Oh, my trusty washboard!
I've been pained by the recent demise of my trusty
washboard. I bought it at an antique shop years ago.
I use it when I am felting my hand-felted hats. Sadly
it broke. My husband tried to patch it up by putting
some temporary strapping on it—buying me time to get
a little more work done before shows. I thought
getting a new one would take a while or involve some
searching on ebay, but it looks like the Aubuchon's
hardware in Maynard (just a few minutes walk) is
going to be able to resupply me. I'm sure it will
take me a while to get used to the new kid, but what
are you going to do? I'll still keep the old one.
While felting I enjoyed thinking about all the
clothes it has washed in its lifetime.
