Perhaps, just maybe I may have gained an ounce of severely delayed maturity; I put the thing aside; I did NOT trash the many pages of pattern that have accumulated plus all of Jon’s photos and I kept the remaining tiny ball of Cébélia out of harm’s way. Not bad for a bad-tempered bull. : ))
Just look! It is finally correct. Four cuts into the row below is just insane! I used a photo of PattiD's, at InTatters that has coloured lines on it that separate the rows. For some reason this pic got through the dyslexic fog that I have been battling for days, Whew.
Here it is just after the last repair job:
Amazingly, I cannot see where I have fixed all those cuts, so I suppose the silver lining is that a) my ability to cut and repair has improved and b) the joins at the end of the rows do not terrify me in quite the same way.
Perfectionism (obsession with a prettier moniker) has its up-side. : )
Perhaps you noticed the shuttles? They are Sunlits and surprisingly, I like them quite a bit. I am a bobbin-kind-a-gal, but these are not the same as Clovers, which I do not like at all.
They are flatter and very light like the Clovers, but the tip is straight and easier for me to manipulate. I do like the colours as well. Anyone else liking or disliking them?
The problem for me with post shuttles is one of language. The words uttered in winding and unwinding them are not fit to print.
