    Thank you for finding such a great collection of simple patterns! I could possibly even get my sisters to try some of these! I don’t know of it was changed recently, but the link for #1 says it is an “invite only” blog. Sad because it’s super cute. But there’s still plenty to keep hands busy. 😉 Thanks again!

    Sadly I can not get any patterns… they say they are free but I’m not having any luck. Sad as I like and trust this site.

      I’m not sure why you’re having trouble Debbie. Did you click on the names of the patterns? They are links that should take you to the patterns.
