Tuesday's design from Ladies of the Week

has our our busy homemaker ironing after doing all of that laundry yesterday.

Even though there are so many clothes that are wrinkle free these days, I still use my iron now and then. How about you?

Another delightful design! Yes, I do still iron Popa's better shirts; it's a matter of pride. Most of his work shirts don't get anything, but I do a little touch up on mine. Tablecloths? I don't like to iron them but I do.

I iron a lot. Seems some of the new stuff still needs that touch! Love the pattern!

HAVE A GREAT EVENING...WITH LOVE JANICE

These are the most delightful designs, Kathleen. Are you going to embroider them on towels?

I loved doing housework. And I certainly liked to iron. I also enjoyed hanging the clothes on the line, but here in SE Texas I had to stop. I ended up having to put the clothes in the dryer anyway to get rid of tiny little white bugs that were attracted to light colored clothes as well as my beautiful pink roses.

I certainly wish I could spend my time tending to my home and creativity once again.

Blessings for the day,
Marianne xo
