I have finished up many, many more crocheted dishcloths. I ran a strand of size 10 crochet thread through out most of my work. My church's kitchen is nearly as old as I am, complete with the olive green floors. This way, I have the one color, brown, tying every dishcloth and eventual hotpad together with the colors of the floor.
The others are for my mom, because she is the only one who never begs me for any thing. And because she still helps take care of my entire family.
I found this adorable pattern in Stitch Spring 2012 where you make a quilt block and then cut it down into the shape of a flying-disk-like toy. Cut out two, made one and decided I just can not cut the second square.
Can you see the size of the square and the finished size of the FDLtoy? Why, oh why did the directions call for making such a HUGE square if all you were going to do is trim away most of it?
Still working on those first pair of socks of the year. *sigh*
So now I am stuck with a lumpy 8 inch disk and a 13 inch square from scraps that I am tired of looking at.
