Dish Cloths all decked out in a row


Here are the results of continued learning....The mistakes in this project doesn't really matter... it's going to be used and greatly appreciated by the user. :o) One thing they are 100% Cotton, so easy to wash and I can use Bleach on them..So while I learned I earned :o) (in other words I learned something and it wasn't a waste after I learned from it)...Don't know why I always have to explain myself twice...guess I feel like I don't do a good job the first time :o(
At first they looked like crap to me! but after doing the snipping here and there and cleaning them up a bit, they really look nice :o)

Ginny, they are perfectly beautiful. How can you wipe up kitchen messes with them? Just keep them out of the barbeque sauce, ok?

Deborah said...

I LOVE your dishclothes! I've been wanting to make some towels myself. What kind of cotton did you use?

Daisy said...

Ginny, you did a wonderful job on your dishcloths. I think they are very pretty. So nice of you and Cecil to work as a team with the cooking and cleaning up afterwards too. You are so talented with your handiwork. I enjoy hearing about your projects.

Daisy thanks for all the compliments! Cecil helps, because he knows I can make his life miserable :o) I'm wicked.
I've enjoyed the project and just wish I knew more ,,idea's are just popping up, if only I could capture them on the loom :o)Ladydi, sometimes I think Cecil wipes the floor he gets them so soiled :o( I keep bleach handy for the laundry. :o)
Deborah, I used Sugar and Cream! Next time I'll use a #10 reed.Ginny

Kathleen, your too funny! There might be some Texas Cotton in them , but none that I "Ginned" :o)
Then I would just look at them and nobody ever think about washing dishes with them....Ginny

Visiting you for the 1st time.We had a friend who used to make cotton dish clothes.I had one that I used for years!A great idea.I sure enjoyed looking at your food too.Those frying fish make me hungry...but I never heard of eatting fish heads.I bet it's a "southern thing".(I'm a Yankee;<)

Hi Cassie, welcome to my blog..fish head soup (stew) may be a Yankee and Southern thing , I had it being raised in Brooklyn,NY ,mostly Jewish, Irish and Italian families prepared it, Fish was the cheapest (meat) you could buy and sometimes the Fish Mongrel would give the heads free < saved a lot of families from being hungry.Here in the South it was called "Fish Mullen" , still fish head stew :o) Ginny
