Where Creativity is Just Plain Fun

Membership is Free!

I have decided to end the Paid Memberships Program and just go with the Points Program. If you are a paid member, you signed up for a lifetime membership and are no longer paying for memberships. I am not really making any money from new memberships so it does not make sense to keep that part of my business going. Instead, membership is going to be point based. I do not plan to change this again. My income will be from sales of Paper Bead Rollers, downloads for people who don't want to be a member, books I publish in the future on Amazon, templates and template bundles, ads on the site and YouTube revenue.

All downloads, that cost points, no matter what level you are at, will now cost 20,000 points each unless otherwise noted on the individual pages.

Waffle Stitch Variation

I call this Waffle Stitch Variation
This special stitch is a variation of another the Waffle stitch.

Of course you can make this as long as you want. This would make a lovely scarf using this many stitches with yarn. Or you could start with a longer starting ch and make placemats. Or you can go to the two patterns in this month's newsletter and make a coaster and a dishcloth. What ever you do, have fun.
