  1. What happened to her website? I have been looking for months to find it. I would like to contact her. I made several of her patterns for my nieces for Christmas and I wanted to tell her how much they enjoyed them. I’m so glad you pinned her patterns, now I can find the patterns again!

  2. I am so glad. I looked and looked for it and couldn’t find it anywhere. Her Meaghan doll is so precious and that is how I spell my daughters name and since it is not a common spelling, she gets her own doll.
