Sorry for the delay in getting the Gretel dress pattern into my Lulu shop. The procedure for listing new patterns there is a lot more involved that with Etsy, but I should have it done by the end of the day.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, wherever you are! We're having a snow day, so my weekend should be pretty and wintry, at least :)

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Originally being from a snow state, I do sometimes miss that. Especially since if it's this cold and windy, I should be able to see snow! :D

You may already be aware of this but I have just come across some of your knitted toys on ebay in the uk. They are listed by anniesknits4you and are actually called fuzzymitten. If you already know about this then sorry to bother you.
By the way the pin cushion I won is lovely.
Best wishes

Hi Sara,
Thanks for the heads up. This sort of thing happens once in a while, but there's really nothing to stop people from selling toys made from my patterns (although maybe I shouldn't be saying that). Copyright laws only protect me from people trying to sell my patterns as theirs. And besides, copyright protection is only as good as my ability to hire a lawyer. It's a really difficult position to be in as a designer, and I've learned to not let these things bother me. As long as I'm enjoying myself and making ends meet, those copycats out there can do as they like. At least I don't have to live with bad karma.
