Had a brain wave - and as this was on the front page of our town paper and talking about the Hospice in my village, yesterday, I thought I would give a Link as I forgot to post the front page with the dishcloth. Very Happy Laughing

Right, now I've got a picture in my head of my DH looking on in amazement whilst I pose around our house, trying to get the camera timer to go off at the correct time, in my altogether, with various skeins of yarn placed strategically over my body Shocked ...............................
Just so I can send it off for Holly's Christmas calender Smile

I'm pretty sure that will finish him off and my next post will be direct from the local sanitarium Laughing

On third thoughts, this is a bit sexist, so apologies to our male knitters.........................we'd better have one or two female models as well 'lol'

I have got to admit defeat that I cannot get a picture that shows off the dish cloth I received from GrannySmith well enough for you to see the detail. The cloth is made out of such a beautiful snow white the design does not show up in a piture.

I wish you could see it because, of course, it's a GRANNY SMITH APPLE!

It is so sweet and the stitching is all very uniform and neat.

I am so sorry I can't get a picture to show it justice, and as of today it will be too late because hubby put it on the sink this morning.

GypsySnail.....what's going on in your mailbox? We haven't heard from you in a while.

Very Happy

You are welcome Holly, glad you liked it Very Happy

Now that DH has used it, perhaps the colour will not be quite so bright and will show the design up. Wink Really pleased it has been put straight to use especially by DH while you can still do your knitting while he is washing up Very Happy Laughing
