March Mystery KAL...

It's.. adorable. I hope everyone enjoys this months mystery cloth. My Mother had a hand in helping me sketch out a design so I'm going to give her most of the credit here. I have the entire pattern written out and ready to go for updates every two or three days. There will be six posts in all until the end of the month so we will be able to start April's on the first! It feels great to finally catch up on everything that I've let slide for awhile.

The kids wanted to make some rice crispy treat Easter eggs the other night and they were fantastic. They only took about 5 minutes to make and another 10 to decorate. We're having an Easter party in a few weeks and I'm definitely making these again, there was almost no cleanup. We dipped them in chocolate and then frosted with icing and sprinkles.

I'm still working on the Flower set of washcloths and they're almost ready to be published for Spring. This weekend I'm going to attack my overflowing inbox of emails and answer everything. I really don't like leaving things for too long.

  • 1 Ball of Lily's Sugar'n Cream Solid
I'm using 00093 Soft Violet (Purple), but you can use any color you wish. A light to medium pink, blue or yellow would go well also.

Have you thought about designing the hibicus flower or perhaps palm tree with a sunset? I know there are some palm tree out there but not as good as your designs...
Hope you can come with up something cool like this...
Enjoy your work tremendously!

Since this is an older post I'm not sure if you are aware that there are a bunch of spam responses. In any case, I just wanted to add a real comment to let you know that I just came across this KAL this week. Even though it is one from quite a few years ago, I am trying to make this cloth for my daughter as an Easter gift. She just moved out into her own apartment for the first time, so I enjoy gifting her little things to make it more like a home. I am having fun with this one. And I LOVE all the designs I've seen of yours so far, too! :)

I'M NOW FULFILL FINANCIALLY BECAUSE OF THE LOAN I GOT FROM LFDS .I would like to bring this to the notice of the public about how i came in contact with LFDS after i lost my job and being denied loan by my bank and other financial institution due to my credit score. I could not pay my children's fees. I was behind on bills, about to be thrown out of the house due to my inability to pay my rent, It was during this period my kids were taken from me by foster care. Then i set out to seek for funds online where i lost $3,670 that i borrowed from friends which i was rip off by two online loan companies. Until i read about:Le_Meridian Funding Service  ( / somewhere on the internet, Still wasn't convince because of what i have been through until a relative of mine who is a clergy also told me about the ongoing loan scheme of LFDS at a very low interest rate of 1.9%% and lovely repayment terms without penalty for default of payment. I have no choice than to also contact them which i did through text +1-989-394-3740 and Mr Benjamin responded back to me That day was the I'M best and greatest day of my life which can never be forgotten when i receive a credit alert of $400,000.00 Usd loan amount i applied for. I utilized the loan effectively to pay up my debts and to start up a business and today i and my kids are so happy and fulfill. You can as well contact them through email: ( /  WhatsApptext  helpline: +1-989-394-3740 Why am i doing this? I am doing this to save as many that are in need of a loan not to be victim of scams on the internet. Thanks and God bless you all, I'm Oleksander Artem from Horizon Park BC , Ukrain.
