About a month before we moved to our house I decided to make some cute washcloths for our kitchen and powder room.
I made actually about 10 of them and decided I like them so much I'm going to make more for my bathroom and the kids bathroom next.
I have always liked making washcloths ... they are so cute and rewarding... A fast crochet or knit project and they also make great gifts. I have made several for friends and weddings ( and I have posted about it before).
This time I'm going to show you the ones I have made for my house and with it you will have a little idea of some of the tiny little decorating I have started in our house.
I was also visiting Gillian at her blog "Tales from a Happy House" ( I'm sorry I'm posting from my ipad and cannot link to her blog but go visit her adorable, inspirational blog if you have not yet). I was so, so inspired by the washcloths she made for Christmas gifts last year and I started one this morning ( the cream color one) but I was so eager to show you I didn't finish the edging yet. She edged hers in a different color and I loved it...I think I feel an inspiration to start my Christmas gifts ??? Noticed the blue one I'm starting tonight ??? The beautiful cotton was giving to me by my sweet friend Betsy from "The simple life of a Queen" ( go check her blog out if you haven't yet ... She makes amazing projects). The beautiful green washcloths that looks like a leaf you see next to the broccoli bowl were a gift to me from our builder, who has also become a great friend ... I just love them !
We are having really hot temperatures this week here in the NW and I have been making lots of salads and I find that I really, really enjoy cooking on my new kitchen ... Everything tastes better although I only have 1/2 of our kitchen gadgets unpacked ... Beautiful asparagus, great broccoli salad, nice steak, yummy vegetables for fajitas and a nice fish, rice and broccoli is what our menu consisted of this past week ... We are getting there.
Hope you are having a tremendous weekend and that summer is just a collection of happy moments and fun times for you.
Thanks for stopping by and for all your kind comments they make my day...
