So that seems like a good introduction for my latest project update. I discovered long ago that some projects are just learning experiences. I fear poor Spot is destined to just be one of those projects. I have made rookie mistakes right from the beginning.
I have learned that hit and miss is more about planning than random. That's ok, it will prove to be useful in the future. However, as I worked around the border I discovered it was not even close to straight. A good lesson is not to quickly draw out a pattern, in a hurry, and in a poorly lit room. Some of the squares were 2, 3 or even 4 holes off from one end to the other. Frustrating yes, but a good reminder for the future. Spot will be wonky and I can live with that (this time)
He won't be a "masterpiece" but I'll love him just the same
