Got to stay off the computer....

Good Morning...well it is for another 10 minutes.  I have been on this computer for a couple of hours now.  I only got on with the intention of writing up my blog post this morning, but I got distracted....I went to Etsy...oh  some wonderful pattern books found me all the way from Japan.  So yeah I ordered them...I will show pics when they get here.  You have time to kill go to this shop...wonderful patterns..  Pomadour24 at etsy.  Needless to say I bought two books...I don't know how long they will take to get here but I will be watching for them.  Like I need more pattern books....If you have never looked at Japanese patterns for doilies you might want to..they are all in diagram design and pretty easy to follow..once in awhile you have to wing it (had to tear one runner out as I didn't realize I needed to work each end from the center..I don't read Japanese.) ...Ok and then I got a few emails from some ladies showing me a Christening gown that was just made into a dress..beautiful..anyway it is made with thread...can I make it....yeah if I had the pattern....so another pattern hunt....I found it..of course..not too many patterns out there I can't find..although just because I find it doesn't mean I buy them...some are just crazy prices.  I know when something is out of print (OP) it does make it harder to find, but come on..be reasonable with the prices..you wouldn't be selling it if you were using it..right?   I just can't see paying what I see some are asking for a pattern...30 for a book that only has 2 patterns in it..one which I won't use cause it is knitted...so I will turn them onto the pattern..if they want it that bad they can buy the pattern for me to use...if not oh well.....It is no wonder that so many people violate copyright laws....anyway..so I have been all over the internet this morning ...my laundry is piled up waiting patiently for me..dishes are on the counter..dishwasher needs to be unloaded,beds need to be made, man I have some stuff to do before I can grab a hook..Speaking of hooks what on mine..I am still making the last of the runner set..hook has been slow in moving..but I have big plans coming up for my hook....I will show you all later after I get started..anyway I really need to get off the computer, but first I have a couple of emails to take care of and then off to the housework..Blessings my dear friends..

That's me, too! Always just mean to be on the computer for a minute, and suddenly 3 hours have passed. Glad I'm not the only one :-)

I was getting on here for just a bit, but now I think I need to go check out the Etsy store you mentioned!! LOL ;D Btw, I agree with the prices of some of these pattern books. I've seen some that are several hundreds of dollars. Um, no thank you.

Wow you have been busy. I too get lost on the computer. But I get lost in my crochet just as much. Lol I can't wait to see what your up to on your hook, I'm excited!

I know the feeling...my laptop's battery is almost dead! I have too many patterns also; I guess we are pattern hoarders! :-)

You crack me up!

Yeah 30.00 for two patterns is beyond over priced...that's crazy! Let them buy the pattern, like you said.

Wishing you a most lovely day sweet friend.

I feel your pain, I should be vacuuming right now and folding laundry, yet I am reading blogs.

That's a crazy price!! I wonder if anyone actually pays that?

It's a shame, much nicer to share the patterns at a more reasonable cost.
