Tooty Fruity Crocheting

I have finished my summer fruit dishcloths and couldn't be happier with how they turned out.  They are bright and cheery and can make this household chore just a bit less mundane.  I have to admit that I haven't used them yet though.  I will though - believe me!  Can't decide if I want to add seeds to the watermelon or just leave it plain.  The pattern is a basic crochet circle and changing yarn colors.  I was inspired by the lovely blogger here.  I did not fold mine in half though so that I could use them in the sink.  Want to make a lime and an apple now.

I am also inspired by much talent found at SmallThings yarn-along!!!  I just finished reading The Amish Midwife by Mindy Starns Clark.  I have just started A Stranger's Wish by Gayle Roper.  I'm on an Amish-themed reading binge right now it seems, but I do enjoy them.  Go check it out and join the yarn-along too.

Have a great day!  Our family's trying to stay cool here, been much too hot these past days (112 heat index - yikes!!)
