Not with this piece, exactly.
I made this yesterday.
Here's what it became:
A reusable cover for my Swiffer.
No more replacing the covers and throwing them away.
I'm sort of going green.
Anyway, I digress.
What does this Swiffer cover have to do with anything?
Since I was a young child, I had to be doing something all the time.
My grandmother taught me to crochet as a young child.
I played with that a bit.
I made a couple of doilies and moved on to other things,
painting, clay, really, whatever I could do with my hands.
Then, when I became a 9th grader,
I fell in love with the opposite of reading,
writing, especially poetry.
I used to have volumes and volumes of poetry I wrote in my teenage angst
about love and the world around me.
Some of them were actually quite good and were published in a magazines and small collections of poetry.
My love for writing continued into womanhood,
and my love for crochet was awakened when I was a young bride on a very limited budget for crafts.
I crocheted everything I could!
I loved the craft so much.
As I began to age,
my love for crochet was overwhelmed by my love for quilting.
I was a quilter for 8 years.
I have many beautiful quilts as a result of that era.
Then, after my husband died,
I stumbled upon lampworking.
It's been 7 years now, and I haven't looked back.
There is always something new to learn and write about.
(How's that for blatantly ending a sentence with a preposition?)
To be listed very soon.
Sadly, you can't make these with fibers!
However, there are times when I have to go back to my roots.
That's why I made this, too!
What is it?
It's another Swiffer cover or it's a dishcloth for washing dishes or it's a shower or bath cloth.
You take your pick!
I plan to use it on my Swiffer.
Stay tuned tomorrow for another Easy Peasy Tutorial on how to make on of these Swiffer covers/dish cloths/ bath and beauty cloths.
They are easy and you just have to have beginning crochet skills.
