#59 Coordinates with the last day of February!!! Yaah we are officially one sixth of the way done with our challenge at this point. It has been a lot of work but I think it will be well worth all the effort for everyone. Wendi came up with the clever name for this dishcloth. She gave me the choice of Climbing Violet or Happy Wanderer. Both were good but I had to choose.
