How to get a Chart for a Pattern from my Blog ~ Updake!
After throwing my hands in the air over ALL my free, downloadable patterns disappearing … and taking a long sabbatical from designing, I find I REALLY miss designing and posting my patterns. Stay tuned!
ALL my patterns stored in my now missing Box.net widgets have disappeared during the current updating of WordPress. I have all the originals, but will have to see what the outcome of all the new WP changes will be before I decide what to do. I love WP and am loathe to leave it, but me paying to give away my patterns strikes too close to the bone of what’s going on in Washington. Stay tuned.
My charts are all in the Shared Files widget on the right (or left hand) side of the main blog page. Its placement really depends upon which WordPress Blog Theme I’m using. Patterns are listed in chronological order, and the most current design shown on the blog will be at the top of the list in that Shared Files widget. To save time and paper I’ve started (March 2011) printing my charts with colored symbols in one PDF, instead of one PDF for symbols and one for color. You can usually get a good idea of what the overall chart looks like by either, (1) double clicking on the image of it on the blog itself, and printing that out (you might have to set your printing parameters to 80% or less till the image fits on one page) OR, (2) just go with the image from the PDF in the Shared Files widget. For example, the chart for When you were a Tadpole has eight pages, including the floss colors used and the stitches used. Since you can change the viewing size on a PDF, you can easily view it at whatever size is easiest for you to see.
PS 01-19-14 When you find a pattern that you might like to stitch, pay attention to the date when it was posted on the blog. I have so many patterns in the first Shared Files widget that I created a second one … Shared Files II. When I had problems with adding more patterns to Shared Files II, I started Shared Files III … which has one pattern from 2013 and all the patterns loaded so far from 2014. So check for the blog dates when the pattern appeared and it should then be easier to locate the pattern by date in one of the 3 Shared Files widgets at the right had side of the blog page.
