate those crunch times.

Good one *roo-roo
But I actually felt like I SANK because it didn't turn out as well as I hoped. So I sure appreciated Bren's more. And should try another one. Maybe the next one will *bloom*.

. I see where I didn't do the graduation of tones well enough. And I missed one pedal that I had to adjust to fit in. And I see that I have one extra black spot towards the center.
Anyway NOT as well executed as yours. But just to show that I did try once and would like to [mentally] do more.
I have so much muscle pain from head to foot lately, it is hard to care to do anything other then breath.
And my daughter & her man were here a couple hours yesterday and a few the day before. Anyway, she talked me out of sewing those squares. I still want to get them done. But I think I will focus on the drawing that is to go in the mail, first. Anyway...... I wondered if rose turned out so crappy because I tried to get every detail is such a small piece? Nah... it is the pencil pusher!!!
The kids did some work in my place that with them doing it, it was done in no time, and for me.... it would have been forever, yet. So that was a HUGE blessing.
I so appreciate that they came at all, and that they did what they did. Was nice seeing her.
Well bless you folks.
Have a most lovely day/evening. I think I will get my pencils out. O!!!! Sasha brought me a electric [battery operated] eraser. Her partner wanted to know what it was like? I said I have never had one, just various ones mentioned they had one, so I wanted to at least try it.
Sasha said the guy in the art store tried to sell her a $79 [I think was the price she stated] one. She said no, this $10 one will do. I AM SOOOO Glad she didn't get the other one.
Anyway, her partner tried it out and he said, "HEY!!! THIS WORKS!!! IT IS SO COOL!!" ha ha ha
So I should have enough to get going.
Thank you each one of you that have supported me and your kindness.
I really don't think I would have been where I am, in many ways, if it wasn't the kindness of people like you.
If I may, also comment on John's question, that I know Ken already answered on Ken's thread about how does drawing buildings work on the Mellotex. Just look at Mike's website. He has all kinds of buildings. This is not to override Ken's answer for he did answer appropriately and it was a question to him, anyway. But just saying.....
See ya later.... Blessings to you. IRma
