A Little Swap....

This morning started off beautifully, the Sun was shining and there was only a slight breeze, it was a gorgeous day to be outside.... I harvested a heap of Italian parsley to add to my dry stocks....

And even managed to recycle an old rain water tank I found at our farm tip, turning it into 3 garden beds with the help of an angle grinder....With a little more soil and some mulch they'll be ready to house some lettuce, rocket and spring onions that I've been growing up in pots....

A day wouldn't be complete for me now would it without a little bit of knitting so here's another washcloth.....

This one's called 'Ears of Grain' and the pattern is a freebie from here.... I made it for a special blogger as a little thank-you for being such a sweetie, so Bec keep your eye on the mailbox as this one's headed your way.... *grin*......

With all of the washcloth making I've been doing of late it's made me think that maybe a little swap might be fun..... If anyone's interested here's what we'll do.... Swap 1 washcloth made any way you like. It can be knitted, crochet, quilted or sewn, the craft choice if purely up to you. Put a little bar of soap with your cloth or a treat costing no more than $5 and your swap parcel in complete.... Just leave a comment if you'd like to join in....

Take Care.... :)

  3. Your vegie pots look great, and I would probably even paint them if I had them. I am sure the vegies will love all that space to grow in. I love the new washcloth, and your daughter is growing up so quickly isnt she. She looks lovely in her little handknit cardigan too. A swap sounds great so count me in.

  4. I'd love to join in but I need a few pointers. Having never made a washcloth before what are the guidelines, size, pattern and wool type? Lucky you planning your Spring garden already. We are in hibernation for months and months still. Love Kate

  7. I can't seem to stop crocheting my favorite Tunisian Short Row cotton cloths, so I'd love to join in this swap. As long as the mailing time isn't too soon, and USA swappers are welcome, please count me in!

    Thanks!

  9. I was hoping to find something like that at our tip, not sure what I wanted it for now though.

    I have nominated you for an award, that you will find on my blog.

    I love the baby feet washer.

  10. Eeeeeek, look at that cute little baby in the background. I love your pretty washcloth again too. It's so funny -- in my reader was Donna's post about receiving your washcloth and your post was right under hers!
