12 Days … Day 6

SleighRidesSo yesterday, I told you in my post that I had a companion block for the Hot Chocolate pattern. Obviously your thinking it goes with hot chocolate and to me it does. I feel you can’t go on a sleigh ride without a nice good thermos full of Hot Chocolate to help keep you warm under that blanket that’s probably covering your knees. Perhaps you have a “partner” alongside you with his or her arms wrapped around you, for me, it was my hubby, that is who I have had my sleigh ride with and it was one of the most enjoyable things we’ve ever done together.

So my pattern today is a “sleigh ride”. This pattern comes in 3 sizes as it’s more rectangle than it is square and doesn’t look good when squared up. I added the 7×7 block in the hot chocolate pattern for those of you who might wish to make a mugrug and that will allow your cup to fit nicely into a mugrug. I love the text added to the block it’s fun and different.

Some of you have been having some issues with Payhip. I appreciate that you commented about this and I will be honest when I say that I am just not able to help very much. You need to be specific about your problem. Sending me the error alone doesn’t help. If you’d received that email what would you say or ask me? When I ask you what you were doing that caused that error, I need to know, like were you clicking on a download button, was it clicking on the download now button or the add to cart button? Were you able to access the page? All of these things will help me to help you. I am sorry but I will not put my patterns elsewhere, I like Payhip and am staying with it, so it’s important that you help me to help you and especially with such a limited download time of 24 hours. I want you to get the pattern, but I will not send them in an email to you. Once in a great while, I will bend on that but for the most part, I stay with what I’ve previously said, and I made the guidelines of this event very clear in this post last week just before 12 Days started…

On another note, if you don’t see the “download button” when you open the link in your email to your browser, it is because you are past the 24 hour download time limit.

    Love the sleigh – thank you so much for the pattern! I am using Google Chrome and I have not had any issues with easily downloading any of your patterns. I am not computer savvy, but I do know some programs work better with certain browsers. I hope those who are having problems can figure it out.

    Thank you for the Sleigh Rides pattern. I wish I still had my sweetie with whom to take a sleigh ride. Maybe he’s taking a sleigh ride in heaven. It reminds me of when I was on a business trip with my boss in NYC. We decided to see some sights as I had no idea if I’d ever go back there. We decided to take a carriage ride through Central Park. The driver asked if we wanted a blanket. We each blurted out “NO!” very quickly. When I got home and told my then husband about it, he was stunned. He told me that I could have gotten killed doing that. He said that I was such a scaredy cat that I locked him outside when he was mowing the yard. I told him that it was a once in a lifetime experience. I wasn’t really scared because the driver was very good at pointing out things of interest and there were lots of people out in the park. I had left all my valuables in the hotel. I had just taken the amount of $ that I planned to spend and I had even left my wedding rings in the hotel. I figured that if we got robbed, I had only what I was willing to lose. Funny memories.

  16. Joan says:

    I love Sleigh Ride! Thank you so much. Yesterday I had some issues with Payhip. It didn’t do much of anything when I clicked on the download now button, but I kept at it and finally it opened up and let me download it. I can’t remember if I had gotten past the point where I put in my email, or if it was the download now after that. Sorry.
