crocheted doily rug… for the kitchen

crochet doily rugIMG_0133IMG_0139angora bunnyPopping my head inside to share the new rug I made for the kitchen sink area.  Oh its so cushy!  Just the thing I need to stand on when dinner is over and the sink is piled high.  We all take turns, each one of us doing our share while children claim first, second and last to do dishes (the first people get to pick the dishes so you don’t really want to be last) until the sink is clear and wiped out clean which means that its ok to head to bed, or grab that book anyone of us may have been waiting all day to grab, work on a project, any project, guilt free.  Oh I love that.

I am not completely sold on this being THE ONE for the kitchen but it was super fast to make and its making me happy right now.  I do think that I will eventually create something easier to wash in the near future though, honestly.  The yarn came from here, really, I am just as surprised as you are 🙂  and all I did was pretend to crochet a simple doily with the biggest crochet hook I own.

I am excited to join my friend Ginny again (boy has it been a long time) and now I am popping back outside again because all the weeds out there wait for no man and the violet greens and flowers are at their peek before the blooms dissapear until next year and the greens become too tough to eat.  So we are once again collecting violet flowers outside to dry for tea and to make our violet jelly and enough greens for this weeks salads.  It is surprisingly cold outside again this week which is hard to deal with after we have become accustomed to wearing skirts and tshirts but it does make coming inside such a treat after a day of work outside.

See you tomorrow… I do need to finally share our new kitchen remodel and sometime this week, our maple syrup completed as well as the entire process.  See ya later!

    cushy is wonderful! Standing at the sink is a long affair when there are lots of dishes, so having comfort would make life more fun. Beautiful!! No violets blooming here but the dandelions are!!!

    That rug is such a great idea! It also looks very comfortable to stand on.

    The violets and bunny are also so pretty!

    I'm so jealous!! My violets are still brown and under snow in some places. We are expecting another dump of snow tonight.

      IT just gives you more time to take advantage of them when the snow goes away and your spring begins. Right now I feel like everything is happening at once haha!

        We have several types of angora now and a few different colors. I just did a post on harvesting fiber on my blog if you are interesting in seeing our bunnies!
