The response to Elizabeth Cowan's block and the First Year Set has been remarkable. I wish I could say everything was running perfectly, but we are talking about computers after all.
Update: The website has had an upgrade. Everything is working smoothly, there will be no more problems from the computer (and the pigs are getting ready to fly!)
So, a few notices:
Thank you to Lynne who pointed out that I was recommending a 1.5 inch turnunder for the applique, not 1/4 inch.
I fixed the 1/4 inch, reloaded the files, and put them in the wrong folder on the website. Thank you to Adele who discovered she couldn't download her pattern but stayed very polite and calm while I got the right pattern into the right folder.
A message to Phyllis L. of Fayetteville - your email is bouncing, I need you to get in touch so I can send your pattern.
Payments: I hate to say it, but PayPal is working perfectly and is giving no trouble at all. I am recommending PayPal as the easiest way to make your payment.
A few people have had trouble with their credit card payment. If you receive an error message as you finish your order, don't pay again, just wait and the payment will be processed. I have contacted PayMate to find out what the issues are.
If you are in Australia you don't have to pay online. You can print the order form which includes my bank details. Then you can pay with real money at any Commonwealth Bank.
If I am at the computer when your order comes in, I can send the link to the pattern straight away. If I am at work or sound asleep you will have to wait a while until I get back to the keyboard. I check the computer several times a day (or more) so you won't have to wait very long.
The link will come as an email headed Downloads Access. You get three tries to download the link. If you have trouble with the download and use up the three tries you need let me know and I will reset the link.
This stuff is boring, isn't it? I promise that the next post will be much more entertaining.
