In April/May 2010 issue page 50 there was a lacy sweater crocheted by Laurie Gillespie from Waynesville, Missouri. I fell in love with it and would like to know if you still have the directions for it and if you do would you please let me know how I can get the instructions. Thank you so much.

I am wondering if anyone has the pattern for sewing a fabric horse.. The one I am thinking about is the one that was a Cabbage Patch pattern. Your help would be appreciated.
