“Flatwork” Paintings by Amy Sherald
I’m so envious of my friend Robin because she has her very own Miele mangle. It is a miracle machine that actually makes ironing fun. Give me a glass of wine and a pile of “flatwork” (sheets, towels, napkins and tablecloths), and I’m in domestic heaven.
I’ve noticed that clothing styles have become progressively less respectful of an iron. I don’t think wrinkles do anything for us. Isn’t it enough to have them covering my face? It seems illogical to keep the look going in my wardrobe.
