I finally managed to take pictures. The lighting isn't the best, but it shows the colors pretty well.

These are the ones that I received from froggmomma! I love them all- the smaller ones fit my hand nicely (not too big, not too small, but just right), and the lovely yellow one will be the perfect summer hand towel in the kitchen. With all of the grey skies we've been having, I need a little sunshine brightness in the kitchen! I'm also impressed with the nice and neat border on the red one (and the yellow one, too), because I can never get my dishcloth borders to look nice...



And, I may have photographed the back of the yellow one. It has fpdc on one side, which gives it a spike-stitch look on the back side. I like both sides!

And, I know that froggmomma is in the process of moving, and she received a bit ago, so I'm going to post a picture of what I sent to her.



The white w/stripes is a small version of Lion Brand's Dorothea Dishtowel, the striped one is called Loop to Loop and the third one is called Lacy Honeycomb. All of them were made with Lion Brand Cotton (white) and Sugar N' Cream Self-Striping (but I can't find the label to tell you the color). I was really happy to see how well it made the stripes on the Loop to Loop cloth!

These are my pretty wash cloths in awesome bright happy colors! Then she sent me some real awesome napkins/not papertowels. These are really neat and I have never thought of making them. Love the prints she picked as well!

Thanks April for a great package!

Thenutmeg2000, I love the wash cloths you received, especially the square one (I'd love to know where you got the pattern, DontdresslikeApril!). And, sweet set of napkins, too!

Here is my beautiful package from IdlersDesign.  The cloths are so nice...they are made from an antibacterial cotton, how cool is that?!  Cheesy

I told her that I was joining this (at least partly) for my mom because she loves knit and crocheted dishcloths and i don't make them for her nearly as much as i should.  Embarrassed  The only problem is that i am going to have a hard time sharing these!

Then she sent a couple awesome extras...a cloth diaper (i have never tried anything fancier than a plain cloth diaper and pins) and a childrens book...my partner is from the Netherlands as are a couple people close to us so this will be wonderful for the kids to share with them (and entertaining to listen to me reading in a language i don't know)!

Thank you so much for such a great package!

Here is Rosie helping open the package.  Who needs scissors?   Roll Eyes

I received from smittenheart today. 
They are very lovely and she included some pine soap and a small pot of face scrub.  My camera died before I could take pictures of those.  Once it is charged I will update this post with those pictures.  Thank you smittenheart.
