Beating Around the Bush

 My snowball bush is almost ready to start sharing its beautiful white blooms with me. 

 I had it trimmed back drastically last year - it was taller than the house!

I was concerned it might not bloom.

I just love it when it is all in bloom - apparently, the bees do too!!

Pinned It, Made it!

I stumbled across a party that features things that you pinned and then made.  I thought that was a wonderful idea!  

My entry is one that I have been making for the past year - Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth.  I love knitting these dishcloths because they are quick and easy - a perfect craft for watching TV, sitting at the doctor's office, riding in the car, waiting on the boys, etc.... 

I also love to wash dishes with these.  They are divine to use as dishcloths!  Once you have used these to wash dishes, everything else does not compare.

I like to give these away to people.  They can be used as dishcloths, washcloths, potholders, spa cloths, etc...  They are very versatile.

The picture above was what I gave my boys' school teachers the last day of school last year. 

Here's the original Pinterest, along with the instructions:
Here's a stack of mine!

Here's the link to the party:
