    Oooooh thank you!!! Well, I’m hesitant about putting up a pattern, since I pretty much copied it off a rtw… Not sure how much would have to be changed for that to be ok…

    Same here… though for a short time yesterday it re-appeared, only to disappear again. Very strange. I have confidence that they will fix it…

    Same here. It is very strange, it re-appeared at some point in the projects page, now it’s gone again, from everywhere, the projects page and my studio… hm. Is someone from the website reading this?
