I am so excited for such a simple thing! I have FINALLY learned how to turn my patterns into a PDF file. Oh, why didn't I learn this sooner! It's so much easier! And I have Neenee to thank over at KKL Primitives! Thank you so much for the link and your simple to follow instructions!

So, I am now listing patterns for all my tucks and ornies on my Homespun Annie site, and eventually on my Olde Annie Primitives site...all in PDF format. Plus, I can now offer my free pattern in my monthly newsletter. Which, by the way, will be going out in the next couple of days. So if you haven't already, go over to the sidebar and subscribe to my monthly newsletter. I will also be drawing a name for this month's free ornie winner!

I managed to get a few of my three tiered pin keeps finished up. Still working on a few of my OOAK pin keeps. But I've gotten side tracked now, eagerly making up all my patterns! But it is going on 2 am now and my eyes are barely staying open, so I'm off to catch a few Z's! Good night all! ~~Annie


  1. Good for you Annie! I know when I contacted you back in October about a pumpkin pattern you mentioned that was your goal! Love all your ornies and other items as well. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Congrats Annie,
    I love it when I can figure soomething like that out....even with the help of a friend!!! LOL! Neenee has helped me too! I thought I was the only "crazy lady" still up at 2 AM....guess "great minds " think alike!

  3. love those pinkeeps..glad you are now able to offer patterns..when do you want to go shopping?

  4. Those pinkeeps look good enough to eat, why, I thought they were pantry cakes...well they are a treat to see if not to ingest...

  5. Love love love your pin keeps!!!
    And congrats on learning how to do the pdf files. Hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start.

  6. Love the pin-keeps!! So thrilled that you will be offering patterns for sale soon.
    So jealous that you and Gina get to go shopping!! LOL...can't wait to hear all about it. Sure wish I didn't live clear across the country.

  7. I got the adobe program to make them, very simple to use. I love buying pdf's too, when I want to make something, I want it now;)


  8. Annie, I'm so glad that I was able to help you with the pdf files - they really are very easy to do. Just remember to keep SAVING as you go along just in case your 'puter freezes up as mine sometimes does, and then you can recover your file and continue on with it.
    I LOVE all your work - so am going to run off and take a peek at your Homespun Annie site!!!


  9. I am happy too Annie because epatterns are one of my addictions :) :)....Now I know where I can get some more.
    I am having a special sale in my selling blog so check it out when you can.
    I will also be having a give away soon and you are going to get to pick out your item if you win from one special category so stay tuned and I will be back more ofter now that I know you are doing epatterns...I am off to work on one now that I just got for a cute clothes pin bag :)
