#73 Diamond Crochet Dishcloth

Monday March 14 – This lovely dishcloth was designed by crochet designer Lori Zeller.  Lori also designed dishcloth #65 Round Sunshine Crochet Dishcloth and dishcloth #69 Nine-Patch Crochet Dishcloth
We still have not heard anything from Guinness Book of World Records.  They did say 4 weeks but when I visited the website it said 4-6 weeks or longer.  As soon as we hear from them we can put together the prizes for the Challenge.
Lori – Thank you for sharing your wonderful dishcloth designs with us and becoming part of the Dishcloth-a-Day Challenge. – Maggie
