    You are always bang on. Bless the way you handled yourself and the nice comment from Dorothy. I was looking for the directions too but will cut and paste the listed in the below comments and check later for the new site when you have time to finish all the work it entails. Thanks

    I am wondering if the “Forever Blooming Flowers” would be like the same as “Blooming Flower Cushion.” Please help me out. Thanks.

    Your website is totally frustrating. You say that the Forever Blooming Flowers pattern is free, yet I can find no way to connect to the actual pattern as there are not links or icons to click on. Where do I go to get this pattern?

      Thanks for bringing that to our attention, we will get that fixed as soon as we can. However due to your frustration it would be better to look elsewhere for a flower pattern since it will take us a while. The only thing we have is the video. We are going through some major changes to our website which there will be glitches and faulty links but clearly you are not interested in being nice about it. A little FYI would be nice.

      Have a great day

        Hi Daniel. Just read the comment from the lady who couldn’t find the link to the flower pattern. I’m so glad that you stood up to her in a gentlemanly way. You guys are so very nice and don’t deserve to take this kind of attitude.
        It’s too bad she commented in the way that she did but perhaps she isn’t aware of what you are going through with trying to set up a whole new website. I would like to address this to her.
        Listen honey you will never attract the bees unless you are a honey. I don’t know if this was your first time dealing with The Crochet Crowd but members just don’t talk like this. I think you must have had a bad day because I hate to see you miss the opportunity of your life by going elsewhere for your flower pattern. Believe when the guys DO HAVE TIME to post it, it will be worth it.
        If you are new to the Crowd know this, you will never learn as much about crocheting as you will from Mikey. I have been around for 80 years this Monday and always wanted to make more than afghans. Mikey has given me the confidence to try new things and to take one step at a time. Maybe from your standpoint you weren’t rude but you were kind of gruff. Stick around and have fun. I should add that certainly there are other good teachers and that they learn from each other. I don’t want to hurt anyone it’s just that I have learned so much from Mikey. Don’t forget too, that when you are watching a tutorial you can pause the lesson, do what needs doing, and turn it back on. Took me a bit to get used to doing it that way but I just make sure I have what I need ready by watching the video once and then work along with him or write it down.sorry Dan for going on like this. I do apologize.

      hello mikey!! Thank you for all your tutorials, I learned how to Crochet from you! My fav is the never ending granny square blanket. I have made one for my niece who will be born within the month. I would like to make one of your Forever blooming flowers to add to it. I was wondering if you could add the link to the written instructions for this pattern? It is really hard for me to see where your hook is going with the pretty colors you’re using in the youtube video!!!!! Thank you so much….. Patiently waiting -Miranda

    I agree so much with this Anna. I wish I had started crocheting years ago. The problem was that Mikey wasn’t around. I always did a lot of knitting. I didn’t have enough faith in myself to crochet. I did learn the basic sts which allowed me to crochet afghans. I stayed up all night learning the basic sts. I just didn’t understand the patterns and didn’t know a soul who crocheted. Then as I have said a zillion times Mikey came along. The other night I just felt like playing around and designed some lovely flowers and motifs. I couldn’t stop and learned so much. I have decided to take time and ask myself “what if”. All of those bits and pieces of yarn are great for playing and asking what if I try this.

    Like it, just how great it would look like in brighter colors.
