  2. Your pattern link was sent to my email via this: http://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com/Individual-Squares/Monets-Lily-Square/ml/1/&utm_source=ppl-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=allfreecrochetafghanpatterns20130927

    Glad I found it, but I'm wondering if the above is not just a "Curator" site? I have mixed feelings about those, as they often don't have permission to use the 'information' and pics that build their site.
    Anyway, I am glad I found you. Thanks for posting this; it is lovely! I LOVE 'Grama' Squares! (lol)
