#147 Beach Stripes Crochet Dishcloth – Maggie Weldon Maggies Crochet

Friday May 27, 2011
We are having a wonderful May at Maggie’s Crochet.  Today we put up a “May Happy Times” list.  Everyone writes down good stuff that has happened on a post it and then we add it to the list on the wall.  Next week we will have a party to celebrate.
It’s a good idea to stop and think about all the “good stuff” we have to be grateful for.  I am grateful for you and your interest in our crochet designs – thank you.
Follow me onto dishcloth #148 and the rest of the story…

    I am having so much fun looking at the new dishclothes each day. What talented people out there. I love the display!
    I have been downloading all the patterns, and I plan on making at least one of each, most likely, two or three of each for friends and family.
    I have an idea mulling in my mind for a dishcloth, I plan on submitting it soon.

    Thanks for all these wonderful ideas and dishclothes.
