I picked it back up yesterday, looked at a tut that was posted, tried it and CLICK!! There it was! All the sudden it made sense...... and the bow came out looking presentable! So I made more... and the more I made, the better they looked. It all seriously just CLICKED!

I am so dang excited! :lol I Have been making bows like crazy today. I feel like I have really jumped a hurdle and could maybe be as good someday as a lot of the members here who post amazing bows.

Moral of the story - don't give up!!! Keep on trying and someday IT WILL CLICK!

So glad you did not give up. 50% is the tut and the other 50% has to come from you. If you don't continue to practice then you will not get it. I bet you feel great that you were able to master that skill! Congrats!!! =
