Gearing up to kill the paper addiction

Slowly but surely (and I mean sloooowwwly)  I'm making some progress on my Stash Buster / Going Greener To-Do List.  I've decided to whittle a bit at our paper towel habit.

We use paper towels for cleaning, for wiping up spills, for dinner napkins, for a lazy lunch "plate."  We use A LOT of paper towels.  This is going to be one hard habit to break.  

I've spent some of the Labor Day weekend cutting, pressing, pinning, pressing, sewing (repeating) a giant stack of cloth dinner napkins.  Here are the few finished napkins. . . .


. . . from this giant pile I've cut so far.  (That's my machine under there, somewhere.)

How exciting!

One of our hens finally laid her first egg!  There was quite a celebration among all the Monkeys when they found it.  OK, OK.  I squealed a bit, too.


And then. . . .
