small projects, gettin smaller!

just need to bind this dish mat and i can cross it off my small projects list!  woohoo!  and i used up a remnant and a fat eighth or so of two other fabrics from my stash.

i made one awhile back, but it wasn't big enough to hold all of the dishes that air dry after unloading the dishwasher.  yes, i know, i could hand dry them as i unload it.  but for me, setting them on the counter is an easier solution, since half of what gets washed is cups and cereal bowls. they get used again about as fast as i unload them.  win win!  (in my book anyways)

anyways, i'm using store bought binding for this one.  we have a stack of dvds from the library and it's a scorching 102.5 degrees outside.  sounds like a good day for movies and binding!

by the way, is it common for dishes to not dry in the dishwasher?  even if i use the drying cycle, they never get all the way dry.  any brand you'd recommend? we may be in the market for a new dw soon, ours is making strange noises...

Very cute! I like the fabric you used.

I think all dishwashers kinda stink... we have been through several of them. :( Do you have Jet-Dry? That is supposed to help. My plastics never dry anyway. Good luck!!!

I use jet dry and they dry pretty well. We have a new machine though that came with the house a yr ago. Sorry not trying to brag:( Your dish mat is super sweet!
