There is no way I could have finished this book without the support of many good people who were there to discuss ideas, read chapters, and suggest illustration and photo additions.
My very supportive parents, Nanette and Phillip, and my husband Alan are at the top of the list. They never seemed to tire of my “nannering” about edits and questions concerning what would help to better explain an idea or technique.
Special thanks to the West Virginia University faculty, staff, and students who took on extra work to support my sabbatical, allowing me to flesh out and finish the writing and illustrations.
Thank you to Kim at Fabric on a Roll for allowing me to wander around her store, snapping photos.
Special thanks to Henry, Penny, ...
