I know I promised lots of tutorials in August, and I haven't managed to do as many as I'd have liked. I'm so sorry - I've had a busy few weeks. Now a sick child has left me sleep deprived to the point where I think I'm going to start hallucinating if I don't have an early night tonight. No tutorial-writing for this little patternmaker....
Sooooo..... I'll link to a few others who can show you a thing or two - or at least point you in the direction of a few tutorials.
