    Yes, I made a wall hanging for my laundry room! Well, I actually spend a good bit of time in there, I always fold laundry as I get it out of the dryer standing right there in the laundry room. Yesterday, while doing laundry chore, I started thinking that it would be great to have something pleasant to look at while I am in there( I actually painted the room sometime in January) and right there while I was folding unmentionables, I started designing this wall hanging in my head. :mrgreen: When done with chores, I headed to my sewing room and started executing the design, then I finished it and hung it today! I didn't use batting, just flannel in this one. It measures about 25 by 28.
    Don't tell anyone, but I am actually looking forward to doing laundry next week :thumbup: :lol:

    Well, I think you've been reading my mind! DH and I worked in our basement last week and I ended up with a 6' section of kitchen-type bottom cabinet with a nice countertop. I cleaned the room and got everything arranged like I wanted. Now I can take clothes out of the dryer and fold them right away. As I was folding my first load, I stood staring at a blank wall thinking about how great a wallhanging would look on there. I must get to work on one now.

    Jill, I just absolutely love folding clothes right away, cuts down on getting distracted and leaving clothes everywhere, I just know if I do it right there and then, fold it, put into piles depending on where it is going and then distribute accordingly, it'll get done!
    Can't wait to see what you come up with!
