Spread a Little Love

Yesterday I sorted through my basket of projects and discovered that I now have 35 crocheted dishcloths.
More than enough to start the gift giving.
I'm still working on my pay it forward gifts.
And I've joined an "I Love Hearts Swap" hosted by Shelley at all4meggymoo.
She's accepting participants until the 14th if you are interested.
So now I've moved on to making sweet little hearts.
Maaike at Creajjion posted an open publishing magazine
Gatherings: The White Issue which is where you can find the heart pattern (p. 126).
And since February will be here before you know it, mark your calendars for the 1st through the 14th.
Nancy at Sugar Lump Studios will be posting a daily "heartfelt" project idea to get you in the mood for Valentine's Day.

Wishing you a lovely, love-filled day!

At the rate you are completing your crocheting projects you will de-stash your yarn in no time. Your gift cupboard is really filling up. Love the little crocheted hearts. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

Hi, Tammy,
I love hearts and I love Valentine's Day. Your sweet pink crocheted hearts are so pretty! I ordered some crocheted dish cloths from etsy. They are wonderful!! I just throw them in the washing machine. They retain their size and shape beautifully. I know your friends and family will enjoy the ones you make. I am wishing you and your family a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year! Vicki

Hi Tammy.. I was inspired to do another wash cloth - mine have ridges on them.. I posted the pattern on my blog.. come and see. I will go look at that heart pattern now. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Yvonne said...

A lot going on! Isn't that wonderful! so many wonderful people in blogland! Love the little heart and all the colorful cloths.

Hi Tammy, I cannot believe how many cloths u have made its wonderful!
Your comment hasn't gone through on the heart swap blog, so I cannot see your entry can you comment again for me please to make sure you are included.
thank you.

Hindustanka said...

this is really great that you found time to crochet all those! :) love the look of the pile of dish cloths!
heart...well, I'm in a mood to crochet few as well:)take care!Anna

Sam I Am...... said...

Holy cow Batman! You could sew them altogether and have a huge afghan! LOL! They are fun to crochet....maybe you should branch over to potholders now. I just started a new crochet project today but again...a blankie....I should work smaller projects and then maybe I'd have more finished ones! LOL! Now, that's a thought!

Sam I Am...... said...

Yes! Time for hearts! Those are so cute. I'll have to jump over to see the pattern. A nice heart banner would be nice or hang them on branches like I did my little flowers last summer. Yours are just darling!

Catherine said...

I love your pile of crocheted dishcloths and those sweet hearts also. You are so quick with your crochet Tammy I must practice some more and stop procrastinating too:) Wishing you a wonderful week.
