Spoonflower Ends Sprout

Well, damn.

I mean, I've clearly had my issues with the service, but strictly from the performance on the website.


(that pesky 3D preview that was never quite correct)
It would never line up the designs from one piece to another.

But it had it's virtues and only needed a little more coding love.
More about this when I find out (got more hems to hem right now).
For the moment, this is what we have to go on.

12/3/2018: Also adding:
I bought a 3/4 sleeve Turner dress from my own print. Usually the spoondollar payout is per yard, and is one line. 
This was in my account today, before I spent it.

Okay, now I get why they're closing it down.
