Thank God For Dirty Dishes

November 12, 2013

Having some cotton yarn on hand, I crocheted three dish clothes.

I didn’t have any particular pattern in mind.

It is not that these patterns are unique, it is that I didn’t have a plan before starting each one.

If I say so myself, I do like the bright colors.

Thank God for dirty dishes,
They have a tale to tell.
While others may go hungry,
We’re eating very well.

When I was a child, my mother hung a little plate with that very poem. Today, I have that plate hanging on my wall near my kitchen sink.  This plate, that I cherish, has to be over 50 years old.  I found that these vintage plates are quite popular.

My cat, Luna was sitting in the front window inside of the house while I was taking pictures outside.  I snapped a picture of her through the window.


I like how her colors are the same colors as the outside.

Look how well she blends in with the outdoors reflecting from the window.
