One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

From the Handiwork Journal . . .


. . . played around with a new "flower" dish scrubbie pattern.  I am making some to sell at the next Farmer's Market.


. . . finished my 11 year-old's tablet cover.  Finally.



. . . started another pot holder set, and dishcloth.  These are my "to go" projects.  When I need to go somewhere, and I am not driving, these go with me.



. . . got around to embellishing the crocheted cat bookmark.


. . . spray painted chalkboard paint on a clip board to make a sign for Farmer's Market.  



. . . crocheted 1 rag rug for the master bath (sheets and pillow cases).


. . . crocheted another bookmark for the store/market.



The weather is hot and humid here.  I collected 70 pints of water in my dehumidifier.  We have been running it in our master bath, to help the the tile project dry completely.  Rain is in the forecast today, but you never know anymore.

Those dish scrubbers are just the cutest ever! Doing dishes in style!! The kitty bookmarks are also quite clever and fun for all ages. Hope you have some profitable farmers market days!

Those scrubbers are sure cute.
I like the dish cloths...I should try making one...I don't knit. I crochet...and make them all the time. But a dish cloth sounds like the perfect project to try some knitting skills. :)
The tablet cover is cute...and so is the kitty applique and rug! (great use of old sheets)

...have a great weekend. Pat

Love that scrubbie, much cuter than just plain ones! The cat bookmark looks awesome all embellished too!
I really like the chalkboard clipboard idea too! :)

You've been busy! It all looks great. I especially like the flower scrubbie.
I had a good look around our saturday market this morning and nobody sells this type of thing. You could make a killing over here.
