Here are my awesome cloths from MandyLikesPie:

The orange is so cute and cheerful, I love it!  And I am really impressed with the basketweave.  It's crocheted and really does look like real basketweave.  I am definitely going to have to learn this stitch, because I want about a thousand more of these. I haven't tried it out yet (too pretty), but it feels like it will be very scrubby. Here's a close-up, I wish I took better pictures:)

And the great orange:

She also sent me some mechanical pencils, since I put in my profile how much I love them.  I'd forgotten about that, but it's true, I really do love mechanical pencils and these are really nice.  And they coordinate with my dishcloths Smiley

Thanks so much, Mandy!  This was a really fun swap and I love these dishcloths Smiley  And thanks to kayrun for organizing!  I hope we do another round soon.

Wow, Mandylikespie, you did an awesome job!  I love the citrus dishcloth! It's sooo unique.  

But I have goodies of my own!  I just got my package in today from lapoli!  She did an amazing job and truly spoiled me.  When I found out I got her as a swap partner I asked her if she wouldn't mind making one dishcloth for my Mother and one for me... and she was sooo sweet about it!  Not only did she make one for me and one for my Mother.. but she made two for me and Three! for my Mother!  I know.. I know.. I got spoiled! lol  She also included this set of the most adorable little soaps and they just so happen to smell very yummy!  Okay.. enough gabbing! ... here are the pics!

Here's a good overall pic of everything together

Here's a closer pic of some of the detail on one of my favorite dishcloths!  Don't you just love the scallop trim??

And here's my favorite!.. I love love love the color combo of aqua and pink and I adore the design on this one.. kind of like a basketweave.. it's beautiful!

And here's an upclose view of the cute little soaps.  

Thank you so so so so much Lapoli!  You are such an amazing partner.  I hope you love everything you get, too!  And thank you so much for making some dishcloths for my Mother.  I know she is going to absolutely LOVE them!

Wow you got some lovely dishcloths amyracinrose.  I can't wait to see the rest of the dishcloths

Awesome dishcloths, lapoli! I really like the knitted brick cloth.

Here is a link to the basketweave cloth pattern that I made for wootwoot, if anyone is interested in giving it a try. It's so easy but looks so pretty when it's finished! I made one for me too the other night.  Smiley http://www.jimsyldesign.com/dishbout/cpatterns/basketweave.html

Photos of my goodies from wootwoot to come tonight!
