This post may be a little boring to some people and for this I apologise.
Okay, I know I must have too much time on my hands! Sad isn't it?
I haven't stopped thinking about this little dishcloth since Joanne over at We knit, Sew, Bake and Grow posted about searching for the perfect pot scrubber. I don't know that this one is perfect but it works well and I have thrown it in the washing machine with no ill effects. The picture above was my first effort but I thought I would make the scrubber part smaller and add a little more edging so this dishcloth would have a dual purpose, washing and scrubbing.
What ya need,
Take one empty plastic mesh bag that oranges come in...
Cut the top off the bag...
Remove the plastic thingy at the bottom. These thingy's also make a makeshift scrubber if you are without one, I have used these before when out camping.
Fold the bag thus....
And thus...add a couple of pins to hold it firmly in place.
Now using cotton (good to see that 8ply can now be purchased if you are near a spotlight store) all you do is crochet around the outer edges. I decided on three rows. Not hard, see? So long as you can crochet of course.
This is my second attempt.
The weather has been rather pleasant but warm with temperatures around 32C (89.6F). They are promising rain later today so that would be nice to freshen things up.
Today I have the pleasure of going for my mammogram appointment. Not looking forward to that at all. To me it feels something like getting your boobies shut in the fridge door, which I might add I have never done before. That's the unfortunate thing about having breast cancer in the family. Better safe than sorry.
Dad is doing fine at the moment although he is getting tired easily. I think that may have something to do with his medication though.
Another blog I enjoy is the Frugal Family Fun Blog Lots of ideas for the budget conscious. Go take a look, includes lots of craft ideas for children.
Wishing you all a wonderful day,
