A laundry freshen up


and after!

Quite satisfied with my effort to freshen up the laundry.

Two and a half metres of a navy striped cotton poplin and I was underway , drafting up some new patterns for lined laundry bags and a coordinating ironing table cover. My intention was to give the space a fresh nautical feel ......I was thinking the laundry cabin of a sailing ship headed for far off shores.

Looking at the photos the wall behind looks a little plain. I wonder if I should add something or leave as is.

And of course , a rustic block of hand crafted soap is always a pleasure to behold,
sitting on the windowsill in this area of the house. My soaps are available for purchase over at Etsy.
