"Hi Noelle.  Thank you for your thoughts, tips, and the naming of a few resources I will check out.   Thanks to ALL of you for making me feel quite a bit less "uncreative" for not designing my own original patterns and charts.…"

"Linda, you say "When I see work like that which is posted here and elsewhere around the internet, I confess to feeling inadequate--since I don't create but only stitch.  Suddenly it feels as though I'm doing…"

"Carol, thanks for your reply.  I agree with you that it would be quite helpful (and interesting!) to see more information on each piece, if people have time to add those details.  You're right, it would also be good to see credit go…"

Is it Only Creative if You Create It?
