Block of the Month & Farm Laundry
We are still in the middle of harvest. A few rainy days has made it possible for me to actually sew. My quilt club started a block of the month last January. I was really good about keeping up with the blocks until the weather had gotten warm. Now is the time to start catching up. This quilt won't be finished for Christmas, but I am planning on having the top all put together by then. I am hoping to be quilting it this winter.
Why do I have a picture of Dean's dirty farm clothes?
This is the type of laundry I have when he is working on the combine. His coveralls are so dirty that he left them out on the garage floor, which I really appreciate. Right now I have what is considered an old fashioned washer with a large agitator and his clothes come out pretty clean. I have looked at the new water saving washing machines and I am beginning to wonder if the new machines will handle this type of dirt. They don't even have an agitator. My washer is working just fine, but it's over 15 years old. Water saving washing machines in our area is not a concern. We actually have too much water and flooding can be an issue.
If you have any advice, please feel free!
Maybe the new washing machines do a good job, but I'm wondering.
It's nice to stop just for a second to notice the beautiful fall colors.
