# 6 & WE ARE HALF WAY THERE

HELLO,
 HOW IS EVERYBODYS DAY GOING SO FAR?

WE ARE HALF WAY THROUGH THE CHALLENGE WITH # 6 DISHCLOTH.
I AM STILL USING MY BALLS OF YARN & I HAVE SO MUCH THAT WHEN I AM DONE WITH THIS CHALLENGE, I BET I WILL STILL HAVE SOME LEFT LOL

IN THE FUTURE MY HUBBY & I ARE MOVING TO VIRGINIA, SO I WAS TRYING TO COME UP WITH A DESIGN THAT WOULD REPRESENT THE SOUTH.
I DECIDED TO MAKE A FAN SHAPE LIKE THE SOUTHERN LADIES USE ON A HOT DAY.

I AM CALLING THIS ONE "THE SIMPLE LIFE"
