Need Prayers Please

Good evening everyone from Muncie, Indiana where it is finally sunny and the rain....thank the Dear Lord....has finally stopped, lol.

I'm writing to ask a big favor of everyone. I need to ask for prayers.

Last Thursday I had a black out spell. Since then I've had an abnormal MRI scan, according to the doctor who just called a few minutes ago, and I have to schedule to see a neurologist ASAP.

Now those who know me know I am "forever optimistic" and this occasion is no different. I'm sure this is going to turn out just fine in the end, but on the other hand I'm not smarty always ask for prayers.

Thank you all so very much for your kind emails regarding both my stolen pattern and my fight against puppy mills. You all never fail to bring a smile to my are all so very much appreciated.

Stolen Pattern

Once again, I have discovered a pattern of mine that has been compromised. Changed slightly by another artist and then claimed as their own and put up for sale. I have to say "I just really don't understand."

Since my site went to a completely free pattern site, I have received the SWEETEST thank you emails from so many of you. Those emails have meant the world to me. I will usually keep them for several months and will go over them; reading them again, and again, and again because they bring a smile to my face.

I'm not mad....not at all, I'm just so terribly hurt. I feel as if I've been used...and I feel taken advantage of. I really DO NOT want to shut my site down, but I will if I feel I have no choice.

Please don't assume that since I give my patterns away freely, that there was not a lot of hard work that went into them.... because there was.

Please...please respect me and respect my work.
