  1. I have been finding your amazing patterns under Rescued Paws, and love your designs. Finding this link with information about you, that you shared, makes you feel more real, does that make sense? I have looking to cut the cord, and low and behold, I saw your link to that business. I would love to ask you more about the antenna you sell. If you find the time, please send me information for a small home, with 3 TV’s (all HS, 1 is smart). My bill is ridiculously expensive.
    Thanks for sharing your patterns! I finally found a link to get on your mailing list.
