Fried Eggs on Toast

Sometimes you can find some very interesting things in thrift shops. Yesterday I was looking through a box of craft and sewing cast-offs at a thrift shop and came across a zip-lock bag filled with two balls of neatly wound cotton crochet thread and these scrubber dish clothes. I'd never seen anything like them before! They're brand new; obviously someones project for awhile that became forgotten over time. They remind me of fried eggs with their bright yellow centers and frilly white crochet on the side. For a mere 50 cents I was able to purchase the entire bag. A thrift store deal, for sure! They are 'too cute' to use yet, but maybe in awhile I'll try one out.


  1. oh these are cute...I would have bought them too..

  2. These are darling! They do look like fried eggs, how fun. What a deal! I might even make one some day...I bet Lallee might too!

  3. How cute! They make me smile. ~Adrienne~

  4. Those are fabulous! I would absolutely use one, it would be a lot easier to smile while doing dishes that way!

  5. Oh! That's what they are, in the middle! I didn't 'see' it, till I read it. How cute!

    Please have a lovely Midsummer Night's Eve.

    Take Joy, as Dear Tasha said!

  6. Those are great and I know some very eager dishcloth crocheters who'd love that pattern.

  7. Oh those are adorable! I need to show my mother in Love.

  8. Very interesting! I never cease to be amazed at people's creativity.

  9. These look adorable!
