Knitted Dish Cloth

The other day I mentioned that I have been knitting dish cloths.
I thought I would share the pattern with you all in case you get the itch to do a little knitting.
They are really easy to make and are pretty quick.
Here is the link to

There are several other free patterns on this site as well.

I love the Sugar and Cream cotton yarn. Buying yarn is as bad as buying fabric for me.
I see all the fun colors and want to buy one of each!
Self control is something I'm working on.
Happy Knitting!

What is making you smile this week?

The weather has been so nice the last few days and it does wonders for my mood!
The sunshine and warm breeze are a gift from God. I love it so much!
I just wanted to share a few things that have just made me smile this week. Simple things that make me happy and thankful!
First are these really great brownies!

They are so yummy! I do think homemade is best but these are so easy and super chocolaty!
These glass egg cartons are so sweet!

A good friend gave them to me as a birthday present back in the fall and every time I fill them with my fresh eggs it makes me smile! I love to see them sitting in the fridge when I open the door!
I learned to knit before Christmas and have found it to be a relaxing pass time!

I am currently working on dish cloths. They could also be used as potholders I think.
Its an easy pattern that is pretty quick!

Have you ever made "eggs in a basket"? They are super yummy!

I had never tried it until last week but they have fast become our favorite way to eat a fried egg!
Use lots of salted butter and it makes the toast so much better than out of a toaster!

My Better Half loves to dip the toast into the egg yolk! Me, I prefer the yolk fried almost hard. 
I will be cutting some of these today to bring inside the house!
They smell so wonderful! I opened the front window and the bush is right outside, the breeze brings the aroma right in! I love this time of year so much!

So let me know what is making you smile this week!
