Jane, thank you very much you made that so wonderfully easy to follow and your style of teaching is levels above everyone else.  Also you allow us to use our own pace and colours.  You steer us in a direction that is needed but allow us to work the way we feel comfortable.   I love these tutorials and the others you teach.  Thank you again.
