I need to think up a better name for this room. It’s true that clothes get washed here, but it’s also one of the places I escape when I’m trying to get away from my keyboard. There’s no phone in this room. No computer. Just various art supplies, fabric and a sewing machine. It’s my rainy day retreat. With my garden picking up the slack on sunny days.
