My excuse

There is a perfectly good excuse for why I have dirty dishes sitting on my counter

It's because I haven't finished making my crocheted dish cloth yet.


I know you're probably wondering why I'm working on this when there has been no mention of finishing the afghan I had started, but I sort of lost interest in that since I knew it wasn't right.

Duke knows you well, Ann... He tells ALL of us what you SHOULD be doing and what you should NOT be doing... ha ha

I'm sure the afghan will get done sometime---but I know the dish cloth will definitely get done sooner!!!!! That's pretty....

You are quite a talented gal... Who in the world cares about dishes? Get Duke to do them!!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Well, one DOES have to follow one's heart, and I bet even Duke would agree with that!

Seems as good am excuse to me as any Ann... Shame about that afghan...will you start again???

How many dishes do you think will pile up before you finish the dishcloth??

Anna said...

Now Duke, you should know by now that everyone has a different way of working! Tell your mom that I don't always clear the dishes from the sink right away.

By the way, I saw that your mommy visited (allotments4you) Tanya Walton's post about a mincemeat recipe. Tanya posted that recipe because I asked her for help finding a recipe for mincemeat.
Now you know!

Best wishes & hugs,
Anna

Always knit a new dishcloth before you do the dishes.. hehehehe.. that will be a pretty good excuse not to do dishes. I think i should try to take up knitting and i'll probably start with a dishcloth :)

Bwahahaha! This is great!!! Love the pic of Duke!!

Have you offered to help clean the dishes, Duke? Our puppies seem to really enjoy it. (I imagine that you already have, but in order to avoid making your mommy feel bad about not taking full advantage of all of her assets, I had to ask.)

I promise I had not read your blog before I wrote mine today.

Sandra said...

be ashamed Duke, until your comment I was 'believing" her story. waiting to see what you did in the box that made color. forget these projects, play with the BOX

SweetMarie said...

You're so funny! Is Duke going to clean those dishes for you?? Love the pic of Duke on that pretty blanket. :)

LDH said...

What is it about those dirty dishes that keep coming back. The crochet dishcloth will be so fun to make. Your stitches look great!

Helen said...

Hey, Duke, aren't you suppose to help your mom with those dirty dishes? so she could have more time for fun things.

Hello!

I love crocheted dish cloths! Do you sell them? Wishing you a happy day today!

Hugs,

BeadedTail said...

Duke, the question is where is your dog bed she's making you? That should be top priority!

Sandee said...

Dog doo? Bwahahahahaha. Duke nailed it.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

What wonderful sixth sense dogs have, he knows you so well.
don't worry about not finishing things, I do that all the time. Some eventually do get done and others just lounge about the place. I say as long as I'm doing something it's okay, its when I just sit staring at the wall that somethings wrong. lol

Well if it makes you feel any better, I have a whole closet full of things I haven't finished and probably not going to finish. I find it really easy to lose interest. I do not have any more patience. Don't give up Ann. Take care.

Chatty Crone said...

Duke she can't wash the dishes without a dish cloth! sandie

Donna said...

Hey, just work on those projects that make you feel good! If it isn't working for you, quit and don't feel guilty about it! It's a hobby for enjoyment. Emphasis on ENJOYMENT!

Ratty said...

You are one of many people, including myself, who I've noticed have been very busy lately with a little too much to do. I have a whole sink full of dishes myself, and I just got doing them earlier.

Catherine said...

Well how are you supposed to do the dishes without a proper wash cloth???? ;)
xo Catherine

Anne said...

Too bad you can't teach Duke to crochet. Although I am sure he would be happy to lick the dishes clean for you too.

marie said...

Oh Duke...be nice to Ann. I believe her!
I'm working on a dishcloth too. I wonder if that will get me out of dishes tonight? I'm gonna try!

Sharkbytes said...

Those dishcloths are all pretty, but I find them thicker than I like to use.
