my creative space




Here I am brave enough to join along with kootoyoo and her crafty tribe.     I have been dabbling a bit with crochet chains and re learning stitches from my early childhood.  Just thought making some home made dishcloths would be a good start.  As with any beginner getting the tension and finishing off  right seems to be the hard part. 


I am very excited about my vintage finds with this outdoor setting.  I found the table at a garage sale about 6 months ago and have been on the lookout for some cheap chairs that would match.  Yesterday drove past a seconds shop and did a double take.  Asked best price and got a good deal.  Really happy how they blend together.


It has been raining here a lot but there has been little pockets of sunshine that make the autumn leaves glimmer.




Have a lovely thursday.

Great find! Centsational girl has lots of good tips if you are wanting to paint them - but they look great as they are too!

Crochet dishcloths are such a fun crochet project to get back into the hooking. Enjoy your finished project, it's looking very pretty so far. :)

....those chairs....tres chic, make regular visits to that shop!
You have a great way of putting it all together Jill, I'm also making dishcloths, inspired by Rhonda, however I'm knitting as I have never learned to crochet! Think I'll find a group and learn.
