You Made Mom Cry

Recently, I asked readers of MA Fat Woman if they might be interested in acquiring one of mom's finely crafted hand/dish towels than can be hung from a drawer handle or the stove, anywhere actually. I asked readers to leave a comment and I would give them the information.

Now, I don't get a whole lot of comments. I'm not sure why; it could be that I'm not a big responder like some folks do. Or, the story was so funny or moving that it left you speechless. (I like that one) I'm not one that has to have the last word, so mainly, I just let the story speak for itself. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE comments, and that's why I was surprised that the dish towels didn't receive any comments, not one.

Goodness! You would have thought I was knocking on doors for donations or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army the way everyone avoided that post.

Of course, mom saw the lack of comments in a totally different light than I did. I could hears tears in her voice as she began the rant with, "I thought you said people read that blog of yours. I worked really hard on crocheting those towels. You'd think that someone, anyone, would at least say they were pretty."

If you have the time, check out Mom's towels and tell her how pretty they are. Trust me, it'll make life easier for everyone.

Yes, they were really cute! I wish I knew how to crochet. Keep it up, Mom!

Your Mom's towels really are pretty and would brighten up a kitchen for the holidays. I'm sorry I didn't say so before... I've just been in a huge hurry to drop and click lately.

A Lil Enchanted,

They are adorable, If I knew how to crochet I would do nothing but make cute little dish towels all day long. I do know how to knit, one stitch only, and have tons of scarves all over the house.

I think the dish towels are very pretty. I wish I was crafty. I "try" to quilt but I pick it up then forget about it. Tell your mother that I appreciate peoples talents and she has talent. Some people dont realize how much time these things take. ~jen

Aw that's so sad! They are beautiful and it takes talent to do that so kudos!

They are very pretty and I'm sure very time consuming to make. How much is she selling them for?

Rather nice place you've got here. Thanx for it. I like such themes and everything that is connected to them. BTW, why don't you change design :).
