As a thank you for all the lovely and encouraging comments I'm giving away a copy of the pattern, and the Random number generator picked #4 from the comments from this post.
Congratulations Carrie, I'll send you an email for your mailing details.
So many of us who are venturing into pattern writing and designing are referring to Elizabeth Hartman's of Oh Fransson blog post about copyright. If you have a moment take a look here, it's very informative, whether your a designer or a consumer.
Thanks again to my super Stitching Diva's, your copy of the pattern will be mailed this week.
