It had to happen. There I was, joshing with Diane about having to bring out the scissors on a Jan Stawasz pattern. After all, I had also learned that lesson the hard way on The Monster. Now, of course I was wiser, more accustomed to the patterns of the Polish master. HA!
I had to cut the centre motif out after I attached it before adding a picot. Then I snipped off the wrong point when I began to correct the mistake. A mess. Now I have to re-tat the whole motif. Bah.
