In July, I turned 65; I had started to make a LO saying something about becoming a senior. It got all too complicated; I was trying to put way too much on a single 12x12. Lo and behold, in this first lesson, I was immediately drawn to Peppermint Granberg's LO and here description of a minimalist approach (my words, not hers). I dismantled my LO and re-worked it using the same photo. In retrospect, I should have cropped my photo tighter as per Catherine's comments.
