    If you don't mind me is it that your photo instructable is shown down...i would love to do my instuctables like that so you don't have to keep clicking the photos . i really like this layout.
    BTW... the way you have poped out with all the t-shirt projects is fantastic! it seems you and scoochmaroo are competing with each other :-D
