    Does anyone know how I can merge the projects?? I managed to post this twice, once with a completely new profile I do not remember creating. How did I do that?!

      Thanks so much, Ellen. I wish i had enough fabric to create the frill in one piece. I had to use every scrap of an already small piece to make it happen!!!
