PIF Exchange....

I participated in a PIF exchange back here. This is a sneak peak at the pressy that I'm sending out to Carolyn over at Comfy & Cosy. Hopefully receiving it makes her day... ;)
Now, only 2 more people to make pressies for and my round of the PIF is over... I'm hoping to have them mailed out sometime next week, fingers crossed...

I'm totally hooked on making washcloths at the moment... Here are my latest 2, both crochet and both made with the most divine yarn from Moda Vera called Bamboo/Cotton... I'll definitely be using this yarn again, it's gorgeous!!!! The first washcloth is called the Tulip Stitch Cloth and you can find the free pattern here.And the second wash cloth is called the Blossom Stitch Cloth and you can find the free pattern here.
I'll definitely be making the Tulip Stitch Cloth again it turned out absolutely beautiful!!!! Perfect for using as a face washer... The Blossom Stitch Cloth was a little tricky as there wasn't any instructions on how to do the picot edge. I did the best I could with the little crocheting knowledge I have...

Take care everyone and have a lovely weekend full of crafty goodness... ;)

  1. I love your blog!!
    Little Princess is darling!


    Oh, your cloths are just beautiful!! The yarn looks wonderfully soft! I've never tried that yarn...I must have it now! :)

    Your picots are flawless on Blossom & thanks a million for your completely objective way of suggesting, "This gal needs to give more directions in them patterns!"
    LOL!! I'm such a bonehead; I didn't think about adding that..heads-up is a good thing!!
    Again, thank you!!! ...off to remedy that now..

  2. The face cloths are lovely. Looks like a nice yarn, the stitch definition is great and I bet the bamboo content makes it extra soft.

    Your crocheted cloths are beautiful. I use the bamboo/cotton and I think it is just perfect for face cloths.

  5. What a lovely package for the reciever to get in her mail box. Lovely wash clothes, I can't crochet or knit to save myself..... probably a good thing, otherwise I'd have more ufo's than you could poke a stick at.
