Nothing much...

In lack of anything else to show you, I'll show you a pic of my newest Ballband dishcloth. I enjoy using the other two so much that I wanted more. They work a treat! And they look fab compared to tired old "normal" dish cloths. I used variegated blue/green cotton and plain white cotton on this one. I've got some variegated cotton in yellow as well, so I might make even more of these cloths.

I've also made some pin cushions lately. These were actually made a few weeks back, but I forgot to show you them.... Most of the other pin cushions like this (that I've seen) have a button in the centre. I didn't want mine to look like everyone elses so this yellow one has a ring of beads added to the centre instead. I used Perle Coton to tie it.
The blue one is a bit bigger than the other two, and I've just used the Perle Coton thread to make a circle in the centre. The little red/orange one only has a few knots in the centre.

I'm not sure what I will do with all these pin cushions... don't think I need that many myself...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog :)

That dishcloth is superb! I was looking at the pattern yesterday but it only made me confused...don't know all the terms in english...even don't know them in dutch..oops! But I think when taking a really good look at yours...maybe I can do it without any pattern at all....hmm let's see if I dare too!?

Pincussions are always a nice gift! simple but usefull.

Ville bare ønske deg god påske. Jeg skal ut å reise, så det blir lite å høre fra min kant på en stund. Håper du får en flott kreativ ferie. Nåleputene dine er kjempefine, de ser egentlig lit morsomme ut å lage.
