Crochet Dishclothes

 I love to read, but I cannot read in a moving vehicle without getting sick.  Thus, I often crochet.  I really like this pattern and it presents a good opportunity to use up little bits of colored cotton without throwing it out.  The free pattern is available at ravelry under doni-speigle.  The pattern is mostly single and double crochet, so it really isn't difficult for someone familar with crocheting.

Swap Received from Fab Little Pincushion Swap

 This is the most adorable pincushion that I received from Beachgirl Sews.  The pincushion is filled with walnut shells and that is new to me.  I love the weight that the shells provide.  She also included all the pretty pins, needles, and the patriotic fabric.  My dad is a veteran so we usually attend our community Memorial Day program; however, this year we went to my niece's graduation and Memorial Day became a traveling day.  When I was in a small fabric shop yesterday, I looked at some patriotic fabric and considered buying it, but decided not to.  So it was an absolute treat to get home and find a package with a beautiful scrappy pincushion with bits of linen and handstitching (my faves) along with the other treats.  Do you see the candy that Beachgirl Sews included?  Nope, it's already gone - my kids were super-surprised they had a treat in the box too.
