Mitered Blossom Dishcloth | Crochet Pattern Listed!

The Mitered Dishcloth Crochet Pattern is now listed!
and can be found at the
Apple Blossom Dreams
Etsy shop by clicking here.

I love these dishcloths for holiday gift giving.

These Mitered Blossom Dishcloths are so fun to make, keep and to gift. 
The pattern includes dozens upon dozens of step-by-step photos, as well as a shortened version 
AND four video links for extra added assistance. 
Once you make a few for yourself you will likely find your friends and family requesting them. 

The really great thing about using these as a dishcloth is that, after use,

 simply rinse and wring them thoroughly
 then hang them from a hook by the sink or from the faucet
 with that convenient handle; 
a drying technique keeps them smelling fresh and resisting germs.

These were crocheted in Scheepjes Catona yarn.
Clicking here will direct you to where you can purchase this beautiful yarn
that comes in every color imaginable. 
This yarn keeps its color longer than any other yarn I have used for dishcloths in the past.

These dishcloths have been a real hit among those that have received them as gifts,

 especially with the added thoughtfulness of coordinating the colors with the recipients kitchen,
 or paired with a bar soap or liquid soap. 

This has been the most fun I've had writing a pattern!
It filled the "Koselig Hekler Hus" with lots of

Santorini and Naxos

It's been too long since I've posted.
I hope you have been well!

I've been a little preoccupied lately as I have been very fortunate to travel to the Greek Isles
with my daughter, Little Bug, for a "Mamma Mia" trip.

What beautiful islands of nature's and man's artistry:

Now, I so want to crochet a Bougainvillea something or the other:

And check out this crocheted arbor valance:
 Here's a close-up:
This gives me I need anymore. Ack!

And we found a 24 hour bakery...
We were in Seventh Heaven!!!

We had such a good time and
 I am so grateful for this trip of a
 lifetime to celebrate Little Bug's 30th Birthday!

But I'm back at the Koselig Hekler Hus, and have written the pattern for the
Mitered Blossom Dishcloth:
It's been a long time coming!
This pattern is now available and can be found by clicking here.

I hope you've had many days of
