It all started when I made a claim in the January Pinterest Swap and made these:

              

While shopping for the cotton for them, I saw lots of other skeins that I wanted so I bought them and made this plethora of cloths using 6 different patterns.  Some are gifts and some are for me.

   


   


     


   


   

April 3/12 - Still making cloths - most of these are for swaps or sold to my Mom so she can use them as presents.

Very nice work!  My faves are the light green and the peach colored ones.
But I always did love pastels!   There are some cool stitches there I need to learn, like the bright turq, pink and yellow cloth has. I'm sure it's not that hard, but how do you get the stitches to turn sideways in both directions???

That's my least favorite one because I found the edging kind of wonky but did get it figured out after a few tries.    The main cloth was simple, it's just a combination of chains, single and double crochets.  Here's a link to the pattern: http://foothillsofthegreatsmokymountains.blogspot.com/2008/03/tulip-stitch-cloth.html

The 5th one is for my soon-to-be daughter-in-law as part of her shower gift.

My favorite is the last one on the right - maybe because it's a pattern I'd never done before but also because I love that color combination.

I'm still on a cloth making spree and added 8 new pictures to the first post.  I keep saying I'm going to quit but then I find a new color I want to try.
