Throughout the summer I've been dabbling with different thread projects. Keeping them short and sweet helps to ensure that I'll stay interested and actually follow through to the end! I was working on the review of the book 100 Colorful Granny Squares to Crochet which meant that I tried out several of the patterns. I made some with worsted cotton and more with cotton thread. It didn't take long for a collection to develop. They were just too pretty to leave in a basket, so I bought a bunch of plain white washcloths and hand towels to embellish. Stitching one square to each washcloth worked beautifully (you can see how I did it in this post).
I wanted to try something different with the towels. Flipping through my library of books and magazines I came across a pattern for lace edging that was perfect - the Dolly Dish Towels in the Sept/Oct 2012 issue of Crochet Today.
That's all for now. Thanks so much for stopping by and spending a bit of your day with me.
Until next time friends,
Be Blessed and Stitch & Read with Love!
