And when I look in the drawer...and see just how many packets we seem to have...I think that maybe we do indeed have enough...and that I would like to share some of my dishcloth stash.
So this is my giveaway: from my four favourite prints I have made up two identical little bundles to be sent to two people whose names are picked randomly after commenting on this post. If you would like to have your name entrered into the hat I wondered if in your comment you might share a couple of your favourite words. This is a running game that I have with quite a few of my friends (although I don't give them dishcloths for taking part in these discussions) - although often the focus is on our most loathed words, but please DON'T tell me which words you dislike as it might end up as one big unreadable list of hideousness and then I would have to keep all the dishcloths myself - I really want to hear which words you love the sound of (for me: inclement), which words roll around in your mouth in a pleasing way (discombobulated), or a word that has lovely connotations for you (textiles, matryoshka, babushka, vanilla...I love all these words). I also love hearing my friend refer to his Bonne Mama....this somehow sounds so much nicer than grandmother.
The commenty goodness of lurkers, bloggers, non-bloggers, those across the seas, or first-time visitors is all most welcome, but do make sure you either leave an email address, add this to your Bloglines, or call back after the draw to check if you have won, as Blogger is often quirky in whose email addresses it will allow me to see!
We have had a nice quiet couple of days with Mr Teacakes off work toward the end of last week - we spent our time creating a board game with the Zebra-girl & Dinosaur-boy, holding our own Sport's Day with a focus on hurdling (stopwatches and a competitive spirit were present), baking cakes and visiting National Trusty gardens and, most delightful of all, eating Honeycomb ice-creams in the sun. This wasp (above) very kindly chose not to sting me while I took a picture of him, despite the fact that I interrupted its drinking by putting my camera about an inch away from its stripy little body.
(p.s....did I mention that they are washable?....and so their loveliness lasts for months!) x
