I discovered that. ;) I just throw everything under my one account.
You're amazing! I'm an aspiring designer, and although I love sewing I still consider myself a beginner. Your garments are such an inspiration to me!

Thank you so much! It is good to hear that from someone, a nice boost of confidence! :) (Sorry for the late reply, I was on vacation!)
You're very welcome! You deserve praise at least, if not something much more for your work :)
