I REALY LIKE THIS PATTERN IHAVE MADE TWO OF REALLY FAST. MARY DODDS
Just Beautiful and it gave me flowery memories of your bottlecap trivets but making a few today. Thank you as always!
Nice pattern’s, print is to small…..
Actually, I love so many of these dishclothes, if I wrote a comment for every one that I really liked or planned to make, I’d have writer’s cramp! This one attracted me immediately because I could not only see it being easy to hold and use, but I could picture it hanging up drying or even being held in the wash-worn hands and making the person using it/viewing it feeling happier, lighter, as if looking at a beautiful flower on a sunny spring day. What more could you ask for while doing a mundane task like washing dishes?
In about a week or two I’ll be opening my new web site where you’ll be able to buy, sell, and trade all types of needlework patterns as well as kits, yarn, tools, etc. So keep checking and eventually it will be up and running. It will be located at: http://www.usingagainpatterns.org. Hope to see you soon.
