You all really came through!
And it was a much harder decision than I thought it would be.
To be completely honest, I wondered when I first put out the call for suggestions:
What if I don’t like ANY of them?
Totally NOT the problem, I can assure you.
I wrote them all out in a list, and studied it . . .
Narrowed it down a bit . . .
Studied some more . . .

He was absolutely no help at all.
That left it all up to me.
I thought about throwing them in the famous pink soup bowl and drawing one out, but then I decided I needed to just suck it up and make a final decision. Have I ever mentioned what a problem I have with doing that very thing?
Don’t even get My Cowboy started on my inability to decide on something . . . anything . . . it’s a sore spot with the poor man.
Only I’m not sure I like them any better than the first set.

Have you already scrolled on down to skip my drivel and see which one I chose?
I don’t blame you . . .
Here’s what I picked:
It was a suggestion from the Patchwork Queen, so she wins a copy of the pattern.
And boy, am I glad that’s over!
Thanks to all of you for your many wonderful suggestions (I got 40!) — I won’t ever be afraid to ask again, since I know you’ll come through in style!
