SpringerMom:LOL LOL!! I fully understand, Kris! I've downloaded lots of free patterns with the idea that I'll make the project "someday." But....... "someday" seems not to arrive.
I download most free patterns whether I want to make them or not. They don't always stay free and, who knows, I might make one...LOL
Barbara Brackman does a free BOM or BOW each year then the patterns end up in a book for purchase as does Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery. Why pay later if they're free now?
If I were to make everything I've downloaded I would live forever 'cause I'd never get caught up.
I envy you, because you can have cats. We had to place our cats early in the 1990s due to my cat allergy. I took 4 years of allergy shots, but I can never have an indoor cat again. My favorite cats were my Siamese and my pound tom cat. I have to stop or I start crying again.
