The past couple of days have been super busy. One of the reasons for that is because I took lots of time to update and add lot of links to this site. There was also time to reply to several comments.
I also added a page by splitting the Towels page into Towels-Crochet and Towels-Knit. My motivation was to make this site easier to use. If it doesn’t help, please let me know.
There are probably more dead links, for which I apologize. I will be looking for these as much as possible. If you see some that have been missed, please let me know so they can be corrected or removed.
My files are bursting with new links to add here. There are not enough hours in my days to do as much as I want on this site. For some reason, my employer expects me to work when schedule; my family needs my attention, I need a bit of sleep; and a bit of time to knit or crochet is also needed. I learned a long time ago it is better for me to be busy than bored.
Have a great week!!

I have been working on the Towel page this week. There is a new Category titled Towel Holders/Rings. At this time all entries there are crocheted. There have also been additions to Towel Toppers, Knit Towels and Crocheted Towels.
Life and links on this blog are an interesting combination at times. This week they are especially unique because it is the week of the Baseball World Series and the St. Louis Cardinals Team is one of the contenders. I have been an avid Cardinal fan since the early 1960′s, having grown up listening to Jack Buck of KMOX Radio announcing the games. The rest of my family also enjoys them as well. Our evening meals this week have been quick and easy to allow us time to be done eating before the ball game. Most evenings there is time to work on this blog while my family watches programs that are not my to my liking. Even I can be found watching it this week during the ball game.
In this house, good baseball is good baseball regardless of who plays, wins or loses. If the Cardinals win, so much the better!
In addition to the World Series, my favorite Web Browser Firefox came out with a major update this week. Some of my computer time was spent setting up the browser to meet my wants and needs. The process was simple enough, but I kept getting side tracked trying it out and adding options to personalize it . It was fun to do.
In the meantime I am trying to keep this blog updated in between doing my assortment of Mom duties, taking time for email, knitting, crocheting, and living. Links have been added to the Towels, Holiday, Mop Covers and Knit Cloth sections. I will do more as time allows.

In the past few days there have been several items added to this site. I am making changes in the way I am classifying items. There are now categories for towels, both knitted and crocheted. I am not specifiying if they are hand or kitchen towels. That decision is left to the user of the pattern.
I am also not separating face and dish cloths. For this site, at this time, it is not feasible to do. If this offends anyone, please accept my apologies in advance.
I will eventually be adding some items for specific holidays. If you know of patterns for holidays that are not included, please let me know. I will not intentionally omit a holiday based on creed, religion or ethnic background. My goal is for this site to be a service for those of us who enjoy making hand made cloths and other items.
I have also been faced with the decision of whether or not to shorten the name a designer has given a pattern. There are times this seems to be needed in order to conserve space. If you are a designer and have been offended by my actions, please let me know. I do not mean to over ride your choice of name for your pattern. My motivation is simply to conserve space.
