ETSY shops where you can purchase them for $2 each. 
New and free block(s) then appear for the new month...and so on, and so on.
Beginning January 1st, the ENTIRE pattern is available in each of our ETSY shops for $15.
We've had so many people ask us if they can buy the whole thing at once, so we decided to go for it.
If you can't wait for each block release or you don't have a Facebook page, this is for you!
We hope you appreciate the time we put into creating this BOM and understand that we keep
 the costs to a minimum for you. We ask that you respect our copyrights and do not share the 
pattern with others. 

You're welcome to direct your friends to our Cackling Stitches Group on
Facebook or any of our ETSY shops so they can get their own patterns starting January 1st.
