Snow and Activities

 

It has been a busy day at the little blue house. It is snowing again. But there will be a teacher's workday tomorrow so I've been getting ready for that. Laundry that took a back seat for awhile is in the machine. The street has been shoveled where necessary.

While watching the Olympics this afternoon I've been knitting a cleaning cloth. Luckily we do not depend on my knitting skills for food on the table. No matter how careful I was. the counting always seemed to be off and I would have to rip out again. Bah!!

But it is done and such a pretty pink.

Dreaming of spring but enjoying the flakes that are falling.

Oh so pretty cleaning cloth! Too pretty to be a cleaning cloth. It looks more like an old fashioned "doily" to me. :-)

Anyone remember those things? "Doilies"? :-)

I love making the cloths, but they come out so tight ... I don't quite have a handle on crocheting.

Yours is so pretty, yes, love the pink.

And, I do remember doilies: just the other day, I remarked to my husband, Look at this paper doily, can you believe we've all forgotten the actual beauty of a real one, or that this is a paper version?

I have doilies around my house in honor of the women who made them.
