This is the truth

The whole truth and nothing BUT the truth.  It's official - I've REALLY lost the plot.  

Over the years I'm still asked whether I've got a technique page on this, that or t'other.  One of those being joining the second side of the SR to a picot on a previous element.

Sadly I'd never 'quite' got round to doing it.  BUT the other day after doing the 'joining in a new thread' page I decided I'd settle down (yes, the weather still isn't much good) and do the SR join.  

When I start on something like this my first task is to set up the folder and files to store the drawings, documents and pictures in.  So, in my enthusiasm off I went to do just that.  First the  new folder (in my tips and techniques section on the computer), then a text document (safely stored in the new folder) and an EazyDraw file too.  Great - but then I wandered off to do something else!!!!!  

I got back to the computer an hour or so later and thought I'd left the aforesaid files open but I hadn't.  That meant going to 'finder' to do a search.  What did that reveal?  TWO documents of roughly the same name!!!!  On further snooping around my filing system I found a whole folder (with a slightly different name) on the join in question and actually started in September 2011!!!  I'd almost got it finished too and then I must've forgotten!!!  Send for the men in white coats!!! 

So, I finished it off and here it is!!!

  1. Did you give instructions on this join as part of a TIAS? I'm sure I learnt it from you!

  6. Okay, I'm sure this is a fine technique because yours always are, but when would you use this? I feel like I've missed the beginning of the plot; I have no idea what the purpose of it is. (And I've already had a splendid vacation....)

  7. Ah, briddie. This is the join that you use when you join the second (unflipped) side of a split ring to a picot (or even a doodad). It gives a neater join than using the second shuttle.

  8. Dear me, Jane, see I told you you need a holiday! And I totally agree with Liyarra. :)

  9. I thought you had published this way back when. Since I didn't need to look the technique up, I just assumed it was available. Glad you found things all ready to go.

  11. Jane (both) you are absolutely right, and I believe it was the year that the TIAS was a girl.

  12. Phyllis - you're NEVER a bother and I'm sorry you've had to wait.
    Thanks, Connie. Where would I be without you.
