    Done, will try to mail them tomorrow. I tied up 30, 3 different patterns, 10 each.

    The recipe is:
    Hook, 4 or 6 (Mustad)
    Body: Ice Blue - Grey Purple - Ice Black dubbing
    Rib: Silver Holo - Purple Holo - Silver Holo
    Collar: Peacock Breast - Purple Guinea - Red Guinea
    Wing: Blue has no wing (the origional does, I just omitted it) - Black Yak - Black Yak

    They look a little something like this, sorry my photo skills and setup are weak!

    The pattern came from Cougar97's "The Precious"
