"Your body is the first thing any child of man ever wanted. Therefore dispose yourself to be loved, to be wanted, to be available. Be there for them with a vengeance. Be a gracious, bending woman. Incline your ear, your heart, your hands to them.... To be a Mother is to be the sacrament - the effective symbol - of place. Mothers do not make homes, they are our home." from Bed and Board, Robert Farrar Capon

Fitted Sheets

For those of us who have been wondering...


  1. I never knew it was possible. Truly a housekeeping wonder.

  2. Well, not to boast or anything, but that's the method I finally figured out myself after a few years of marriage. Ahhh, feels good to have been doing at least one thing right all these years. :D

    (Now, as to the changing of all the sheets on all the beds in this house on a regularly working schedule, um, I've not quite got that down yet...)

  3. Oh my gosh! This is the single most important piece of info I have ever encountered on the web. I have struggled with this for decades. I even knew, secretly, that the way our mother taught us "just couldn't be right". So the flat surface seems to be the secret. Thanks and thanks again.

  4. Hey, that's pretty neat! I had come up with a different method but will certainly try this one!
