Thank you so much for this.

Does this mean that Dot is getting along ok then?

When in doubt... make a hat.      And feel free to *pin* me.

I was SO surprised to see Dot's patterns appearing this morning!

That is so sweet of both Dot to agree and Crochetville to do this.

Hope Dot is well!

Here is what Dot has asked me to pass along to everyone: She thinks of all her friends here often and she misses you all a lot. She hasn't had time to write patterns or crochet since her darling granddaughter moved in with them permanently. Her health is about the same, but she's a little weaker, a little slower, and as she says, "my brain seems to have taken a hike, lol!"

If anybody wants to post comments to Dot here in this thread, I'll send her a link to it after I get all her patterns posted. That should give people plenty of time to say something to her. Just remember, there are thousands of us and only one of her, so try not to say something that would make her think she'd need to respond to each and every post. She'd never see the light of day again! :lol

This is wonderful news to hear that Dot is alive and well. So many of us love your patterns and appreciate the time and effort you put into them as well as your willingness to share them so generously with us. We may never have met, Dot, but you have made a difference in my life and my crocheting. My mother-in-law needed caps while she was in chemo and your patterns were perfect. My daughters love your Little Ditty bag. I think of you and Spike often and have wished for the chance to tell you "thank you" personally. I am so grateful to hear that you are well. Don't worry about responding, I know you are busy. It made my day to know that you are still with us. :) Laurie

Thank you, Amy, for the update.

And many thanks also to Amy for donating her time to the archiving.

Thanks so much, Amy! I dearly love Dot's patterns and had already saved a lot of them. But in order to make room on my hard drive (I've an older computer), I had to move all my patterns to cd. They're packed up since we're getting ready to move so I couldn't check to see what I already had. This list will help when I do. Wishing Dot health and happiness!

I’m still a novice at all this, but even with my inexperienced eyes, the first glimpse shouted “Pay attention John, you’re in the presence of true art.” What a marvelous gift. Thanks, seems such a trite thing to say, but I’m at a loss for one better.

Praise God! Every time I go to Dot's pages to see if there's an update, I get so very sad thinking someone who has touched so many hearts online is lost to us. I have every pattern and picture she ever posted and love making them still. Please send her best wishes & hopes for good health to continue. She has been sorely missed. Thanks Amy! We sure had no way to "track" her down. I know I'm not speaking for just myself when I say I love her for her caring and generosity and wit. If you need any pics, etc. just let me know. I'd be glad to share.
