I can't quite get my mind around the method you are using. Perhaps more 
advanced than the
way I usually clone, so I can't quite help, except:

For small areas, what does this method have over the MUCH simpler method of 
merely selecting
rubber stamp, an appropriate brush size (almost always soft edged).
Then simply <alt>click on area to grab and then click on blemish to cover.

I don't quite get the Define Pattern as being particuarly helpful here, but 
again, I'm probably
missing something.
