 Erika, at least your porch is straight! It's slightly panicky trying to keep up with Dennis and you sound a bit better prepared than i was but it's fun to try.

I'm wondering,  :confused:  did I miss something?  Will there be a replay of Lesson #3?  I've been thinking of doing it from memory, just have the drawing and no photo to go by.

Lillian, I don't think the replay is available yet.  The template is on the first page of this topic.  :)

Thanks C.  :thankyou: 

I have the template and my paper is ready.  I'm just itching to get started, just have a few questions and I'm too anxious to get the replay.  ...tempted to start on it by memory but my memory is failing.  :2funny:, or maybe not so  :2funny:

I know Dennis and Nolan are working real hard behind the scenes and yet they are taking time to come to the forum and visit us here.  Two great  :smart: :smart: guys, both with a great big heart.

Dham, you have done an excellent job keeping up with me and most of all you have captured the essence of the lesson which is - no detail! This is exactly what I was looking for. It does not matter whether the bouganviiea looked exactly the same as mine or not. Keep it up :clap: :clap: :clap:
