It's the Little Things, Isn't It?

As I was folding/putting away laundry, this little scene caught my eye, and made me all happy for a just a moment.

Sometimes it's just the silliest things that catch you off guard, and make you smile..

Don't Forget to Wash Your Face!

I mentioned that I've been making washcloths again, right?
Lots and lots of washcloths.
I can't help it - they're fun (and dead simple) to make, and I love the final product.

I decided that for the New Year, I wanted a completely fresh set.
Starting the year off on the right foot, I suppose.
How decadent to have a fresh cloth for each day of the week. (If I were a more clever pup, I'd embroider "Sunday, Monday, etc..." on each one!)

Only wrinkle in my plan? I ran out of ecru colored yarn.

Eh. No worries, just use what you have on hand, right?

Which explains the random blue/purple/teal ones thrown into the mix.
(It's funny, they obviously work exactly the same as the natural colored ones, but I don't like them quite as well. Except for maybe the teal one - because it's all matchy-matchy with the wall color in the bathroom. Which also makes me inexplicably smiley.)

So, yeah. I guess today is one of those days where I'm just in an easy mood.

It's not such a bad place to be...
In a shiny happy mood, and with a clean face, too.

It IS the little things....after all, we can't just get excited about the big things, cause they only come along every now and then. (guess that's what makes them big)
Anyway, I've long proclaimed my love of the hand-knit dish/washcloth. Love em!

Ahhh, handmade things are da bomb! Your stack makes me smile and think of my beautiful washcloths that I have from you.

I like all the colours, the blue is my favourite.

I really need to learn how to make these instead of having to keep asking friends.

love my handmade wash clothes. Simple luxury everyday when I use them. Can't remember the last time I used a store bought one.

Aah, what a very pretty pile of washcloths! Yes -- get excited over the little things -- and DELIRIOUS over the big ones! ;-)

Oh gosh.

Do you know how much I LOVE those washcloths?

I use mine in the kitchen and there's nothing like them. NOTHING. I can't get enough of them.
It's almost to the point where I want to learn to knit because I'm *that* crazy about them. And let me tell you: Me? And knitting needles? Probably not a good combo.
