Hi :) Thank you very much for the comments and the e-mails about my complaining. Lots of us have written to the one seller (the one that is the most obvious) and her answer was along the lines of "I know and I don't care and so what". And that's what really got to me. We've all flagged and Etsy doesn't do anything because of all this blahblahblah I don't feel like getting into right now (because then this will turn into another complaining post, and we should just get to the nice part).
So.... moving on to the things that really matter, like yarn and fiberfill and toys ;)
Here's the little cactus from Tiny Ami 2, that didn't make it into the book either. I was thinking yesterday night, that those of you who did buy TA2 when it was in the shop might feel a little cheated or something (you bought it and here I am posting it for free). So please send me a convo through Etsy and I can send you another little pattern that you want -like Tiny Ami Plants, or the cherries or something like that, ok? -don't forget to let me know which one you want and your e-mail address :)
