  1. Please can you omit the shop Australia, shop Canada from the supplies list. Use a header or footnote stating that these products are available through advisers in U.S, Australia and Canada or direct from CM website. At ………….
    This would make the supply list much easier to follow. It is just plain annoying. And wastes space taking longer to get to and follow the directions. Especially when using a cell phone. Thank you.

  2. My favorite color. I am going to do this one. I even have most of the supplies for once.

  3. Really like this layout and the color palate. Looks straight forward and directions easy to follow. And I even have a scallop blade. Yah! Thank you very much for this idea.
