|then I had an idea to reuse this big plastic coffee canister for a dryer-top waste basket.|
I even had some of the Debbie Mumm fabric left from the clothespin bag that I sewed years ago.
I cut out a strip of the fabric, pressed under the edges and adhered it to the old coffee cannister with one coat of ModPodge on the can and then one over the fabric
. The fabric has several retro-homemakers on the squares and I used 3 of them on this can. It was amazing how nice they just fit too.
So if I get bored, one day I can look at the homemaker doing the laundry-
then another day I can watch her iron
or do her mending.
I may turn it around, but I never really get bored.
There is always something I need to do and just want to do in my home.
"Dirty laundry reminds me that someone has worked, someone has played, someone has eaten, someone has slept, someone has enjoyed their day just as they will tomorrow, if someone like me takes care of what they have to wear "
---- I cannot take credit for the quote but it sums up how I feel about the importance of homekeeping
