A Special Order of Blue

I've been working on a special order that I thought I'd share -- it's got lots of blues!

Several years ago, a lovely customer ordered some washcloths from me -- and then we were off and running! 

She wanted the washcloths in specific colors and, of course, all in cotton yarn. It turns out that she teaches in a preschool and these were for her young students to use to keep their hands and faces clean!

 Then she began to include other sizes -- 5x7 and 10x12 which turned out to be sets of napkins and placemats! What a clever idea!

 This recent order was for six colors of napkins and placemats -- and included blues! 

Light and dark turquoise, a cornflower blue (remember your crayons?), and a navy blue. Light green and purple too, but they aren't blue!

I love all the colors stacked up --

 a cotton rainbow!

♥ Join me for a cup of tea?

I haven't used a crocheted washcloth, I'll have to try one. The cups of cocoa are so cute, they remind me of some made from beads in a Japanese beading book.

Oh my! Those cups of tea are adorable! And I love the rainbow of colors! I've wanted to make a face cloth and not just one for a dishcloth. You've been busy my friend! Hugs!
