You know the rules, and so do I.

    Hey Amy-
    Thanks for stopping by and reaching out! We have been flattered the popularity of our website, and keep hearing the request for patterns. It’s something we are considering doing with a few of our samplers in the coming weeks. At this time, though, we are spending every second of the day and night that we can spare creating new samplers. If we do offer patterns at some point in the near future, we’ll certainly announce it here, on facebook, and twitter, so you’ve got lots of options for staying in touch. 🙂

    Now, back to the stitching.

    Thanks again!

    I realize that, as you said above, making patterns is time-consuming when you’re trying to make new (horrible, evil, brilliant) designs.

    That said, is there any way I can donate some cash and use this picture as a basic pattern? It looks like a straightforward pattern, although subtle and clever in concept, but I couldn’t just copy it without at least helping fund your floss stash.

    Because I need this hanging over my toilet, where captive audiences will be forced to endure its cheerful horror.
