HAPPY NEW YEAR! (and apologies regarding patterns)

Happy New Year everyone, I do hope you had a wonderful holiday with family and friends and that 2023 is off to a good start!

I want to start my blogging new year with an apology:  over the last few years I've regularly had people contact me to say they were not able to access my free patterns.  I couldn't figure out what the problem was so I sent patterns to people who emailed me directly but...  I had not visited the gmail account linked to this blog for some time and have just found many many emails from readers asking for access to patterns and I didn't know they were there and I didn't answer them!

So MANY apologies to all the people who contacted me via the google docs system to ask for access to patterns and I unwittingly ignored you!  I have now re-uploaded all the links on my patterns page and I'd be grateful if people could test links and tell me if they now work.

Also if you ever need to contact me or still have problems accessing my free patterns, please do so via the "Contact Me" link in the right side bar of this page rather than through the links at google docs.

Again, I'm sorry to all the readers of this blog who didn't receive a response from me regarding patterns, it was really unintentional!  

I do hope it all works now and I would appreciate anyone testing the new patterns links and letting me know!

Very best wishes to all of you,


  1. Hope you had a wonderful Holiday time too, and Happy Tatting New Year to you!! :)
    I tried the link to that last snowflake pictured and it worked! Have a fabulous day!! :)

    1. Thank you very much Sue, hope you have a great 2023!

  2. Happy New Year to you! I tried the link to the Quatrain square and it worked. Also tried the link for Susan Fuller's heart - your diagram - and it worked.

    1. Thanks for testing the links Stephanie, best wishes to you for 2023!

  3. Happy new year I was only thinking of you the other day, when I tatted your bookmark pattern,

  4. Hi Frivole,
    First of all thank you for your time and effort put into reposting the patterns! I tried all the links to the free patterns and can access most of them now (and I remember I had some problems in the past). Unfortunately, I still cannot open "Le flocon frivole", "Twinkle Twinkle" and "December Motif" (both pictures and the names send me to the site which says that the connection cannot be certified and it automatically redirects me to the Google account logging site).
    Once again, thank you for your care and effort!
    Best wishes

    1. Hi this is Frivole (now having problems logging into my own account to answer comments!) I'm sorry some of the patterns are still not accessible to you. Please write to me using the "contact me" link in the right bar and I'll send them to you in an email.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, it's always appreciated!
