I'm still here, gradually getting my life back together.
The free patterns are temporarily (I hope) unavailable. Usually I periodically get a notice from Keep-and-Share to log in to keep my account active. I must have missed the notice this time, I assume. I have sent them a message asking to reopen the account, per their instructions on the error page. Bother.
I've been thinking a lot about getting active on the blog again and showing what I'm working on, but snowed under right now.
Later -- Free patterns are back! Thank you Keep and Share for prompt help.
