  1. Nice and simple. You've got a great collection of different like-color scarves growing on this blog. My Special Olympics colors are finally arriving in the mail today.

  2. Hi Sandra

    Don't know if you are aware that the "printer friendly" only open the pillow pattern in pdf?? Just thought I would let you know just in case.

    ps love your work.

  3. Pam, you CAN make a pdf using print friendly, but it is not ONLY a pdf. When you click on print friendly, it comes up with a printable page of the post. If you want a pdf of the page, you have to click on "pdf". Then it generates a pdf file which you can save if you wish.

  4. I like that the "Printer Friendly" also lets me print directly to my printer. Another thing it does is lets you adjust the font size up to extra large so a pattern is easier to see.
    A numer of sites are using this now and I like it.
    Sandie, I have been using your patterns for many year now and I like them. There is one pattern though that I had printed years ago and can no longer find. it is your "scrap Strip Afghan". This is the very reason I now save all of the patterns I find to my computer. Then they don't get lost.
