Giveaway day is here!

update: the giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Brandi, #250, my winner! Thanks to all who played along.

Today is the day we've all been waiting for! It's Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway day!
 If you found your way here from the Sew Mama Sew blog, welcome! I hope you'll come back again soon. If you're a regular ellyn's place visitor/follower/friend, bet you're glad you stopped by today. I'm always happy to have you.

What's that? Get on with it, you say? Oh, right... the giveaway! How's this...
 If you dropped by over the weekend, you saw that I've been crocheting dishcloths. They are yummy 100% cotton yarn, perfect for cheering up your dishwashing duties (and they're green. so if perhaps dishwashing is hubby's job, he won't object to the color, right?). I added in two kitchen towels with a bit of patchwork to make you (or the kids) smile while the dishes are being dried.

I'm pretty sure there will be some other little surprises that will make their way into the package too! And I'll be happy to ship it anywhere in the whole wide world...


All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post by this Friday, May 25. Tell me who does the dishes in your house. Or, what you're cooking for dinner tonight. Or anything you want (you can just say "pick me pick me" no guarantees though). If you want to click "follow" on my sidebar that would be awesome too! It won't help you in the giveaway, but it'll help you find your way back here when the madness is over. I will use the handy dandy random number generator to pick a winner on Saturday... oh, make sure I have a way to contact you. If I pick a no-reply-blogger with no email I'll have to choose someone else. That would be sad!

I would love, love, love to win this set! They are so pretty! I usallly fall short and never get anything made for myself, so it would be nice to have something handmade. Of course, I'm not actually the one who does the dishes in the house (my husband does), but still... :)

Amy said...

Wow these are aawesome!! My favourite colour!! Tonight I am cooking my birthday supper of spagetti and meatballs (not exciting but very tasty) and I will probably do the dishes too. Such is life!!! Great giveaway - many thanks for letting me enter!

christinebolin said...

I love the colors. They will match my backsplash in the kitchen.

Karen said...

I do the dishes of course, but he does the bins! I am a follower.

diane said...

These are so pretty! I love them! I'm in charge of the dishes at my house, but my kids pitch in and help with the work!

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

mostly I do the dishes... but my husband loads the dishwasger and empties it sometimes too

Strawberry Patch said...

I do the dishes, despite having really bad eczema on my hands, these would really cheer my up at washing time!

MissEnota Minnesota said...

Good morning! We do the dishes together, while talking...disgusting, I know. :)

Erin said...

My husband and I share the dish duties in our house.
Thanks,
Erin

Marika said...

These would be perfect in my new house!! Otherwise, I'll have to buy some :)

Thanks for the chance !

Kate said...

My husband usually does the hand-dishes in the evening, but if we eat too late or something, then they fall to me the next day.

kathy said...

My retired husband generally does the dishes. I practice being grateful nearly every day even when he does them differently than me.

You might consider turning off the undecipherable word verification. Blogger does a good job detecting spam and you can always 'approve' comments.

nela said...

we will have vegetable soup with bits of ham for dinner and of course freshly baked bread

Alyson said...

Hrm. Well, my husband and I switch off - one of us does the dishes and the other does bedtime with our son. It's a happy medium. And for dinner tonight? It's "Meatless Monday" so I'm thinking we'll probably have pancakes. Pancakes are always a big hit for dinner. :-)

Lisa Cox said...

We do have to hand wash dishes in our house. I miss having a dishwasher, lol. But I only have to do dishes when everyone else is away. Otherwise it is the mother in law's job to do dishes. I do the cooking.
Thank you for the chance to win these.

drmithome said...

The dish towels are really nice. We do have a dishwasher and most nights my husband cleans up the kitchen, including hand wash items. Got to love a man with a servant's heart.

Michell said...

We all do dishes in this house depending on who is working or not that day

Brooke said...

I do all the dishes at my house- or at least I am supposed to! I have a lot of "morning" sickness and they seem to be piling up. :P I love crochet dishcloths and even made a few this month. :)

captainsharmie said...

i'm making tonkatsu (breaded pork loin) for dinner tonight. it's one of my favourite foods and is delicious in a sandwich!

you can reach me at supersharmie at gmail dot com :)

Amy said...

These dish clothes are charming! I usually do the dishes. When my husband has time or wants to put me in a good mood (when I'm having a rough day) then he will help me do them. :)

fern said...

If I do the cooking, I ask my husband to do the washing...but it sometimes ends up the neither of us do it and grandma(my mom) does it while visiting! Other days I do the dishes...
I've never used a crocheted dishcloth and would LOVE to try this out! how fantastic! I bet they don't end up smelling like disgusting sponges because they can be washed!

Holly U said...

What a sweet set! They'd look great in our new house. The house we're selling has a dishwasher but the one we'd like to buy does not. The deal in our house is that when I cook, my husband cleans up and vice versa. Since I do most of the cooking, he's insisting that we get a dishwasher at that house ASAP...

susan mitchell said...

Love the color combo, such pretty fabrics:)
Lol at our house the dishwasher does the dishes...except for the toddler's sippy cups those fall to whomever is unlucky enough to discover the few we use are dirty! Little man is switching to real cups so we're cutting down:)

T said...

In my house, the dishes are bit contentious. Sometimes I do the washing up, sometimes he does the washing up, and sometimes...his mother does the washing up. I'm not proud of it at all but sometimes it's just what happens!

bethanndodd said...

I do the dishes most of the time but my husband does help out(he is a work in progress...ha!). The towels are just lovely. Thanks for the chance. Smiles~Beth

Crunchy Con Mommy said...

I wash the dishes...all by hand. Our new (to-us; it's actually almost 100 years old) house doesn't have a dishwasher. We are going to get a portable one once we save up a little bit more money. For now, washing dishes takes up a big chunk of my time!

Crunchy Con Mommy said...

I wash all the dishes by hand. It is the one chore my husband pretty much refuses to do, and we don't have a dishwasher!

Lindsay(PACountryCrafts) said...

I do the dishes, but yesterday, I made my 8yo dry them and she said "Why do you make me do ALL the work!?" So I told her if she complains again she can wash them, too. :)

krislovesfabric said...

We take turns on dishes, but my turn comes up most often, thanks for a chance at such cheery cloths!!

Kim @ TatjanaGrace said...

We have an agreement at our house that whoever cooks doesn't have to do the dishes, so my husband does them pretty much all the time.
Great colours! Love that green :D. Thanks for the giveaway!

allthetrend said...

I wish I could say that I have an Elf who appears each night to clean my dishes and kitchen...but...no luck! I pretty much do all the cleaning around here. (Which would be so much more fun with new dishtowels!! Haha!)

MissMary said...

Alas, I tend to do more than my share of the dishes (between my roommate and I). Of course, I also do more cooking and baking, so it makes sense... I recently made a couple of trial dish cloths, but yours are quite superior ;-) Green and grey are my kitchen colors, too! :-) Thanks for the inspiration and sweet giveaway!

KD-Quilts said...

I mostly do the dishes, but my husband does help out after dinner!

Gill said...

Fabulous giveaway!
I do the dishes in our house!

Anita said...

How cute!

Hubby or I do them and my daughter on Summer vacation. Son might be tall enough to help this year. =)
thank you.

Jessica said...

Love this cute set! I do the dishes most of the time.. still waiting for a dishwasher! Tonight I am making salmon and fresh salad!

Lisbeth said...

Oh, lovely! I do the dishes in our house, and do most of the cooking too! I keep telling my husband that we need to install a dishwasher...

Thanks so much for offering a wonderful giveaway!

CMEH said...

I live alone so I have to do everything, unfortunately. I have pulled pork in the crock pot right now and it is already driving me crazy!!!! I am glad it is lunch time! These are perfect for me! I LOVE THEM! Thanks for a great giveaway!

ircabbit said...

I wash the pots, we both put our own dishes in the dishwasher, and hubby usually unloads it.

Emilyplays said...

Lovely colors! This is my first visit to your blog, lots to read! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! I'm making gluten/dairy/soy free french toast for breakfast, and to think it used to be our quick and easy breakfast!

Diane (sis) said...

Because my hubby does all the cooking I get to do all the dishes!! Pick me! Pick me!
<3

debbie said...

I do the dishes and this would look and work great in my kitchen!!

daydream kate said...

My husband is gone, so I am making chicken satay. Super yum! But when he is home, we both do the dishes...and it only takes a bit of nagging.

Genevieve P said...

I'm lucky--my husband almost always washes the dishes! Thanks for the giveaway.

Kim said...

I am in charge of the dishes at my house now. Before my girls got married, they helped. Supper tonight is going to be roasted chicken breast with gravy and bread filling, mashed potatoes, and probably some corn that I froze last summer.

kmartz81@yahoo.com

Leah said...

We all do dishes. Kids do it during the week, Me and hubby do it on the weekends. And Pork Chops are for dinner tonight!

Jessica Jo said...

I do the dishes and I refuse to use the dishwasher. It drives my husband crazy but I don't care. It hurts my back bending over like that AND it's extra storage space.

Tonight for dinner we are having a slow cooker meal from my new "French SC" book. Spinach meat balls, nom nom nom!

feelincrafty said...

I do the dishes. Well, I get them ready for the dishwasher, anyway!!! These colors will look awesome in my kitchen!! Thank you!

imfeelincrafty at gmail dot com

♥Duff said...

I do the dishes, unless it's mother's day, then my son does them after he cooks!
I just love your color choices! thanks fo rthe giveaway!!

susan said...

I do the dishes in our house - unfortunately. And I love your clothes but would be loathe to use them on my grubby pots. I would put them somewhere to look nice and then whip out the old cloth for anything that wasn't near clean already!

Thanks for the giveaway.

Kristi said...

My husband would often do the dishes before, but since I've been pregnant this time it has become exclusively his job.
mindfulhome at gmail dot com

Meghan said...

These are adorable! Love the green and white, so crisp and clean :)

I usually do most of the cooking and my mom does the dishes, hehe.

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

xoxo

Kristin said...

My husband and I general split dishes duty, although he often ends up washing while I dry and put the dishes away.

bee*in*the*balm said...

thawing a chicken, no guarantees it will be ready to go though so who knows?
fingers crossed! treevt80 at yahoo dot com

Calikisses said...

This would be a fantastic item to win! I am in such a need of new dishtowels. My boyfriend and I switch off doing the dishes. For some odd reason I absolutely LOATHE putting dishes away, so usually I will do him if he puts them away!

Melissa Ann said...

This is beautiful. We both do some of the dishes... but I do all of the decorating :)

NabihaW said...

My husband hates hates HATES doing the dishes, so it's always me at the kitchen sink...but I cut my finger 2 weeks ago and it had to be sutured...he finally had to do the dishes...got such a kick out of watching him tackle them!

Jingle said...

I do the dishes in my house and we don't have a machine! LOL! The Hubbums does most of the chores, though, so I'm quite happy to be in charge of the dishes...I can handle that! He even does the cooking! Thanks for this wonderful giveaway! jinglesells at gmail dot com

Norma's Clay said...

Mostly I do the dishes. Oh God and I'm tiired of it. I've been doing the dishes since I was 5. I really need a dishwasher but for now those beautiful dish cloths will do.

Echo Dannelle said...

How cute!

My husband and I have an unspoken agreement. If I do the dishes and the kitchen, he will clean everything else. Which works for us. He can clean our house from destroyed (like really DESTROYED) to presentable enough for my grandma (which is CLEAN) in 20 minutes TOPS. It would literally take me all day to do that. I'm not sure what we do differently.

mframe said...

I do both the cooking and the cleaning in my house. And tonight we are having Tex-Mex Lasagna.
mframe00@gmail.com

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

Hey Ellyn! Nice giveaway!! Pick me! Pick me! Just kidding! the dishwashing chore is split between the machine and my husband and myself. Mostly me though. He will argue that point. ;)

Christina said...

I do the dishes and this would sure make me happy! christina112358 at gmail dot com

quilt happy said...

i would love to win those

Melissa Palmer said...

I mostly do the dishes, but my hubby is very generous in helping out :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

melissajpalmer at yahoo dot com

@pril said...

I do the dishes.

amelia said...

Well, the dish duties used to be a *little* more even, but since our baby was born 3 months ago, I am lucky and thankful that I haven't had to do many at all....

Love this color combo!

Sarita said...

Those cloths would go very nicely in my soon-to-be new kitchen! ;)
I was going to either do pizza or manicotti tonight, but there are a goodly batch of leftovers to use up first. Tomorrow, probably, if I can decide which to cook.

Thanks for the opportunity to win! :)

sarita0818 at comcast dot net

Heather said...

I do the dishes. When my husband cooks he thinks he I should do the dishes. So whoever cooks it usually ends up being me (not always though). I love the green neutral colors! heather738(at)gmail(dot)com

cpurl17 said...

That set is adorable!!

At my house, I'm the one who does the dishes. I've tried to train the cats but they're useless.

~ Julie ~ said...

Nothing beats homemade dish cloths and towels! For dinner tonight we're having eggs, bacon and O.J.! We love having breakfast for dinner! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great giveaway! :)

Kimberly said...

I usually do the dishes, and the cooking. Tonight I think we are having leftovers because my husband is working late. Any excuse to not cook is good for me. :)
Thanks for the giveaway!

Jo said...

I wish it wasn't true but I do the dishes in our house. What a great prize you have thanks for the chance to win

Kelli said...

Me. And I'm talking hand-washing. None of that dishwasher stuff.

Melissa said...

Wow, look at all these comments today!! Those dishcloths turned out so nice. Robbie and I pretty much share dishwashing & cooking responsibilities around here.

Bron said...

These are so pretty, and I love your logic for picking the embellishments! My husband and I both share doing dishes (with the help of a dishwasher) but I certainly generate most of the work!

Robin said...

Oh, I just love the colors of the towels! I think I am going to make spaghetti tonight...yummy!

Jenn said...

Love the colors you chose! I do the dishes...and the cooking...and any other cleaning! ;)

koch.jennifera(at)gmail(dot)com

Jessica said...

I do the dishes. I wouldn't mind so much if I had such cute cloths! Thanks for the chance!

Bethany said...

Green is my favorite color!! I do the dishes, we are having Chili tonight as it is a rainy day here in Oregon and it sounds good!! :)

thecraftykitty said...

As I am sat here writing this, my husband is downstairs tidying up the kitchen, although technically the dishwasher does the dishes ;)

Those cloths and tea towels are beautiful, I would love to win them to brighten up my new kitchen when we move soon!

AnnieK said...

Ohh, that set totally matches my kitchen! Hubby and I are trying to share the dishes, fifty-fifty...I think we all know how that's working out... tee hee!

Kay said...

This is a fab giveaway, thank you. They would look great in my green kitchen. We all help tidying up the kitchen as it is quicker that way.
ks.eyles@yahoo.co.uk

Abigail said...

We have a rule... whoever cooks... the OTHER person does the dishes. So, I usually cook, because i HATE doing dishes. My husband will love these ;)

abigail.lee {at} gmail.com

Laura said...

I do most of the dishes, although I get help once in a while! I love this set!

Shirley said...

Lovely set! I live alone so I get to do the dishes.

Crafty Moira said...

I"m in need of new dishcloths. My boyfriend usually does the dishes, but I'm the ones who cooks so its fair. Tonight we are having steak and eggs... just as soon as I stop browsing blogs... :)

Jennifer Gail said...

I do:(

Amy said...

Well, my husband started doing the dished for me when I was pregnant with our now 6-month-old baby... and I haven't been too eager to take back the job, so I make sure I tell him a lot how much I appreciate his help!

Rose said...

The dishes are left for me to do in our house. I sure could use those lovely cloths and towels to cheer up my job.

Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

danette said...

I should do the dishes. Some days I do and some days I don't.

Lizzie said...

My hubbie says he'll do the dishes but never looks behind him to see what's left so I end up "finishing" the dishes! I guess its the thought that counts!

debbiekl said...

The husband is the dish do-er here. Love the dish clothes!

Valerie said...

I do the dishes, but I'm fortunate that hubby cooks, so it's a pretty good trade-off I'd say! Tonight he made us hamburgers on the grill, yum yum!

Ingrid said...

Pretty! Would match my kitchen beautifully!

Joy said...

I do the dishes! These would be fun to use!

Jen said...

What a pretty set! We take turns on the dishes, although now that I'm pregnant and get back aches from standing for too long, I have a great excuse to pass that chore mostly to my husband. Thanks for the giveaway!

Michelle J. said...

I do the dishes, and it's not so bad. It's the bathrooms I loathe!

Maria said...

Love the dish clothes and tea towels. In my home DH does the breakfast dishes and we share the dinner ones.
tonight we are having spag bog and my DD2 is cooking as i am at her home for a few days.

Thanks for a chance to win your giveaway Ellyn....

ikisti said...

The Mister does the dishes in our house. Him and the washing machine that is. :)

Nanbon44 said...

ok Pick Me, Pick ME

I am the dish washer in this house, would be nice if hubby got dishwater hands now and then... as for dinner tonight, Hubs took me to Ruby Tuesday Restaurant...

gccmom said...

These are lovely. I do the dishes in our house. It is one chore I usually enjoy. My family gets annoyed because I don't use the dishwasher but opt to do the dishes by hand. There is something therapeutic about it for me.

April in Autumn said...

I live alone so i do the dishes. And I love fancy towels in my house!

aprill (at) gmail (dot) com

Wehaf said...

I'm having roast chicken drumsticks with broccoli tonight. :)

urchiken at gmail dot com

Barbara said...

I do the dishes at our house. Oh for some helpers!

sixtyfourcolorbox said...

We both do the dishes. I've trained my boyfriend well. I rinse the dishes and he loads them into the dishwasher.

ewebewe said...

I do the dishes but my son helps put them away. Thank you for the chance to win such cheery towels.

Elizabeth said...

So pretty! The dishes duty is shared at our house and we're even teaching the kiddos to load their own dishes in the dishwasher, with mixed results for the two year old!

handworkteacher said...

I love your choice of colors!

My husband probably can't even tell you which of the houses we have lived in had dishwashers! Though it is always my chore, I am so grateful now to have a dishwasher that doesnt even need pre-rinsing!!

Shayla Sharp said...

I'd love to win--I think that's the only way I'm getting crocheted washcloths! It took me an hour to get a 1 inch x 4 inch piece when I tried to crochet, so sad. lol

Stephanie said...

I love these - such fun colors! In our house I wash dishes and my husband puts them away. It's the next best thing (for me) to not having to do them at all :)

The Sewing Dork said...

Strangely, I always volunteer to do the dishes at our house. After a long day of taking care of the house and the kids, I like that "alone" time that dishwashing affords me. I also love to use beautiful linens like these to make the job seem more luxurious!

angiew said...

My kitchen is green, I love these! My wonderful husband does the dishes in my house! I am one lucky gal.

angela.wahl86@yahoo.com

SHANA said...

I do the dishes here. Sadly lol. I love the cloths and towels. They are gorgeous.

Sherry said...

I love your generous giveaway. Dishes are done by both my hubby and I but I sometimes think he does a little more dishes and I do more of the cooking.

Digital Misfit said...

My favorite colors! I love that beautiful set.
Dishes are a shared chore around here - if you cook, you are off the hook!

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

It's wintry weather here at the moment so I'm cooking a beef pho (Vietnamese noodle soup dish) for dinner!

Sis-O said...

I do the dishes since i am the one home all day. My husband will pitch in when home on weekends. Lovely cloths and dish towels. thank =you

Appie said...

Beautiful! Washing the dishes is my daughter's chore. :-)

Louisa said...

I hope for the dishwashing fairy to show up but it's usually me who does the dishes. I heart all crochet - esp. after my dismal attempts at it.

Jenilyn said...

I'm one lucky girl who's Hubby does the dishes!! Thanks for the giveaway!

WhimsyLoft dot com said...

When I cook, my sister does the dishes. When she cooks, I do the dishes. We take turns :-)

Love the colours! I'm the one who's always stuck with the dishes because I'm usually the one who does the cooking and finds that there's nothing left to cook with! haha

Cass said...

Gorgeous colours. I wash the dishes and if I'm lucky then hubby or my son dry them. Often I do both.
Tonight we ate pasta. :)
Hugs, CK

elflyn said...

We both do the dishes together. Soon though our boys will be big enough to do them.

Cahrenholtz said...

Such a pretty set. They would go lovely with my mess of dishes that I'll be cleaning after tonight's dinner of chicken chili.

kobelcm@hotmail.com

Christine said...

The girls do the dishes in our house. They do it with very bad grace though, so a set of nice dish cloths/towels mih=ght cheer them up. Oh and we are having asparagus in cheese sauce for tea tonight

Cinnamon said...

Sadly, I do most of the dishes around here. As soon as the littles are old enough though...
I made crockpot chicken, roasted potatoes and zucchini, and braised chard for dinner. Love the crockpot.

Vesuviusmama said...

What a wonderful color combo! I am the dishwasher in my house. We actually have a dishwasher (you know, the machine), but in the 8 years I've lived here, I have probably used it only about 8 times. I really prefer to do them by hand. If only there weren't new dirty dishes as soon as I finished the old dirty dishes!

Rookie said...

These will brighten up any dreary dishes day :) My hubby is pretty good with doing the dishes, but it's mainly me as I'm the cook as well.

Gorgeous! I'm the dishwasher, but I have a husband who can wipe up and kids-in-training to put dishes away!

Krystina said...

My dear hubby! Thankfully, because it gives me a little sewing time!

Jenny said...

My partner and I take it in turns to do the dishes. We both hate it equally though.

Karen said...

I do the dishes. Your lovely dishcloths and towels would be right at home in my kitchen.

Laurel09 said...

My husband and I share the dishwashing duties. Admittedly, though, he does them more often than I do! It's fair, though -- I do all of the cooking.

enbartlett said...

My husband is the main cook and does most of the dishes in our family. And we're having a beef roast tonight. My kitchen walls are the same green as in your wash cloths & towels so they would be perfect. Thanks!

Brianna said...

Those towels are adorable! I do the dishes (usually) because my husband does the cooking (usually!) but sometimes, he does the cooking and the dishes because he is a wonderful man! (Aren't I the luckiest?)

Glaucia said...

since the dishes are not done by themselves, unfortunatelly, here we share the job, sometimes it's me, sometimes my daughter. Also, here we are experiencing the first cold days, so, tonight i'll cook a yummy potato soup, with a bit of cheese inside :)
Thanks a lot for the nice giveaway!
greetings from Brazil!

Joanna said...

I'm lucky. My husband usually does the dishes, especially now that I'm 8 months pregnant! I love homemade dishcloths!

SewNurse said...

my wonderful husband does the dishes in our home :)

scoopace said...

From the pile sitting in the sink, I'd say nobody is doing the dishes in our house! Ha ha! Guess I should stop browsing all the cool blogs I find from the Giveaway day and go do them!

Megan Nadalet said...

How cute! We both do the dishes, which works out well!

Desiree said...

oh these are adorable. we all rotate on dishes, but my husband usually picks up our slack :)

Sangeetha said...

I cook and he does dishes although we occasionally swap

Close Knit said...

I do the dishes in my house, usually with my handknit dishclothes.

Jackie said...

Omigosh these are NOT green and grey!!! I am in the middle of painting and redecorating my kitchen...green walls!! These would SO totally match in there it's as if you made them for me personally. So pretty. We have a dishwasher, so everyone is responsible for rinsing and putting their own dishes in, then we sort of take turns emptying it. I still wash my grandson's little dishes and spoons and the bigger bowls by hand though.
Thank you for the awesome giveaway...I will keep my fingers crossed!

chels said...

I am so blessed and grateful that my husband does the dishes in our house! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Georgia said...

Okay, first, green is my absolutely favorite color and I love these.
Second, I'm the dish doer, but we just got our first every dishwasher! So my job is much easier than it used to be. ;)

Cary said...

Your towels are beautiful. My hubby and I share the dish washing duties! And tonight's dinner couldn't get much easier -- take-out Thai! :)

Jeanne Gwin said...

I love these types of dishcloths and would be delighted to win these pretties of yours. Thanks for the chance.

Libby said...

Lunch is our big meal (hubby is a 2nd shifter !) but I made quinoa pilaf (mmmm), chili, yeast rolls, veggie medley and watermelon.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I live alone except for my dog, Joe. I do all the dishes in my house. I washed Joe's plate every night, too.

Lynn said...

i do the cooking and my husband and son do the dishes. tonight it's rice and beans and a spinach salad. i just love your giveaway! thanks.

Linda said...

Hello, I'm the primary dish washnger in my family. And I'm making meatloaf and baked potatoes for dinner this evening. Thanks for the chance to win. Linda

wipgirl said...

Such pretty towels and dish clothes! I rent a couple rooms in my sister and her husband's house and generally speaking we don't cook together (I eat mostly vegetarian, they're very meat and potatoes), so we each mostly do our own dishes! Sometimes I do some of hers and sometimes she does some of mine, but largely we do our own.

I live with four students and we all do our own dishes.

A younger cousin of mine comes over to help me with my dishes.

Morgan said...

I'm a firm believer in beautiful dishtowels. :) I do most of the dishes, as I'm a mom/housewife, but hubs does help when he gets a chance.

Jessica Helen said...

unfortunately to say i do most of the dishes in my house - no dishwasher either! but these dish towels would make me a happier dish washer!

Laura said...

My hubby does the dishes :)

Stephanie Granite said...

luckily for me were pretty equal here at my house. I cook and do dishes about half the time and the hubby does it the other half. We have to be equal because if we just left it to one person it would probably never get done! Thanks for the chance to win

Steph Jacobson said...

Beautiful items--I love green & gray! And is that fabric Reunion by Sweetwater? Love! My husband does almost all of the cooking so I try to take care of the dishes. He sure dirties a lot of dishes, though!

dogwood said...

Super pretty!
My husband and I share the dishes. :) ... just whoever has the time

Sue said...

I live alone (all the kids are grown and gone), so if the dishes have to get done it has to be me. I'd rather be out in the barn snuggling lambs!

I do the dishes and have not had an electric dishwasher for 20 years. Much of the time, I find dish washing a bit meditative. Now having new dish cloths would certainly cheer me up. I do put my kids to work when they stop by to share a meal so they would get a chance to use the beautiful dish towels.

Thank you for the opportunity to win!

Danielle said...

My mother made a rotating dishwasher duty list for me and my siblings; even though we don't do dishes more than three times a week each we still don't like doing dishes :). Thanks for the giveaway; love the bright green.

Our 11 year old is in charge of the dishes as we now have a dish washer but it use to be me... For dinner? No idea because thats my hubby's talent haha...

Love your crocheting. It's beautiful. I'm the chief dish washer in my house so these would definitely cheer me up.

Sasha said...

Dinner tonight is risotto! We're just trying to run our cupboards down before moving house, so lots of food is store cupboard meals. Veggies for tonight are from the freezer, frozen from our garden!

JulieD said...

homemade dish cloths are the best. that is what I like to use when I'M cleaning up dinner!

Lynne said...

Pretty washcloths! So cheerful!
We take turns washing the dishes. Thanks for the great giveaway!

I do the dishes. I've seen that type of dishcloth and would love to try one out. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

Dish duty in our house is a famly affair. The husband and I wash all of the dishes that are not dishwasher safe and the kiddos load and unload the dishwasher.

These little goodies would be a perfect addition to our kitchen.

Emma said...

I live alone, so do all the washing up!

brandi said...

if by "wash the dishes" you mean load the dishwasher... i do that. however if dishes get washed by hand it is done by my mother in law because she doesn't believe in waiting on a dishwasher load to finish washing before loading the rest of the dishes into the machine! she's old fashioned like that!

Megan said...

Those are lovely - and the green is just delicious! I typically do the dishes, although my husband will too. My kids are still a little too clumsy for me to have them help, but soon enough, they'll be doing them!

Cindy @ Creating at Home said...

Dish duties are shared in our house. I'm sure we'd all enjoy the chore a little more with your lovely dishcloths and tea towels! Thanks for the chance to enter.

Maureen Hayes said...

I NEED this set. When I was married there was a family member who crocheted dishclothes and they were the best things!!! I do the dishes, by hand!! UGH! Just in case, my info is: scrapgirl1467 (at) yahoo (dot) com

Little Spool said...

My husband does the dishes when they've been piling up for a while, otherwise I do them. Our silly dishwasher doesn't seem to get them very clean, so your cute washcloths would certainly help!

I'm baking a cheesy pizza tonight at the request of my 5 year old birthday girl!!

Kris said...

Everyone rinses their own dishes, then whoever notices the dishwasher is full starts it. The dishtowels are lovely, and I would love the chance to win them.

Brooke Crook said...

I do the majority of the dishes but my husband is a big help.

Very pretty! I am usually the one who loads the dishwasher at night and my husband unloads it in the morning. I do all the hand wash only items.
