The first picture is my favorite since you can see the marker on the bottom of Rose #3's feet. And, in case you are wondering, the marker that I THOUGHT was washable, was, in fact, not exactly all that washable. Alas.
On an unrelated note, I heard about a book called The Lace Reader on MPR. The MPR interview was about how the book broke through the stigma of self-publication and the author sold the work to a major publishing house. I thought the story of how the book became published was fascinating. I would really like to read that book.
