…in addition to and then this happened:

I take tried many, many emergency recovery operations together with unfortunately, at that place is no alternative to REDOING it.  Glue doesn’t work, filler doesn’t run, y’all tin’t get footling bits of more clay to endeavor and stick the pieces together…..wasted time…I had to redo it in the finish:


I then саrеfullу thread the sides too саrеfullу used a needle to саrеfullу thread the tag inwards home on front of menu……саrеfullу:
