Candy, those dishcloths are so pretty! I'm making a dishcloth right now, and I hopefully will finish it in the next few days.

Those are really cute - I have a dishcloth that I started but I am such a slow knitter that it isn't very rewarding so it sits in my knitting basket, waiting....
Today I think I'm going to cut out more aprons - I'm on an apron jag - and maybe sew a couple. That's after I finish my chores:)

Candy, those dishcloths are soo cute!! I love peaches n creams yarns! There the best! I have started all over again with my dish clothes because I did not like how they turned out. So I still have 90 to make but they are look so much better and are soo cute!! I had to take 40 of them out. :( But I want to do a good job and I new I could do better. :)

Hugs,

Joanna,

I am thinking of the Garden Trellis Dishtowels in the MJ Stitching Room book. They look pretty cute!

I just finished up a tulip stitch dishcloth and traced out a pattern for a tea towel embroidery. I am on the hunt tonight to find my embroidery hoop. Where did it get to?! lol

I just finished a scarf for a fundraiser at my school today. Hopefully I will start my second dishcloth tomorrow if I don't get too much homework.

Thanks Channah! I might make one more scarf, a red and black one, as those are our school colors. My Mom actually came up with the idea, and I think it is logical. Now I have to find red and black yarn... I'll keep you posted!

Gosh! You all are so busy and industrious. And the work I got to see was gorgeous. Thank you for sharing. I am making yo-yos for a quilt in between all the chaos that is normal life here at our house. :-)

Joanna,

I love seeing there's another Farm Girl member from NH. Where exactly are you located? Your website CountryCents is wonderful, as are your products. I live in central NH. Do you have a shop or just the website?

Joanna, that farmgirl scarf would look very nice on my bald head. Since I lost my hair to chemo I have to wear something all the time or my head gets cold. What are your measurements for that scarf so I could possibly make one, and also the size of the beads.

I am working on two samplers. One is a freebie from Blackbird. The other is a repro sampler from SANQ.

I will be putting new photos on my blog soon.

Finally got back into the sewing room after spring cleaning and wedding preparations (for my daughter in FL). I sewed her garter (a Superman theme--don't ask!), and ring bearer pillow. When we return after Easter I'm starting on my spring and summer projects. I have too many ideas in my head and not enough time! Dianne
