Obviously it's been a while since I've posted anything. However, my blog still gets an interesting number of visitors, mostly looking at my patterns. I hear from you all occasionally about the dead links. I do not own the information on those dead pages, so I cannot reproduce their info here.
However, all is not lost!
Whenever I run into dead links anywhere on the Internet, I go to the Internet Archive. Just copy the dead link and paste it into the Archive's Wayback Machine. You will then get a list of dates that the site was archived. Just click on the latest date to see what the Archive saved. Sometimes the photos and other graphics don't show up, so then I either just reload the page or try one of the other dates.
I did go back to the patterns and updated certain links to go directly to an archived page.
