  • How do you stop looking for patterns?

    My god!

    I can't seem to stop printing, copying, scanning, buying, and even editing patterns. Replace an horse with a hummingbird, etc.

    So how do I stop playing with the patterns and get some scrolling done?

    I have done some scrolling, but I've been playing with the patterns allot more than actually scrolling them.

    Am I sick? Do I need a new drug? Is there a medial condition that has these symptoms?

        There is no cure.
        I have thousands of patterns, in fact I have over 1000 ornament patterns alone, and probably 10 gigabytes of scans and other patterns.
        I spend more time looking for patterns and making patterns than I do scrolling.

        I may have found a cure though. I am going on a cruise in January so no computers for a couple of weeks. That may help,,,,,but I doubt it.

              I will probably be too busy on the dance floor anyway.
              Steve you are right. I am taking a couple of cameras with me so I will get tons of inspiration

                Carl,

                Hand a camera to someone that isn't dancing and ask for photos of you and your wife dancing. Now that's a pattern in the making. Your Fred and Ginger pattern will have some stiff competition....Aye!

                  Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                  I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                  This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                  I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                  Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                  How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                  I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                  First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
