Makeover Monday 7/2

 Today's project started with a large ball of mercerized white cotton yarn.
 I added a tiny bit of this beautiful silvery gray cotton.
 And viola- a sweet white face or fingertip cloth!  I'm quite pleased with my picot edging- I wanted something delicate to cap off the project, and this works beautifully.
The 12" by 12" paper from the top photo was made into an origami box.  I left this little gift for my parents as a token of our appreciation of their amazing hospitality and generosity.
Happy Monday to all!  Do you Americans have special plans for Independence Day?

Hi Victoria! No, Mom doesn't crochet. She plans to take a knitting lesson this winter, though. She's very crafty, but her realm is more in painting and decorating.
