“I have been crocheting since I was a teenager. Crocheting is so relaxing. Short projects are my favorite and I love that I can alter a pattern and colors to suit me. This is my first design and it is gathered together by the many patterns I have used over the years. Thoughts of Spring inspired this dishcloth as I made it in the middle of a snowstorm! I make my living with my website, www.rhinestonedogcollars.net. I design all of the items on the site. I love creating!”
Thank you for designing this dishcloth. It is beautiful! – Maggie.
