Yes, I found one[1].  It misses some movements and a couple of
letters, but it's a good starting point.  I will try to write those
first.

She's already taken care of that!  Thanks a lot Val!

Just to figure out that I probably need to draw the thumb for the "A"
took me a while ... (if that is the way to show how the hand is
actually positioned).  I'm trying to follow those tutorials.  I really
hope to start writing something soon.

Yes, that's the plan.  Together  with the stuff we're learning at
class, like colors.

> All the best and a wonderful start with this amazing invention of Valerie
> Sutton!

Thanks a lot for all the advice and encouraging words!

Eduardo.
