SATURDAY JULY 2, 2011

Designer Carol Showers wrote: “This big turkey started out as a small turkey coaster which I created in 1982 for my sister-in-law, who wanted unique coasters for her Thanksgiving Dinner table. I am also going to revise this pattern again to make turkey placemats for my Thanksgiving Table. I am really enjoying the neat patterns in the Dishcloth Challenge. It does keep me busy.”
Thank you Carol for joining the Dishcloth-A-Day Challenge!
