I got Simple Sewing out of local library. I think I may have to buy it. I can never find dishtowels that I like and there is pattern to sew your own with a little loop to hang them up.

We’ve been burning coal in our stove at home to reduce the amount of oil we use for our furnace. I have mixed feelings about the coal for a number of reasons but that’s for another discussion.
