I loved your ideas :) Visit http://www.helloworldmagazine.com

Hello World Magazine

I am disabled, and I look forward to this new hobby helping me with the boredom and isolation. Thank for the easy to follow instructions

thornockdl 5858721

very nice

annapurnanaidu 6262163

I am not able to save any of the patterns. I have registered, but came back to log in and told me I could not do so. I said to send password to email, it said it did and it did not. So, unhappily, I am having to go through each pattern, look and decide if I want to save it. URGH...not a lot of fun doing it this way. Some cute ideas, a lot for beginners, which I am looking for more advanced patterns to look at. But thanks for posting these, any ideas are refreshing cause I am running out of visuals and feel like everything I make is a repeat in some ways of the one I did before. I will be back and maybe in the meantime I will eventually get the email...


I bookmarked the whole page so I wouldnt have to try & save each one to my craft projects box. LOL Now if I could find the time to relax enough to make something.


Your ideals are great especially for a beginner I know your books can help me start a new hobby being disable this will help me with my loneliness and make myself productive each day. Thanks.
