Sometimes saying thank you is difficult. Sometimes we feel awkward, but we need to do it anyway. I meant to post this yesterday, but I procrastinated to the point where it would have gone up really late at night and no one would have seen it.
This week, I participated in my first ever crochet blog hop. (The hop is still going on, so be sure to visit Fosbas Designs for more great designers and free patterns.) In case you missed it, the pattern for my Hello, Sunshine Easy Drawstring Purse was featured. The free day is over, but it’s just 99-cents. There isn’t much you can buy now for less than a dollar.
For that day, which was Thursday, July 9, 2020 (if you’re reading this at some point in the future), I had 336 visits to this blog and 266 downloads of the pattern.
The pattern made it into the Hot Right Now section on Ravelry.
Thank you for that. That is absolutely amazing! I know I don’t have a lot of patterns out, but that is the first time I’ve ever had anything in Hot Right Now. I can hope that I will have more patterns hit that section.
A bit of a warning. Ravelry has recently updated their site design. If you have trouble with light sensitivity and/or seizures, you might want to contact me directly for the pattern instead of going to Ravelry. I will be opening an Etsy shop dedicated to digital downloads, including patterns, soon.
I’m still participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge. The goal is to publish a post every day in July. I’ve missed a few days, but I’m going to eep on keeping on. That’s pretty much all anyone can do.
I’ll get back to my regular posts tomorrow, but I just wanted to take a minute to say a much-needed thank you. You all are why I do this and knowing that so many people liked my pattern enough to download it is enough to make me smile throughout the weekend.
