    Big hug from Gunn-Hege

  3. I just found your blog and love the free patterns. I am sorry to hear of the woman who sold the pattern on ebay. That is terrible. You are so kind to post the patterns and then someone had the nerve to steal it. I do love your site and crochet for the hospital in Arkansas. Thank you for such lovely patterns.

  4. this is beautiful. so appreciate you sharing.

  5. Thank you so very much for this pattern. My daughter gave birth at 36 weeks to a sweet little angel that stayed here with us only an hour. We had known this would probably be the case for a couple of months now. Because of the medical problem he endured he was quite thin and because of your generosity in sharing this pattern, I was able to make this for him to be laid to rest. It is a tender time for our family, and your kindness is so appreciated.

  6. Beautiful!..expecting a baby in the family..this is perfect!..thanks for an awesome blog & sharing xx
