Grrrrrr - Gripe

So I thought I might buy this really neat pattern... 

Cute isn't it! Great place for this old granny to sit! 
But the shipping costs to Canada annoy me beyond words. I am sure it costs that much to send stuff here, because it costs that much for me to send stuff to the States. 
shipping $6.95 in the USA... Pattern $11.99

Shipping Canada $16.95 ...  Pattern $11.99 

It would just make perfect sense for everyone to have a digital download for their patterns and save everyone the hassel of paying the extra cost when you are an international customer!  I pay it when it is something I could never get digitally, or here in Canada,  but I never would purchase a pattern when the shipping is 1 1/2 times the original cost!

Just saying'!

Please go back two posts and read about my giveaway!

My two cents? Buy one of these bleacher chairs at Walmart or an equivalent store & cover with fabric of your choice. When you cover, add a hanging pocket for water bottles & such. I'll bet you can figure that out. :)
