Broken fiber rack and some frogging
This is the 4-piece cage folded in half and stored in a front area of Needle Nicely.
It will reside there until a new part arrives from California.
This is the culprit. It's the cap to the hole in the base into which the pole is wedged. The doughnut fits around the pole and turns, but the pole rests in this "widget". You can see the left edge where obviously the seal has broken loose.
And a bottom view of the base, showing the gaping hole where the "widget" used to be attached.
I think you can see the outline of the base and the depression in the center caused by the pole no longer being encased in the "widget". Of course, I had no idea of this until we disassembled the entire thing. And I am again reminded of that old saw: "I wish I worked in a needlepoint shop where I could sit and stitch all day." Me, too!!
Another thrilling discovery of my week. Somehow I miscounted on my Serendipity stitch in between these two "bubbles" on my Susan Roberts tree. The only thing more difficult than stitching the Serendipity stitch on red canvas with a red fiber is picking it out. Big, big sigh! And I have no guarantee that it will go back in correctly. Trust me, the next time I stitch this area will be the last time.
