I put the finishing touches on my bountiful basket donation for our church's Harvest Festival today. I wrapped it up in cellophane and even printed up a little card with all the necessary info. The basket contains two ball band, one "swish with a twist" and one garterlac dishcloths. A small bottle of hand lotion and a bottle of dawn dish detergent was also added. Then I came up with something cute to perk the basket up. The special little something that I crocheted last night really does adds a little bit of fun to the package. I had to give the basket a name (theme), so I'm calling it "Joyful Dishwashing". Anyone who receives the basket should find the chore of dishwashing just a little bit more fun with the hand knit cloths and a cheerful daisy scrubbie, don't you think?
If anyone is interested in making the daisy scrubbie, you can find the pattern here. The pattern is really easy. What's nice about it, is that it's a pot scrubber and dishcloth combined. A very clever idea and it was fun and quick to make. I found the pattern link on Yarn Tomato's blog. Thank you, Yarn Tomato, you had just what I needed to complete my basket. Isn't "google" wonderful? Last but not least, I would like to thank my friends at MDKal for helping me with all your wonderful advice and suggestions. With your help I now have a basket that I think is pretty wonderful.
