thank you everyone for the kind words!
i just wanted to say (and this may be oversharing) how liberating this board has been. i have been a member of craftster for years and years and have mainly lurked and ogled everyones abilities, but never really posted anything of my own except maybe 3 or 4 times in the past 8 years. i don't really have the confidence to put my original stuff out there for everyone to see and not usually things I've used a pattern for either. but this one i can say hey i liked this and tried to replicate it and this is what i got. and ya know failed pins are just as entertaining as win pins. so it feels okay if i go down in flames in trying to do something.
alright now that I'm getting teary eyed i just want to say thank you for starting this board and thank you to everyone for being so kind. its done more for me than you'll ever know!
We love seeing you post! This thread is great!
