New Morning, new ideas...

Okay, so the person who wrote that email last night probably didn't mean me to take her message as my patterns aren't worth the paper and ink it takes to print them. I don't want anyone frustrated. That wasn't my intent when it came to redoing the website, it was to make things easier! Obviously, some people think the old way is better..so what can I do?

I remembered that some recipe sites and others have a "click here for printer friendly version" option. So this morning I went in and made ANOTHER page for every pattern page I've got and linked that on the original page that had the menu on it. It wasn't hard...just tedious. I don't know if anyone will even really use it. There are other things that probably should be done to make things more printer friendly, like reduce the font size, reduce picture size, etc..but then we are really getting into alot of work This is it for now!

Besides, I'd rather be creating something with fabric than dicking around with this website thing endlessly and still have people finding fault with this or that!!



  1. Bonnie,
    I just want to say thank you and I really appreciate the work that you have done in order to share your wonderful ideas and patterns.
    I've noticed in life that there are always some people who are resistant to change, any change. I find it hard to understand as a person who thrives on change. I suppose those resistant to change cause someone like me to pause and think through my reasons for accepting change but non the less they sure frustrate me!
    Have a wonderful day and God Bless you!

  2. Bonnie,
    I am in the Yahoo Stashbuster's group but actually have visted your website many times before I joined any of the Yahoo groups. Your site is great, don't let anyone make you mad because they aren't willing to take the time to cut and past a few things into a Word file so it'll print better! I started the X-string quilt two months ago and actually had an "accident" with my RC and cut off the side of my finger tip. It doesn't look gross anymore and the skin is growing back like the Dr said it would (although I didn't believe him). This quilt has become a UFO until I gather the courage to start it again. Have you ever thought about printing your patterns to a PDF file? I have a free program that I use to literally print from Word or any other software into a PDF and it works great. Everyone is able to download quicker and print off without worrying if their software can open the file. Email me or comment on my blog if you would like more info! http://dreamthinkgergal.blogspot.com/
    Happy stitching! Crystal
