Success at last! 'Dragon' now will have a head, once I complete the needle sculpting and painting on his eyes. Amy and I managed to get on the same wavelength and it went together nicely. Thanks for your patience Amy!
I guess my job as a pattern tester is to be sure that the instructions are clear and that other people will be able to follow them without problems. Amy has classed the pattern as being 'advanced' and I don't consider myself in that class quite yet. Maybe someone who is truly advanced in their abilities wouldn't have stumbled over the head, but at least the new diagrams that Amy created to help me through and I'm sure will prove to be helpful to anyone, no matter their level of ability.
