#131 Americana Crochet Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet

 

It has been fun to watch the idea of the crochet Dishcloth-a-Day challenge come to life.  We still need your help to make it to the finish line.  Please follow this link  https://bestfreecrochet.com/dishcloth-challenge/ to see how you can help.  We are looking for sponsors to help with the prizes.

I should have this posted by the end of the month.  Everyone will get something.

Follow me onto dishcloth #132 and the rest of the story…

    The Dishcloth each day is a wonderful idea. Whenever I
    decide to do each one, I make two, so I had a hot pad mat.
    Thank you for such delightful patterns, Maggie. Each one is a challenge.
