Thanks for your reply. Yes, that is sad about BB -- she seemed to be doing well when she used to post on here (if it's the same person I am thinking of).

Is it LCLF that offers some product suggestions also (I thought one of them did, and I saw that GoosefootPrints said they don't)? I've sort of ruled out Komaza due to their limited supply not always jiving with when I have the funds/desire to do it.
