Don't Talk to Your Textiles

The Ballband Dishcloth is done. I'm a little anxious about using it, though. It's just sitting on my desk. It looks at me every time I go out to wash dishes. "Mommy? Don't you love me, Mommy?"
"Of course I do. I made you."

"Then why can't I do what I was made to do?"

"I don't want to spoil you."

"How can being used spoil me?"

"You'll wear out."

"Yeah, Mom. So will you."

"Nice talk from a dishcloth."

On the sane front, I've been looking at a ga-horgeous pattern for a solid month. The kit, which includes fabric and sewing floss is listed at $54.99. That doesn't include shipping. I searched the a while back and found it for $9.99. That's if you can find a retailer selling it. Well, I searched again last night and found it on eBay for $2.75 + $2.50 shipping. Hoop-dee-do!
