Hello Cherie -
I know you need answers for your other
questions...I have to find the pages on the web
where all your questions are explained...

But in regards to the sign for Christmas, I just
went into SignPuddle and deleted the two that were
there and re-did them for you can see by
the attached, I don't see any reason to bother
constructing a fancy new movement symbol, to show
traveling and rotating in this case...they can
exist, but just putting the ending position is
enough to point out that a change in palm facing

If you have to keep to one position only, then
yes, add the twist to the traveling symbol, but
that is one more symbol to add to the IMWA!

I will try to answer your other questions shortly -

Val ;-)
