    I love this site!! You keep it interesting and have great patterns to choose from. Need more that have the CHOICE to Either download OR copy a photo of the pattern.just a thought. Because some people may justp depend on their phones to do things like this and can’t if it has to be downloaded before we can view the instructions and pattern! Obviously can download these to phones and I for one would visit daily to copy them!
