I’ve had such a fun time this year releasing a series of gnomes and still have more patterns to go, but for Christmas, I created 9 gnome patterns. At first, this was to be the only release for the gnomes themselves, but then some matching homes came out for the gnomes and I decided to add them last minute to the pattern. I made this decision last week, and my testers have been busy stitching ever since. Houses 2 and 4 are not quite ready yet so they haven’t been released today, but you can get a lovely idea from this post what they’ll all look like. I expect them to be released later this week. There is a special deal for the houses, so stay tuned….
Please note, tomorrow’s post will also be late in the day. I’m at a quilting class all day and will not have time to post prior to leaving in the morning.
Some of you are still having problems with my image links. While they themselves have not been an issue for me I have had problems in the last month with my media gallery and creating a “row” of images. Thus I turned to an actual WordPress plugin gallery to re-create the very effect that I was having trying to create a simple WordPress gallery. The odd thing is I have these all over my site, but it’s simple to see what part of the problem is simply having a look at this page on my blog.. Where they use to be a row of images (well many rows, but they at least looked like a row), they now look like disjointed rows and I’m still trying to figure out why. The effect happens no matter which browser I am using. However, the links still work just fine. So because the new plugin gallery may need to fully load first the only thing I can think of is those links won’t open until the gallery post is fully loaded. I try in the first place to keep my images small just for faster page loading time, but once in a while one or two will escape and be larger than they should be.
So, let’s get on with today’s pattern…

Basic Guidelines For This Event:
All downloads expire at the time of the next release or hopefully within 24 hours of the last post. During this event, I have two doctor’s appointments in the next 12 days, so posting tomorrow and next Wednesday maybe later in the day. Those of you who know me, that no matter what a previous days download stays up for 24 hours at the very least, after 24 hours it’s subject to expiration. I am very strict about this requirement. I will not send you a free pattern if you miss the deadline.
Patterns posted on Fridays, run the entire weekend giving my weekend visitors a chance to get at least one pattern during this event. I didn’t do this last year and I was sad about being so strict, so I’ve gone back to keeping them up for the weekend.
All downloads are on Payhip. – Payhip doesn’t like mobile downloads, so be prepared to send it to your email, Dropbox, google drive, or any other cloud service you may use if you are using a mobile device to download with. All payhip items are sent an email with the download link even tho you can download right after the purchase in your browser. If you’re on a mobile phone tho, wait until your on a device that you can use later. I do not own any mobile devices, so I do not know how to send it to your email, or a cloud service, I’m sure there are youtube videos or how to’s on the web to help you with this. Please get your download done the same day, as I delete these downloads after the expiration and they are removed from Payhip servers, they are not there forever for you to download freely.
If I made a mistake on a free pattern, the update will be fixed and everyone who downloaded it within the proper time frame will receive an email with the new download link to download it. You have 24 hours to get that done.
I will try to be posted by 6 am mst each day, but I’m not known for being on time during this event, so please know I will post as soon as possible. I’ve always ended this event on time tho, so don’t worry all 12 patterns will get posted.
Some thoughts on download issues. If you’re having a problem, try a different browser. You can always use the email you receive to click again. You get 5 tries to download the pattern. If you use all 5, you will have to go through the purchase process again to get the free pattern.
