(Now on with the show!)

 It MUST be said that I LOVE folding laundry. As a little kid I can remember being taught how to fold the towels.  I can still remember the way the warm terrycloth felt on my fingers. I may have mentioned it before, but when I was in high school I folded laundry for a young couple from our church to earn money. So as you can imagine I've put a lot of thought into what my ideal laundry room would look like. I thought it would be perfect to have a laundry room with a big table for folding, that way if something came up and I wasn't done folding, I could just close the door on all that laundry mess and when I got back everything would be exactly as I left it. And, in the mean time all my perfectly arranged piles wouldn't be in anyone's way. Paradise! Right?!
Well now I'm not so sure. For the longest I've been folding laundry on the living room floor. I just LOVE how that giant pile turns into a bunch of pretty little piles. The Hub on the other hand HATES this because I take over the entire living room in the process.
But now, I think I like this EVEN BETTER!!!
I know Su Casa doesn't mention it online, or anywhere in the literature, but our Buster Dining Table offers 21 sq. ft. of folding heaven!!! (There's 28 sq. ft. with the leaf in.)
(Aren't little girl clothes the cutest things ever! All pink and tiny... SIGH!!!)

Plus it allows me to be right in the thick of things rather than stuffed back in a laundry room somewhere in the east wing (ha ha). Above all, and much to the Hub's delight, if I fold on the dining room table, I have to put everything away by the next meal.

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!

Great place to fold. I use my dining table as well because my laundry room is so small. Katherine S
