"Years ago,the rhythm of the average American housewife's life was fairly standard no matter where you went. Each day had its own task, and so the work got done in a logical, orderly fashion as the week progressed. It went like this:
Monday: Wash Day
Tuesday: Ironing Day
Wednesday: Sewing Day
Thursday: Market Day
Friday: Cleaning Day
Saturday: Baking Day
Sunday: Day of Rest
Today at Loose Ends we had a special promotion.........get your ironing done for free (by Betty), while you shop. After all, it is Tuesday! Betty and I dressed like washerwomen for the event.Complete with aprons and curlers in our hair.
We had a good turnout,,,,,, And lots of fun, Betty loves to iron, she even got to press a chef's coat. Cool knot buttons on the coat!
Summer can be a slow time at a yarn shop......... this was a fun idea, and I hope there will be more.
