I have removed several dead links this evening. It was hard to do because most of them were links to patterns on the Peaches and Creme website. I discovered it was completely removed a few weeks ago and have deliberately taken my time to deal links to the patterns from it. There are a couple links still up because I am looking for current links to those patterns. If there are none, then they will also be removed in the next few days. In the scope of life and history, companies come and go, but this was one of my favorite sources of yarn and patterns.
On a more cheerful note, I will be adding new links over the next few days. I will keep you informed of the changes.
Thank you for reading and have a good night!

The Bath Sets Page was updated today. There were several dead links from sites which are no longer available or which have had patterns removed from them. I will be scouring the internet in the upcoming days and weeks for more links to add.
Please remember to make a copy of patterns you like just in case the original site or the patterns do not remain available for your use. It is a good idea to save a copy on paper and in a document stored on at least one safe place such as a backup drive or flash drive. When doing this, it is advisable to include the name of the designer of the pattern; the name of the website, and the web address ( URL ) of the website. This insures that you can give proper credit to the designer when making an item or telling others about the pattern. In addition, having this information available will make it easier to locate the pattern online in case there is a problem with the website. It will also help you locate the designer if needed at a future date.
Just in case you ever do need to look for a pattern that is no longer available for some reason, there is hope. By using the WayBack machine feature of the Web Archive you can type in the web address and search for the site. When doing this, be sure ” http:// ” appears only one time in the search bar. If it is there more than once your search stands a good chance of not succeeding. Please be aware that according to this page there can be a six to twenty four month delay in a site being accessible through this service.
