Serenity Spa Washcloth – FREE PATTERN!

I have been sitting on this pattern for awhile, but I kept getting sidetracked from getting it published.  I traveled to visit people, people traveled here to visit us, fungus amongus invaded, spring cleaning… and after all that, I’ve been just plain tired!!!  And what do we all usually dream of when we’re exhausted and worn out???  Yep – a spa day!

I don’t know about you, but money doesn’t grow on any of the trees in my yard, so that week-long luxurious spa vacation is still a pipe dream for me, LOL!  So I went with the next best idea and designed a really simple yet elegant washcloth that just feels so lovely!  And I thought to myself… “Self, I bet all your hundreds of thousands of friends would love to feel this awesomeness too! And if you give it to them for free, they’ll love you forever!”  Hehehe, you will, right?!?!
