This is the beautiful cloth and awesome package I received from memeto12 in the Dishcloth Dozen swap. I will post a picture of the cute sewing tin she sent me in my next post. I am hiding it from granddaughter # 3. She keeps trying to take it home!
This beautiful cloth is from Guiness Goddess - as you can see it is one of my favorite things - a lighthouse dishcloth! The chocolates are also one of my favorite things - yummmm.
This picture of all 11 cloths does not do justice to the wonderful work everyone did! I will be posting a better picture soon - of all the cloths hanging up on a mini clothesline with my mimi clothes pins!

THESE ARE THE CUTEST MINI CLOTHS PINS. I TOLD THE MEMBERS OF THE DISHCLOTH SWAP THAT I WAS THINKING OF HANGING MY DISHCLOTHS UP ON A MINI CLOTHS LINE TO DISPLAY AND KAREN AND JESSICA SENT ME THESE! THEY ARE THE AWESOME AND I CAN'T WAIT TO HANG THEM UP
THEY ALSO SENT ME SOME DARK CHOCOLATE (MMM), CRANBERRY HOT COCOA, CANDLE, LIGHTHOUSE NAPKINS AND JOURNAL !
WHAT A WONDERFUL SURPRISE FROM CANADA!
I DIDN'T REALIZE THAT THESE 2 DISHCLOTHS HAD NOT BEEN POSTED YET! SORRY! AND THEY CAME ALL THE WAY FROM CANADA!
THIS LIGHTHOUSE CLOTH IS FROM KAREN. IT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PATTERNS! I MADE THIS FOR SOMEONE ELSE BUT HAVE NEVER MADE ONE FOR MYSELF! NOW, THANKS TO KAREN I HAVE MY OWN!
YOU CAN SEE THE DETAIL BETTER IF YOU CLICK ON THESE CLOTHS. THEY ARE BOTH AWESOME BUT THE DETAIL DOESN'T ALWAYS SHOW UP ON THE COMPUTER.
AND ISN'T THIS ONE FROM JESSICA GREAT! THE KITTY IS SO CUTE! I WILL HAVE TO HIDE IT FROM THE GRANDKIDS! THEY LOVE KITTIES ALSO.
MY OWN KITTY IS IN TROUBLE TODAY - SHE KEEPS TRYING TO DRINK OUT OF THE FISHBOWL! THE FISH DOES NOT APPRECIATE THIS AT ALL!
HOPE EVERYONE IS STAYING WARM. WILL POST MORE DISHCLOTHS AS THEY COME IN.
HERE ARE PICTURES OF THE BEAUTIFUL DISHCLOTH I HAVE RECEIVED SO FAR IN THE DIRTY DOZEN EXCHANGE! AREN'T THEY GREAT!
THIS IS THE LATEST ADDITION TO MY COLLECTION THAT I RECEIVED YESTERDAY FROM MAGGIE!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE BEAUTIFUL DISHCLOTH AND THE TEA AND CANDY. I TRIED THE TEA LAST NIGHT - IT WAS DELICIOUS!
MY BF LOOKED AT THE CLOTH AND SAID "WOW! A ST. LOUIS BLUES DISHCLOTH". WE WENT TO SEE THE BOSTON BRUINS PLAY THE ST LOUIS BLUES IN BOSTON LAST MONDAY SO IT WAS A FUNNY COINCIDENCE!
I LOVE THE FEATHER AND FAN DESIGN - AND THE COLORS REMIND ME OF SPRING!
THANK YOU AGAIN TO EVERYONE FOR ALL THE AWESOME DISHCLOTHS!
