I kept thinking about how to display 365 dishcloths. I kept wishing for a large white wall. Then it hit me – our breezeway here at the shop is painted white brick and one whole side wall is totally free open space! I started a clothesline at the upper left corner and strung it across the top edge of the 20 ft long wall.
