    What has happened to the heading showing the number of the dishcloth as well as the name of the dishcloth? On numbers 113 and 114, the numbers do not show ~~ only the names.

    I haven’t decided yet if I like the new format. Guess I’ll get used to it though ~ just different.

    Thanks.

    Lovely Linda, I for one do not care for not having the
    same heading as the others, as it showed them as being part of the Dishcloth challenge. Now it just looks like a pattern from anywhere. Just my opinion.

    i agree with both Lovely Linda and Dorothy42. I am compensating for the blah heading by doing a copy of the number and name before i actually click on my pdf request and then pasting it before i save.
