...or, at least, they used to.
In this world of Internet and digital, have we forgotten our manners? I wonder.
Today I found out that I had been published. In Mollie Makes.
Good for you, I hear you say, and that is true, I am happy that this happened. However, I only found out about it when I saw, through the Pinterest app on my iPad, that someone had pinned my Doiley Flower Corsage, and the link to the website for it was expressed as Mollie Makes!
a) that they'd asked me
b) that the link from the pinner went to my Ravelry page where I actually published the pattern?
It seems to me that it is only common manners to ask a designer before publishing their work. Am I wrong in this? Should I be pathetically grateful for this recognition, or am I right to wonder if modern-world values are a little bit short on manners and courtesy?
