more dishcloth patterns

first, a find from the thrift store! i adore old sewing notions. someday i will have a craft space where i can display and use them. i found this hem marker my last trip. so great.
i want to get my napkins done. my partner had absolutely no preference on color, so now i am confused about what i should make. i think i'll play it safe with white or cream, and maybe do some decorative stitching on one hem. i don't want to spend the time on bias trim without an idea of what their decor is, and choosing a patterned fabric is hard too. i may make some cool napkin rings. you use a tube of fabric and stitch d-rings to one end. voila, little napkin belts!

i finished knitting a washcloth yesterday, the pattern is really cute diamonds but i had a hard time remembering which line i was on. it was from a book i read a few years ago, but i can't remember the title. the other stitch patterns are the kitchen cotton and raised box stitch. the striped is a combo of a bunch of leftover yarn, the orange is a diagonal checks, and i think the cookie jar is adorable. i found a pattern for a sewing machine cloth, and i may try that soon.
