Sorry for the delay in posting photos!  Life has been super busy this week.  I have came home from work and just collapsed!
First the wonderful scrubbies that LovieDovieAnn sent to me.  I confess, I did not know what a scrubbie was...  Roll Eyes  I just love them all!  
First a group shot...

A close up of the cherry..

Square.. a version of a granny square?

Now how cool is this?  I love the buttons.  A towell hanger!  

A neat little watermelon scrubbie!

LovieDovieAnn asked me to post the photos of the cloths I sent her.  I did not happen to take one of the acrylic scrubber.. (Or my version of a scrubber!)

And a closer look..

What a fun little swap this was!  I loved it!

I received a wonderful package from Norahkate this morning:

A beautiful 'wall' cloth (wish I could knit!) and an apple scrubbie:

and she sent along some crochet hooks and yarn (we agreed on sending extras)

(OMG such big skeins of thick cotton yarn are so hard to find here!)

An apple (or is it a tomato?  Wink) scrubbie that has lots of structure:

A bath puff, that was claimed immediately by my son:

And a big, soft and thick dish cloth that is already in use as potholder (the cat agrees):

Thanks Norahkate for all the beautiful things!

I received from Granny Dragon! Came home from work and it was waiting for me on the steps. So happy!

Granny Dragon made me four cloths instead of the two we promised! She spoiled this little newbie!

Onto the pictures!

The blue one has a little bunny on it and the cream has little hearts on it. I have to say, I love the feel of knit! I need to wash these before I use them, though, as Granny Dragon's animals must have gotten into them. *sniff* But once they are washed, I am going to have a blast with these!

Also, as Granny Dragon's internet is down, I thought I would post the two cloths I made for her.

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 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!

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.
