Ah ha! So it's really not just me!!! So you know what I'm talking about, right...? When I say the pattern doesn't "pop" the way it seems to do in other projects?!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are now on my Christmas card list!
God, please grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
