This pattern is several years old, I made my first "webpage" for this pattern in 2000, then another with Angelfire in 2004.- I first shared this pattern on-line in 1998 or 99, so as you can see, the © goes back a few years, and I've had this pattern written down on index cards and used it more times than I can count over the last 20 yrs.. I pray you enjoy Blessing your Babies with this.... God Bless
