Just a couple of things I've been up to...

I know I've been kinda quiet here on the blog, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. :)

I have been knitting dishcloths. New designs and trying out different patterns from a book I bought a few weeks ago. I am loving using Motif pattern's for cloths! I have also made a square cloth using short rows. I may put that pattern up here later this week.

Today, Lianne and I went to Spotlight. There was a sale on and I'm a sucker for a sale. Unfortunately for me, the craft stuff wasn't discounted. :( I bought the april issue of "get creative", which had some very neat and easy pincushions in it. We made them in about 20 minutes! I got the fabric for mine from a really neat retro dress that I found earlier at "Mr. Bo Jumbles". Mr B. J. is a really awesome recycled clothing shop here in Manukau. You buy clothes and other items by the kilo!!! I have had some really spectacular finds there before. I especially go just for items I can craft with!

On the weekend I made Lianne this cute little bag. Inside I put a ball of cotton yarn and some 4mm needles. YES! I have now infected someone else with the dishcloth bug!!! LOL! On this topic, I am always amazed at how many people just don't want to use my dishcloths. They're too pretty, they say... hmmmm! Too Pretty? I personally LOVE to use pretty things on the jobs I most hate, like the dishes... Still, I cant convince them... Once you use one you'll never go back, I say... Even that doesn't work... I know I'll NEVER go back to the old chux cloth!!!
