Now, I hope I have not made any typing mistakes, as far as I can tell, it's o.k. and I certainly hope that I do not get in any trouble passing this pattern on as it is not my own pattern. I purchased the leaflet some time ago and so far I have not seen it again.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I have.
