... went ahead and did it. Still, you know by now how Livia is; she can't let me do things just once, so after spending time doing one drawing she decided she didn't like the drawing she had chosen for me to copy so got me to start all over with a new one. Sigh! Luckily, this time I only had to do the drawing two times.
