    If I had to do all that I would never have time to sew.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    How the times have changed, never have I adhered to this recommendation, but I know that there were a lot of June Cleavers out there at one time and we are all the better for them.

    Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade. When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing. When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a little bag of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on. If you are fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home, and you will not look neatly put together , you will not enjoy your sewing."

    I had to look it up! The free dictionary says "Chalk made of a soft white variety of talc, used by tailors for marking fabrics and by dry cleaners for removing grease spots" In other words, I'd guess it's just powder to keep the oily-ness off of our hands from getting onto the fabrics.

    Isn't it great to know we have been so liberated that these things seem funny to us? There was a time when that advice was important

    Lol. My husband hates it when I wear makeup, especially lipstick. He'll refuse to kiss me if I'm wearing it. I suppose that's one way to keep him from getting frisky while I'm in the middle of a project.

    This was also posted last week under "You HAVE to read this". However, that post and my reply disappeared.
    Thanks for the info on french chalk, I've always wondered what that is.

    I'm not fearful of a vister dropping in. If I don't expect you, I don't go to the door.

    If my husband came home and I was all dolled up, he would think he was in the wrong house. LOL And, I am "mentally" prepared when sewing in my PJs. After 50 yeard of married life, we're OK as long as we are with each other.

    I have been caught many times when I'm a mess. Once by my new neighbors. Their first impression of me was with dirty hair, no bra, and coffee stains on my pjs. It was 2 in the afternoon and I had been quilting since 7AM. They may have something there. At least a shower before I sew.

    Dishes are usually put in the dishwasher as dirtied. I shower, dress and do hair and makeup every morning as part of my normal routine. Don't like to wear dresses, only if necessary but what I have on is always clean.
