"We have it in our power to begin the world over again."
It would appear that it is a brave new world, folks. I have so been enjoying your comments. Not because of the ego massage, mind you. I find that part a little embarrassing. But because I feel so connected to everybody.
When you work from home like I do, it is easy to wonder if there is anybody out there.
I know it is my own fault; I get busy and forget to put myself out there. If you don't respond to people, they begin to feel they are throwing their remarks into a bottomless pit from which nothing ever emerges...sort of like the WIPs at the back of the drawer; the bottom of the queue,
You know the ones - the ones marked on Ravelry with the snooze button.
Was checking to see how people got to my little website yesterday and discovered some, as the divine Martha would say, "good" things.
One is Knitting Pattern Central which sent over 300 people to my doorstep just by putting Stonehenge & Comely on their site. Amazing patterns - all free - now that's what I call public service!
Another is this site: p/hop, which stands for pennies per hour of pleasure. They raise money for Doctors Without Borders. Designers donate patterns free and the patterns are used to solicit donations. I have emailed them to inquire about donating a pattern. Good work!
The last is one I may live to regret. I found Miss Violet talking about Chrysanthemum on Plurk, which is a twitter type thing - or so I presume - have never tweeted in my life.
Anyway...I had to talk back, right?
So I registered - gulp!
Now I have a profile and a friend list and am expected to post my every errant random thoughts.
Do you guys have any idea just how many random thoughts I have in a day?
Brrrrrr....scary....I'm just sayin'...
If you want to be my friend, although it escapes me why anyone would be remotely interested, go here
Seems like there was something else I needed to share...
What could it be????
OH YEAH! yesterday' s winner is (dramatize drumroll) Alex Debra! Email me and let me know what pattern you want.
And comment again today everyone, if you want to win. Share what great places on line that you have run across recently...
See? You CAN teach an old
I'm having so much fun...FA LA LA LA LA - LA LA-LA-LA...
Just to spread the joy around, I will be giving away a free pattern (of your choice - Spruce excluded) to one commenter a day through Christmas, randomly chosen by Mrs. Claus (just me - don't get too excited).
I'll announce the previous day's winner in each post this month, If you are the winner, email me your preference at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll email your pattern right out to you.
Doesn't that sound like a lot of fun?
Yesterday's winner is: Alex Debra. Email me, girl...
Now aren't you glad you left a comment?
