Wednesday (Creative Title,huh?)

I crocheted a couple more dishcloths for my shop. Well, one and a half. I made these a touch bigger so I ran out of yarn. I'll get more today and finish. I'm going to make some for myself. I just love them.I heart a crocheted dishcloth

Yesterday I painted this drawer thingey I got at goodwill. I got it several months ago and it's been a few different colors. I think I'm finally happy with it.

Today is date day. After a couple of errands, we can relax and enjoy some time "out" together.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hi Lisa! Lovely things to gaze at on your blog, as usual! I love that dishcloth colour, so pretty! And you did a great job with that "hutch" (don't know why, it evokes a hutch to me!) What a pretty arrangement.
Hope your date was great! :)

Oooooh - I love the transformation of the drawer...I wouldn't not have seen that particular potential in it!! Beautiful...

BTW I got a catalog in the mail yesterday, one that I love to look at and I thought of you and wondered if you've ever got it. It is a wonderful place to get ideas - the samplers in particular would be a great mine for ideas for your shop.

It's always fun to repurpose/revamp/rejuvinate something - I like how you redid the little chest and how it looks on the table.
Hope you had a great date day!

Hi! You did a wonderful job on that little drawer unit--love the bird, such a cute touch! I have to agree with you too about the hand made dish cloths--once you start using them, there is no way you can go back to the chintzy storebought ones--they just don't cut it!
Smiles, Karen
p.s. I hope you have a wonderful date night--I'm gonna have to start that around here!

I have been very busy at work this week so have missed some of your posts. Am catching up now:)

Love, love your dishclothes (what a great idea Lisa).

And your draw thingey' (is that it's technical name? he hee) looks fabulous revamped. Love the colors you have used and the Cavallini paper (love their stuff) looks so good.

Hope you enjoyed your date night! Wish I had someone to have a date night with. Aahhh, there's always the kitties *grin*.

Love you sweetiepie xx

I hope Blogger will let me post a comment today! At least I can see the word verification thingy (it wouldn't show it to me yesterday! stinker)
Anyway - I wanted to tell you how much I love your drawer thingy! Especially the cute little birdie.
I wish I could crochet as well as you do - your stitches and shapes look so neat and even - believe me, you would not want to see what mine look like :D
Hope you had a great date night!
