To all the blog readers:
The journey has come to an end. I embarked on this venture as a fluke, and continued with it because I was amazed at the kindness and generosity of the crocheters throughout the world (literally).
In the past few months, I have seen more than my share of those people who seem to not understand charity, not understand kindness, and most of all who on a regular basis really make my days filled with more strife and disappointment than happiness.
I have received emails telling me how horribly written my pattern is, that it is unfit for offering. I have received nasty replies to my denials to the group because I am trying to protect members from spammers with vague applications. Recently, my appeals to those trying to profit from the pattern to cease and desist have been met with implications that I am a bully and have no right to request that my intellectual property be used for the greater good.
And so, I have decided to close the door that welcomed the generous people for so long, but now brings to me those that lack empathy, kindness and decency. My energies will be solely directed now at creating beautiful gifts from the squares I currently have, and having only positive thoughts in my head, heart and hands as I think of the people out there that UNDERSTAND not only how to turn fiber into finished product, but also that there is another level where we take that gift we are given to make gifts for others.
