    Hi Darlene, your blog is indeed inspiring =) I encountered your write-up in the newsletter of CSMC, then was able to read some parts of your blog. Met Warren and H at the clinic several months back, haven’t read the blog entirely but your blog entries did inspire me =) hope my baby and Warren can meet again soon, take care =)

        It would look lovely and rellay enhance the pattern to back it with black. I don’t know what you could do with it then – the note book cover sounds like a good idea. I would suggest a hairband if it was narrower – 20cm is VERY wide!Teresa
