  93. Janice says:

    I like what the maker of Buckle Up did to enlarge the original design. Clever!

  94. Jerry Church says:

    I love the simplicity of Turtle Lagoon. I think it would be beautiful to use batiks to blend the water into a soothing flow of greens, blues and aquas. Sea turtles are endangered, and this will help remind folks to cherish our sea creatures, no matter how small.

    From what I have seen, Shifting Gears would be my first pick. Thanks for the chance to win this magazine.

  96. Kathy Duwe says:
