There's nothing like scheduling a visit from the carpet shampooing company to make one dig in and toss out. I've spent the past three days emptying closets and nooks and crannies. What a wonderful feeling to pare down to the essentials. I am such a hoarder! The curtains came down to be washed. The dogs' beds were torn apart and washed. I even thought I'd like to give the dogs baths, but think I'll save that for a warmer day.
At long last I finished a liner for my smallest vintage French laundry basket. I enjoy making these so much. Love the ruffle around the edge. It's reversible, too, and for sale in my Etsy shop.
