Hey kim,
I love playing with the template! I know that it is PU, but would it be allowed to give the pumpkins away on my blog? do you have TOU somewhere? And if I can't share them on my blog, could I give them to all the girls that play along here?

kimberkatt
10-26-2009, 05:33 PM
uhhh... sure! I don't see why not, as long as you are giving them away as freebies! :h <----- I got my Devil Piggy!!! LOL! Thank you Toiny! {mwah}

Hey now... that's not a bad idea! I just need to go hone my skills a little! lol I used to LOVE doing paper piecing, either freehand or following templates... I actually still have a few that I did and I was thinking of scanning and converting to templates for my own personal use... but, if you guys want them, then I'll certainly share! :D
