Tomorrow, Linda and I are road tripping to a town 30-or-so miles to the west. Sadly, a quilt shop is closing its doors, and we're going to head there to check out what's included in the 40-75% sales. We're going to enjoy the day regardless if we come away with any great deals or not. School is right around the corner (she teaches in the 3-6 wing of our district's school building), and we've never road tripped together before. I'm sure the day away will be enjoyed by both of us, and we'll do our best to leave the school-related chatter to a minimum ;)
Last Friday, my parents made a detour for a short visit with us before traveling on to their weekend getaway at a neighbor's cabin 'up north.' As grandparents often do, they had purchased some school supplies/shoes/clothes for the girls that needed to be delivered. (And yes! My sister was involved with that shopping spree as well. The family truly helps out with our girls so much!!!)
I'm not exactly sure how one of my crocheted dishcloths ended up as the topic of conversation, but Mom hinted about wanting some for Christmas. I sent her on her way with a couple that I had in my linen drawer; I'm not a bit fan of the cotton yarn dishcloths; at least the YARNS that I've tried so far -- maybe she'll end up liking them more than me. There really IS a difference in yarns, and I haven't found a yarn I like yet for dishcloths.
With another ball of Sugar 'n Cream left in my stash, I made up another cloth with a new pattern (Granny Dishcloth). I LIKE this pattern!!! Now to just find the right yarn.
