I recieved from mommy2tnk yesterday!  It was a gorgeous package, and it smelled divine!

Here's how it looked when I pulled it out of the package! (That's one of my Fiesta pieces in the back Smiley)

Here's the dishcloths and the absoulutely wonderful smelling soap, Mrs. Meyers Lemon Verbena!  I LOVE citrus smelling soap!  The discloth on the left is biased knitted and the one on the left has a house in the middle with a seed stitch border!  I also recieved a discloth book!  I'm already for the next round!

Thanks mommy2tnk, I love everything!  Your second cloth, that couldn't fit in the package is on it's way!
