A newly located 8
Ah, I got the answer I expected! The vast majority of you said "move that 8!" I agree. Now, I also agree with Bonnie - in quaker tradition, only God is perfect, so leave mistakes in. And I have left most of the charting errors alone (there are a few in this chart). However, I just could not justify trying to place the 8 in an appealing manner as a mistake. Sharon M. is adorable - she was up early watching the baseball from Tokyo - and re-charted the 8 twice for me! Aw, thanks Sharon!! I worked on it again tonight, and I moved the 8 twice, finally ending up here... and I think I like it. Does it look right? The 8 is only 4 stitches wide and a little hard to place in an area also designed for wider numbers. I thought of someone's suggestion to move the little motif to the right of the 8 over, but there are only 4 threads between the small motif and a large one that goes to the right of that one, so that was a no-go. So... unless you all tell me it looks bad, I think the 8 has been relocated.... Thank you, everyone, for your help!!!
I didn't get up early for the Red Sox, by the way. Some asked :-) Well, OK, I did get up 10 minutes early - at the first alarm rather than waiting for the snooze alarm. I went into my stash room and turned on the TV - I think they were in the 3rd inning at the time. I heard it all the way to work on the radio, and when Brandon Moss hit his home room to tie the game in the top of the 9th, I was just pulling into my office parking lot. I have never run into my building and ascended to the fifth floor to my office so fast - had to get my computer going and hear the rest of the very exciting game. LOL. I am as passionate about the Red Sox as I am about stitching, I can't help myself :-)
