Houston I have ANOTHER problem!

This is what you should've seen yesterday!!!!  No grumbles about blogger going down as I so much appreciate the free access they give me to being able to publicly talk to myself!!!

Now, you may ask (or you may not!) - what's the matter with the MOG NOW (see title)!!!  Well the problem is that this round of diamonds is finished.  All stars completed plus the infills.  

You would think that after all this I'd want a change but I'm struggling with the idea now of NOT doing more and getting it finished.  That's what's making me a Miserable Old Git!!!  Also the fact that it's Friday the 13th (well it was when this should've posted) doesn't help either.  Not that I'm superstitious - just 'careful'!!!!

Below is a diagram of the final round of diamonds which are still needed but also I need to use the triangle pattern which can be found here to fill in the last 'gaps'.  I've worked out that I only need a 'mere' 42 diamonds and 18 triangles.  

Tat's all!!!  I'll then add a border to 'get rid of' the picots.  That'll tidy the whole thing off and make it looked 'finished'.

It looks finished to me as it is, Jane! - but if you MUST keep going, just think about that teaspoon and the elephant.

It looks finished to me also, but if you have a different idea of what the finished piece should look like, then I guess you'd better keep on going! What's a mere 42 diamonds and 18 triangles after all you accomplished so far? I do like Maureen's words of encouragement... teaspoon and elephant indeed!

I'm not sure what your problem is.... it looks very nice right now, but then I can also see why you might want to "finish it off". you are just getting impatient. slow down, let brain cells 3 & 4 enjoy their vacation, they will come back to work with a vengeance and come up with all kinds of goodies for us brain cell deprived tatters.

Wow! That's stunning, I don't think I would have the patience for something like that. How big is it?

Jane Eborall said...

I haven't measured it yet, Anika. I will when it's totally finished and let you all know!!!!

Jane its stunning and you have got this far, it would be a shame not to put the final round on it.

Jane, it's GORGEOUS!!!
It's great as it is, but a last round will even make it better I think.
