I came across Cheryls' blog after she left a comment on mine. She has pretty pictures, USEFUL craft ideas, and good recipes. My blog wants to be like her blog when it grows up! She posted about this cute little dishmat of hers and I said "I neeeeed one of those." I'm sure every mom can relate. You unload the dishwasher and put everything away except for the plastic sippy cups and bowls because they are still dripping wet. So I would pull out a flour sack dish towel and lay them on there until they dry. It's not the most pretty sight and it looks all disorganized. Cheryl's dishmat is a cute solution to that problem. Hers' is much cuter than mine, but I didn't want to spend that much time on it. So I cut up an old flour sack towel, put batting between the layers, went over it with a quilting ruler and pencil, quilted and bound it. And did it all within an hour. I love quick, easy and useful projects. It makes my kitchen counter look soo much better!
