I'm crocheting the dishcloths and just love the colors in this varigated cotton yarn.

Should I make 2 for each set or just one?

I need to go pull out the projects I have cut out for this swap. I go back to school August 17. I love the crochet dish cloths. I think 1 is okay.

Works for me - need to think about the tag for these and then get going on my other stuff - which means I need to rearrange my sewing room space - going through a reorganization anyway.

Good morning, ladies. Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Shereel and Maueueno, you two are so AWESOME! All the work you do with the kids - sounds like you both go above and beyond. And you're always so busy!

Happy crafting!

Mahalo Christina!! I normally don't speak for others, however in this case I am pretty sure our responses would be the same. Passion is so easy to follow when we get to work with our children and their families. We are the ones blessed - each and every day. Mahalo for your comments - it reinforces what we do!!

Well, I have finally decided I will be making jewelry frames for one of my spots. It's framed fabric that you can sit on a dresser or table top and pop your earrings onto, etc.

Have a great day everyone. I'm off to look for more tagged textile inspiration!

I too am doing the dishcloths...I have 2 for each set and they are knit...I love making them...the one pattern that i love to make and always go back to is "granny's favorite" it starts with 4 stitches--add one on each row until you get to 44 stitches and then decrease one each row...no marking off of the rows you had completed...pattern is embedded in my brain...very easy...

I too love that varigated yarn so much some of the colors are oh so glorious ....

and i have the perfect idea for the tags...I won't be workign on them until the end of june but it will be fun to create...

Totally up to you! I love them too, my mom always made them when I was little, and I think they are so much stronger and absorbent than anything I've gotten at stores!

Hi Pam! And I love having you join them, love to see your creations every time! I have two books on fabric bowls and all the supplies and have had them for 7 years now but not tried them! So I can't wait to see your creations and then hoping they will inspire me to finally try them!! I love the way they look just am chicken to sit and do them and never seem to have the time to just sit and sew anymore...

Gotta try fabric bowls - that sounds like so much fun!!

Okay - so I will do my dishcloths in pairs also - feels better that way. Have made the diagonal knit ones and love how they look and feel - cannot wait to see yours.

Reality strikes today - summer school starts and goes for the whole summer!! And I love it - would not know what to do with a summer off!!

Have a great day everyone!!

Hi, ladies! Susan, it sounds like everyone is busy crafting or at least planning what to craft! I've been busy with the garden today and now that things are starting to come on and our CSA share has started I've been busy preparing food every day it seems... But soooo nice to have fresh produce! I almost forgot how much work it is though, lol... Yesterday I pitted cherries for an hour and had stained hands all day. Washed mustard greens for another hour and cooked them down. Today we've picked more cherries and made a shortcake to use some of the strawberries... I can't remember what else, but need to go plant more beans and figure out more uses for lemon balm. Hope all is well with you ladies!

Oh, sounds absolutely delicious, Christina! I miss our CSA here, I didn't join this year since we are growing so much ourselves... but of course, I don't have a greenhouse (YET!) so I have to wait for mine til later in the summer...

I worked on these for a little while yesterday-I needed a break from sewing on the blessing dress. I really should have sewn table toppers for 2 weddings I need in 2 weeks. It's hot here in the 90's.

Good morning fellow swappers! JCI

I hope you all have a peace filled Sunday. Today I feel like cleaning the house from attic to basement! Soooo, off I go! I may only make it thru the 1st floor and the bottom floor (split foyer layout) may suffer - like always! LOL BUT, it's the thought that counts, right??

Okay, while I still have the feeling, I must get my groove on. Have a super week!

Well, I did get some cleaning done - but not nearly as much as I wanted. Stopped to play with wild man - he's gonna be 8 only once....he's more important that having a spotless house!

JCI to say good morning.

Wow, you crafters have been busy! My tagged textile project is still in my head.

I haven't had a chance to read back on all the posts I've missed, but I saw the words fabric bowls! I used to make fabric bowls by cutting a circle (or square) of fabric, drenching it with fabric stiffner and shapping it over the bottom of a small serving bowl to dry! Hmmm...may have to try that again after I retire!

I've been watching this thread for a while now- it really looks like fun! I got a new sewing machine for Mother's Day so I guess I'll have to take 2 spots. ;o) Now it's off to my Pinterest boards to see what I want to make!

1 spot is finished=I changed my mind because I found ribbon with fabric to match, so I made zippered pouches with matching tissue holders, key fob and chap stick fob. They are polka dot and owl fabric with the tags made using the SU owl punch.
The tote bags need the straps finished. I haven't looked in the box with the curling iron/flat iron fabric I but know there quit a few almost finished- they will all be different fabric .so I need to decide what to do about the tags

I've finished my second spot - sewing companions. One more spot and the tags to finish.
