I have said before that this blog real. What you see is what you get.
These are the views that greeted me this morning.
The ironing board is under this pile.
This is my sewing/ironing/spare bed room. There was more on the bed and even clothes in the basket to be folded.
And more on the sofa in the living room.
This was all washed early in the week but a busy week at work has meant that I didn’t complete the task by finishing the folding and ironing.
The total time taken to complete this was about 2 hours, however, this was interspersed by breakfast, a phone call and going to Maleny to pick up movie tickets for tonight.
The end result is here. Shirts, trousers and dresses hanging up.
Everything else folded. This is a mixture of items that were ironed and those that were simply folded.
And the bed and sofa are clear once more.
The next project was to shorten and hem 2 new pairs of trousers for GMan. I have done one pair but the others will have to wait until tomorrow as they are black and dark navy. The afternoon light is fading and I need bright daylight to be able to handsew dark fabrics.
It says a lot about my nature that your before pictures are largely something I try to avoid – which isn’t to say I’m tidier or more on top of things! I just work to have ‘tidy’ places to hide the mending or ironing! The ironing hangs on a rail I’ve installed on the ceiling on our laundry cabinet/closet. The mending is usually done the next time I watch TV (ie that’s very regular and it never piles up as I love mending!?). Anyhow, it’s weird how I bristle at not always being guest ready (or showroom level tidy).
