You can just hear Gomer Pyle's voice, can't ya ...
Got the big squishy envelope today! Oakland, California to Oakland, Oregon in three days. Not bad USPS, not bad at all.
The beautiful center block is hanging (in a plastic sleeve protector - to prevent any cat damage!) on the wall over my cutting table where I can see it. I'm waiting for it to tell me what sort of first border it wants added... hope it starts making suggestions pretty soon!
