Friends & Finished Projects

I signed up for a dishcloth swap on one of my Ravely groups & got partnered up with the ever amazing Grace.

I got my wonderful package from Grace this weekend. And what a great package!!She sent 2 wonderful cloths, 2 scrubbies, a pretty card, wonderful lip butter (tastes as good at it feels!), a funny "I'd rather be knitting" notepad, an Elephant Poo Poo paper notepad (how funny is that? Paper made from elephant poo! It's not stinky though. LOL), an adorable angel made from dish towels & a hot pad (it's a shame to undo it, so cute!), and a gorgeous handmade bracelet. Did you make that bracelet Grace? I forgot to ask you. It's just lovely!!

Thanks so much Grace, I love everything!! It was an amazing package & just made my whole weekend. :) Dontcha just love a great swap partner? And I knew that my friend Grace would be just that.

Here are a couple of my most recent finished projects. I sent these to Grace in her package.

Another couple great patterns from Harvest Moon Designs. The first one is the Sunshine in the Valleys cloth. Loved this pattern!! I can see more of these in my future.This second one is the Tiki Time cloth. I love the end result of this one too.

These cute little scrubbies were knit from acrylic yarn using the Wishy Washy Fishy Tawashi pattern. These were quick & fun to make.

We also had some of our out of town friends come in for a visit this weekend. So we spent Saturday on the bike riding around in the nice weather. Luckily we dodged any rain showers in the area. We ate a wonderful dinner at Crab Catchers restaurant, sitting on the deck by the waterway. Enjoying friends we don't see often enough, a few beers, shrimp burgers, good music, and the salty breeze coming off the waterway. Sometimes I forget what a wonderful place we live at here on the coast. Lots of laughs were shared & we got home really late. So today has been a lazy day for the most part.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
