Kimber,

I'm so sorry to hear about your diagnosis.  I'll suggest we get going on that feature as soon as possible.  Smile

Neave,

I completely agree.  I see people who work their buns off, yet barely make any money.  I contrast that with another store that's practically next door to Walmart here.  That store is employee owned, so they get something more than a paycheck.  They don't work for minimum wage and the atmosphere is completely different.  Even when they're busy, the employees are relaxed and happy...and they work hard, too.  But the Walmart ones put in just as much effort, and get just about nothing in return.  Cry

I remember a time many years ago when I was really into cross stitching.  Someone told me it was possible to get cross stitch kits as demos for free from Walmart, as long as you would make the item and bring it in - in a timely fashion, though.  Nobody would get paid for that kind of work, but getting a free pattern and making it was its own reward.

I called and they said they didn't have outside stitchers making pieces; if they wanted some of those kits done for demos, they figured they could send the patterns home with employees.  I then realized I'd better shut up before the employees in the craft section were forced to do the work for nothing, not as much as their (pittance) regular hourly pay!  Cry  I don't think the employees were given the kits, but for a while I was sweating that one out, feeling terribly guilty.  Cry

Thank you, Neave!  Smile  Great work, and I highly suggest looking at Neave's albums, because she has much more of this wonderful work there!  Smile

Thanks, Melanie. Smile

I posted five FREE crochet patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)
