Wash-Day Blues

The title of this post may be a bit of a misnomer, considering no one single day is 'wash-day' in the CraftLee House .... every day is washday !
The last few days have been a busy time in the laundry after a trip to my family in Donegal this weekend.

Heres a really beautiful shot of Errigal, Co Donegal (the second highest mountain in Ireland) taken by my old friend (the super tallented) John Rafferty, marine photographer.

oh!!! & I can't resist posting another one John's photos of the fantastically named 'Poisioned Glen'

Isn't that beautiful?

Back to the Wash-Day Blues....I seem to have spent a lot of time washing, drying, ironing folding and putting away since I've come home.
I even sorted through the odd-sock pile yesterday... Where oh! WHERE do they all come from ?!
Somehow I always imagine that all the mates to my ever increasing collection of odd socks are off somewhere sunny having waaayyyy more fun than the poor socks that are left behind !
Does anyone out there have a crafty idea to use up a waist high pile of odd socks?

Anyway I've been dying to call a post 'Wash-day Blues' just for an excuse to share with you  some cotton facecloths I made.....Taa Daa!!

Not quite as impressive as the Poisioned Glen I grant you, but much handier for washing your face with !

Two simple crochet squares made from two 'odd' balls of cotton I picked up in France last summer.
I followed the pattern from 'Cute and easy crochet' by Niki Trench

Out of my yarn stash & into the batroom....

A very quick project I made two in one night !

I'm off now to soak one of these puppies in cool water
(or maybe some ice-cold Sauvingon Blanc) 
& drape it over my tired eyes after a long day in front of the computer!

Thanks for visiting !
