Knit dishcloths

My very special friend in Maryland sent me a wonderful gift a few weeks ago and I wanted to share it with you.  She has sent me several surprises over the last few years and everyone has been wonderful.  She knows me so well!!


Margaret is a knitter and I want to be.  For years she has been making my favorite dish cloths.  I recently got a package from her and this is what was in it.

A entire stack of cotton knitted dishcloths.

Hand knitted dishcloths that are the perfect size for my hands and they last forever (almost)!

The day they arrived the last one she made me about four years ago fell apart and I just about had a heart attack.  My beautiful friend made these for me when she was recovering from a blood clot or two that normally kills people.  This happened right after we had come back from our “First Annual Girls Trip”.  Margaret is a miracle  and my best friend.  I’m so glad that God has allowed her to stick around so she can keep me straight and make me laugh until my jaws hurt.

Margaret, thank you and I love you, ladybug!!

I am a wife, mother, and grandmother that lives on a farm in Craig County, Virginia and I am retired. I love to cook, read, quilt, craft, garden, hunt and take long walks in the woods. I have one gorgeous teen granddaughter, a wonderful little grandson and two beautiful and caring children, boy & girl. I've been married to my farmer husband for 46 years and he's the "love of my life"!! I love doing things the "old" way such as canning, making maple syrup & cider, handcrafts and baking. I've taught myself to crochet, embroider, and quilt with help from my paternal grandmother. I could read until the cows come home. We live off the products we raise and hunt for the most part. We run 75 head of cattle on our farm, 30 chickens, three rabbits and one dog. I help my husband with the cattle, feeding the livestock, hauling in firewood, fence repair, and general maintenance on the farm. I was a stay-at-home mom to my children and then went to work when they finished high school. I was a cook at a School for At-Risk Teens and part-time substitute teacher. Then I started work at our local Farm Bureau and stayed there for 17 years. I worked at Virginia Tech for almost five years and decided to take early retirement in July of 2015. NOW, I'm a full-time farmwife and loving every minute of it! I love to read fiction and the Bible. I'm currently hooked on quilting novels and Annie's Attic mysteries. I started this blog in 2011 and have met so many interesting bloggers and have kept up with my friends through my blog. I love to hunt with my bow and rifle and with a camera. We hunt to fill the freezer and cellar but would never kill anything for the fun of it. I have friends and family all over the United States. Some of my ancestry last names are Bradley, Dickson, Hylton, and Rose. I've lost both of my parents to brain cancer and miss them very much. I have one sister and four living brothers. I was raised in Paint Bank VA and moved to New Castle VA when I married. I went to school in Waiteville, WV, Gap Mills, WV and New Castle Va with a short semester of college at Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke VA.

  1. I love knitted dishcloths — using them and making them. They are always big sellers at the craft fairs I do. What a great surprise gift to get from a good friend and just in the nick of time too. Enjoy them.


  2. Our aunt Ethel Mays (my Moms sister) use to make those for me and she passed away. I would gladly buy some of them because I loved them so much.
