My first M-D FO!

I'm a long time lurker, first time posting. You have all created such wonderful items from the book! I have checked out the book from the library, and of course, my first objects were the warshclothes.

And, as always; I try everything in cotton first- a log cabin placemat.

Now, I just need to muster up the courage to make three more. (I never even make socks or mittens that match, so this will be a challenge for me...)

A couple of things about the washclothes-
1. I love the hefty feel of it in use. Most washcloth patterns I've followed tend to feel wimpy in the dishwater.
2. I feel so smart when my DH says "Wow, honey- that looks really complicated!"
3. I am able to get two cloths out of one ball of ombre background, which I was suprised about- I thought I'd have to switch the ombre to the slipped background color on the second, but voila! It appears that I can get two plus extra solid!
4. I use Sugar -n- Cream, they seem to have more of the color combos I lust after!

My next project is from the MD archives, not the book- the French Market bag for a friend in NYC. I can't wait to see more of the great projects from everyone!

I really like the pink placemat.. it's giving me ideas for the baby boom that is occuring in my family right now. It would make a lovely blanket! Great work!
Ooh, that's a neat placemat, I hadn't thought to make a placemat, neat!
I love your log cabin placemat. I think I'm going to have to make a set for myself. Think of all the color possibities that could go for each holiday or season to decorate the table (Christmas: red & green, Valentines day: red pink & white, Fall leaves: red, orange, yellow, ST. Patricks Day: green, etc...)
*giggle* @ abby! I can't wait to see them!
The placemats are a great Idea. They would be nice for a picnic basket gift I am going to be putting together.
I will be totally in love with the fabulous sporty shoes like Hogan scarpe

is known for its casual-chic sneakers for him as well as her, you want to pick Hogan scarpe uomo
and try it out, and you can opt for hogan donna
