What advice would you give someone starting this project? Remember what Kaye says...let the material tell you which way it wants to go! Over and over again, I have found this piece of advice to be true. Especially on the flag block.

Never give up - I've had the material since watching the class the first time...it just had to be the 'right time' for me to get started! I have learned that I cannot MAKE myself do something creative...the inspiration has to come first.
