Official? Whatever two pieces I pick up first are the two that go together
first (unless I pick up pieces that aren't sequential in fit). Sometimes I
start at the top, sometimes in the middle and sometimes at the bottom. If
that is considered wrong, then I will be doing it wrong forever. I have no
plans to change. And if you choose to do something out of the norm, that
doesn't mean it is wrong. If it works for you, then it is OK. Remember,
you are a "Rose". There is never *anything* wrong with a rose!
