Dishrags, Blueberries and Dresses
I made this for our visting distributor. The key to it's beauty are the hand placed fresh blueberries on top - done after you bake it. I made it in a quiche dish, but I like the way it turned out.
The Purl Bee for my mother. I remember doing the dishes as a kid with crocheted dishrags as we called them. They were purple. Faded now and still in my mom's rotation.
I bought all the yarn at the Close Knit on a trip to Portland last fall. But the real awesomeness was Bolt Fabric Boutique next door. I went there everyday of the visit and bought way too much. Enough organic cotton to make Edith a quilt, dishcloth material to recreate the photo on the left, material to make my first oliver + s dress for Ida and the coolest owl fabric ever. I will dig it out and post it soon. What will I do with it? Ideas anyone?
oliver + s dress pattern for Ida's first day of school. Second guessing myself I don't want her to look tooo cute the first day so I will save it for her birthday party dress instead.
Back to the needles...
