Web Site News
I have completed the update to my website to work even better with all devices. Of course, since I do all of the website work myself by hand and hard code everything, there may be a few places I may have not changed. Let me know if you come across any such page so I can fix it. For those of you who have websites, blogs you should know what I mean by me saying I don't use a content mangagement system and I code everything by hand. Of course I use templates, but I also make the templates myself. I always have since 1997 and always will.
The craft room section has not been updated and is no longer on the site for now. I want to make a video tour series and post those with a few select photos. I am keeping the photos and pages on my computer for when I redo that whole section, that way I can not only show the videos but also show old photos where appropriate.
The item for Wednesday, July 12, 2017 is below.
Item: You are hunting for the "Cat Nip Mouse".
Clue: You will find it in the Ornament Patterns.
Don't forget to check the download pages only.
It will not be on any of the actual pattern pages.
Today's Featured Pattern!
Today's Featured Pattern is:
"Tunisian Drawstring Bag"
This little bag is fun to make and is a good way to practice the afghan or tunisian stitch.
All of the patterns on this site are free! Enjoy! Starting sometime in 2017, I will start adding other designer's patterns to the site. If you would like for me to visit a site to pick a few free patterns from, let me know. The main criteria, for me to add the pattern to my database, is there has to be a photo of the project, an actual pattern page as well as a downloadable PDF file.

About the Weekly Surprise Pack
On Sundays, I will pick a weekly raffle winner! You cannot win more than once in a given month. Please allow up to a week to 10 days for postal delivery of your prize. Prizes go out in the Mail the Monday after the Sunday the winner is chosen unless there is a Monday holiday, then it will go out on Tuesday.
The prize, for the next few weeks, or months, the prize will be a surprise pack. It will be something from my inventory for the craft fairs I participated in. I have decided I am no longer going to participate in any craft fair since the return on my time and money investment is not worth it. So from now on, when I make stuff for YouTube videos, the items I make multiples of, for the sake of the video, will be used as prizes, as well as other stuff I make, or have in my stash that I don't need anymore.
The Latest Pattern
"Loopy Beaded Bracelet"
This bracelet is made with memory wire, beads and a Cotton/nylon yarn! It is fun to make and would look great with any casual outfit!
Latest Updated Pattern
Popcorn Pillowghan Square12
Originally designed in May 1, 1999, the Popcorn Pillowghan Square12 is the latest pattern I have updated! What I did to it was, I did not have the original photo on my computer but I did have the origina square in storage so I just took a new photo of it. The photo is bigger, has a white background and is more clear. I also updated the pdf file that goes with it!
