That's more than I wanted to say on the topic, so how's about you just send some healthy thoughts and prayers my way please? You're awesome.
In the 12 years I've been a seed bead connoisseur I was never previously inspired to make a herringbone chain. Maybe because I abhor patterny repetition~ and trust me when I tell you it doesn't get any more repetitive than ladder stitching 2 beads at a time around 16 inches of cord. Just typing that made me want to stick a fork in my eye.
I won't tell anyone if you won't, K?
