#342 Indian Summer Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet


Designer Joan Wautlet wrote: ” I am 79 years old. My mother died when I was seven. She was an avid crocheter. She made rugs out of something called ‘carpet warp’. I still have a bedspread she crocheted. She died before I could learn but I did in my early teens. I learned to knit before I learned to crochet. I was an army wife for 30 years and did a lot of travelling, raised two children. I belong to a group that crochets blankets for young mothers. I use some of the motifs from the dishcloth challenge to decorate my blankets. I mostly make things up as I go so I do not have patterns. My favorite is my angel blanket.”

Thank you Joan for joining the Dishcloth-A-Day Challenge!

    What a heart warming story and a really pretty dishcloth. It would make a lovely doily. I can’t imagine losing a mother at such a young age. I’m 60 and lost mine this past January. It has been a horrible adjustment that I wouldn’t wish on any child!
