Finished!!!!


Here it is in all it's glory with the final round and now i'm dying to find more colours to make another!!!

I've thought about the pattern which is nearly ready (blame the hot weather for me lollygagging on this one) and I've made a decision.

Just lately I've seen time and time again people scanning and posting whole books online in Pinterest and on Facebook.  Obviously, as we all know, this is against the rules both for Facebook and Pinterest on the grounds that it flouts the copyright laws.  I cannot report these matters as the copyright doesn't belong to me so I only hope that the people who are having their work stolen know and do something about it.

It pleases me no end that NOBODY can do that to me!!!  If I'd published a book of my patterns and anybody did upload scans of that book I'd be very upset as I would've spent a lot of time and expense working on it and would want to recoup the financial layout.

I've also I've seen the latest trends towards selling patterns on Etsy.  That would've been an option but there again a pattern bought by one person is then easily passed around to others.  I've seen several on there that I like but to be honest I can work them out from the images so why would I bother to buy?  I haven't done that but it's very, very tempting.

  1. This is a good "granddaughter" doily - it has a rather nice crayon-and- scribble quality to it, and it will be fun to choose colours.
    And as I think I have said before, I know that your patterns will work!

  6. Love this new doily! Though I must confess a burning question: how do you (and others) tat so fast as to complete these larger projects so quickly? I could never keep up with you.

    I too have seen the full-page patterns posted on Pinterest and elsewhere. How do people justify violating copyright laws?
