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.
I deleted a blog today before posting a note anywhere that this would happen. The blog was:Favorite Links @ http://dcm2.wordpress.com/
It has been replaced with:Fiber Links
Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

Today I pause for a few moments and remember the events that took place on this date in 1963 at 12:30 pm CST. It was at that time forty three years ago when John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.
This was an event that is embedded in my mind’s eye as though it were only yesterday. I was in seventh grade Study Hall at the local Junior High School when the announcement was made that the President had been shot and killed. I recall the sense of sadness that an era had ended and knew life would never be the same for my country. This sounds strange, but it is true.
I vividly recall watching and listening to the events of the following days unfold.Most fascinating to me was the orderly transferal of authority to Vice President Lyndon Johnson. This was living history. No classroom lesson could have taught about the Democratic process better than this.
My family was one of many who watched the public funeral on our black and white television. I recall silence as the caisson carried his body to lie in state at the Capitol.It seemed unreal.I recall the pictures of his children watching the procession. A sense of shock and sadness prevailed.
Life has not been the same for many of us after those four days in November, 1963, when time stood still.
Today at 12:30 pm, I will stand still in remembrance of John Fitzgerald Kennedy; of what was and could have have been.
Will you do the same?
Sometime between last night and this morning this blog surpassed having 20,000 hits. Wow!!
My response is to say Thank You to each of you who find this blog useful. Normally I am a person of many words. Today this is not so. My wildest dreams for this blog have been exceeded. It is my sincere hope that you will continue to use this as a resource.

I have added a new page this evening. It is devoted to special items that have a place in this blog, but for which there is no other category. It is a work in progress and will be updated as patterns for it are found.
In the past week there have been updates to the Towels and Potholders pages.
