    Cute! I understand your feelings here. Mne has been out for 2 weeks and it will be Christmas Eve before the guy has the parts and is able to get back to our mountain home.

    Just like us quilters...when life hands us lemons, we make lemonade!! Or is that when life hands us scraps we make something useful!!!

    That is really cute, I would tell him either get it fixed or he will have to do the dishes. My HD does the dishes even with a dishwasher. Cookie64

    what a great idea!! I usually wash my pans by hand and lay out towels on the counter. Will definitely make a couple of these.

    This is absolutely brilliant! I don't even have a dishwasher (kitchen so small one wouldn't fit in), and I live in a very hard water area so I'm always struggling to deep my metal dish drainer looking decent. I am definitely going to copy your idea and make a couple of these. Thank you so much for sharing...I love it when someone comes up with such a great idea that we can all copy!

    Wow - what a great idea! I bought one of those plain ivory dishmats but I'm definitely thinking about making a cover for it or just taking it apart and using it for the inside with a pretty outer cover and re-binding the edges. I would have never thought of that if you hadn't shown your pretty mat. Thanks again for sharing and I hope you get your dishwasher up and running soon.

    So cute! Tell your DH that I have a better story to tell.....we started to remodeled our home in l979
    and when we did the kitchen in winter of l984-5 my DH bought the top of theline Kitchen Aid
    dishwasher and had it built in the new kitchen cabinets.....it is now 2013 and it still isn't hooked up
    to water or electricity. But it does store dishes!!! My DH passed away in 2006, so now I have
    to find some one to finish it, just don't know when. Wish I lived closer to you I would give you
    the dishwasher!!! lol

    I bought a microfiber dish drying mat for our camper. I decided to use it in my kitchen and my husband used a magnetic clip on one corner so it could hang on the side of the refrigerator to dry. The microfiber one does not drape very sell over the handle on the stove and/or frig. I love your idea so much better - may just have to dig around in the stash of fabric and leftover batting and make a prettier one for my kitchen.
