  5. I actually enjoy housework, now that I am home and have time to do it ;-), but my fave has to be ironing and putting the clothes away - seeing the empty clothes basket is such a good feeling ;-)

    ReplyDelete

  11. My favourite is pushing the button on the dishwasher! Works well for me!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My favorite household chore? I don't have one. In fact, my favorite saying is, "Why do housework? Six months later you have to do it again!"

    Okay, okay, if I have to pick one it would be dusting. It cleans my furniture off like a chalkboard eraser so I have a nice clean surface to draw on when it gets dusty again.

  13. I don't have any favorite household chores, but the one I mind the least is emptying the dishwasher.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Favourite chore? Does encouraging my teenager to do his chores count? Washing up .. would be my choice

    ReplyDelete
  15. Putting things away after the weekend. Things get a bit higgeldy piggeldy over the weekend and I like the feeling of 'getting the house back' on Monday. I love the lived in look...until I can't see the kitchen table any more lol. VermontPines@aol.com

  19. Hands down it is laundry. Especially when I can hang it outside. But inside is good too & even coming from the dryer I just love to do laundry & fold all those nice clean, good smelling things! Nice giveaway. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. If I had to pick one, it would be turning on the dishwasher (ha)! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, laundry is good because you can sew while you wait. And cooking is good because it's nice to have something to eat. But really, a favorite? They're called CHORES for a reason.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hmmmm.....favorite household chore. I guess washing dishes would be the lesser of all evils. I get instant gratification!

  29. Please don't tell my husband this, but I think my favorite chore is making the bed. I never used to make it when I was a kid, but when I got married, it was the one thing that my hubby really insisted get done every day - he couldn't sleep in an unmade bed! Well, over the years, I've really learned to enjoy the thrill of a freshly made bed! Oh, and I really love vacuuming since I got my Dyson......

    ReplyDelete

  39. I like folding laundry and washing dishes by hand... but I hate putting away laundry and putting away dry dishes! What is that all about? Maybe because my cupboards and drawers are usually unorganized :(

    Anyways, that fabric is making me swoon and I would love to win it!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. Most household chores are, in their own way, soothing and produce immediate results. But, favorite would probably be vacuuming. It is the one chore I nearly never assign the children.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love hand washing dishes! I work through a lot of problem solving while washing them. Alas, now that we have a dishwasher I find myself only washing pans and knives so most of my problem solving as of late has been trying not to drop them on my feet!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't like any household chores! The closest thing to a household chore I like is watering the garden.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Well, I do love cooking. Does that count?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love this fabric, it is in my etsy favourites!
    I actually love hanging out the washing! I have a system!

  55. Favourite chore?? Did you say favourite??? does anyone really like cleaning??? I hate it, and I have holiday accommodation and I have to clean that too and that's worse cleaning after other people, now look, you have made me rant...LOL. Okay if I must pick something, I would say hanging the washing out because it always smells so nice straight out of the machine. Linda

    ReplyDelete
  56. Making the bed! Because when it is done I can spread a nice warm homemade quilt over the top..... Yep that would have to be my favourite.....

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  85. Sanitizing the kitchen counter. I like the feeling of bacteria going bye bye. lol

    ReplyDelete
  86. I like to organize stuff. Cleaning my kids rooms (they are very little) is fun because I have things so organized and everything has somewhere to go.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I think I like them all only if I can get into the mood of doing ;D

    ReplyDelete

  90. My favorite household chore is doing the laundry. I like the process off folding the clothes and making them neat and tidy. Sick, huh? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I typically despise housework but I sometimes thoroughly enjoy emptying cupboards and drawers, cleaning them and then reorganizing them. It's the librarian in me.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I would have to say, my top 3, in no particular order:
    Vacuuming
    Cleaning the Bathrooms
    Cleaning the Kitchen

    Dread them all until I've started, then I find them quite enjoyable, and the results are always the best!

    Who can enjoy their day with dishes in the sink and crumbs on the counter?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Ironing is my favourite. Very nice giveaway! Thanks :))

    ReplyDelete

  101. My favorite household chore is laundry. I do a lot of it, as I am a massage therapist, but whether it's for work or home, I like the ritual: wash, into dryer, fold while warm. Pile sheets & towels into functional & pretty stacks or hang shirts & pants while warm, & hang towels back in the bathroom. Sweet!
    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! :-)

  106. I actually enjoy weeding the garden. It's my quiet time and I get to reap the benefits all spring and summer.

    ReplyDelete
  107. This confuses most people, but washing the diapers. It's the best kind of laundry: already sorted and doesn't need folding and you know it reallllly needs to be washed! OK maybe I don't want to win cuz you'll just post this comment and people will see that I'm insane.

    ReplyDelete
  108. My favorite chore is laundry. I have always loved the smell of freshly laundered clothes. :-) I have been bugging DH to make me a clothes line outside. That would make them just about pefect.

    Please enter me in your drawing! Thank you!

    Those fabrics are lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Mine would have to washing clothes - it gives me a sense of satisfaction that I'm achieving something however it is actually cleaning itself and all I have to do is put it in the washing machine, add some soap and hang it on the line (and I get to go outside in the fresh air!) Thanks

  120. I quite enjoy hanging out the laundry, it has to be done a certain way. Don;t love ironing though.

  121. When I didn't work outside of the home I didn't mind doing housework since I was a stay-at-home mom and that was my job! However, since I don't have time doing chores, I am going to cheat and say cooking is my favorite chore - I guess it would be considred a chore since it has to be done, right? I just wish I had a maid to wash the dishes or at last clean up the kitchen and put them in the dishwasher!LOL

    ReplyDelete
  122. I am one of those vanishing people who loves to hang clothes out of doors. Whenever we have moved to a new house, the first thing I've had my husband do is put up clotheslines. In one case where this wasn't allowed, I used to tie up a line on wash day in our walled-in backyard where (hopefully) nobody could see it!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I really like ironing! I usually only iron things like tablecloths, napkins and new fabric so I'm always ironing things I like! If I had to iron shirts and sheets, I'm sure I'd hate it!

    ReplyDelete
  124. When I wrote the question I thought, a favorite household chore!! Who want to have this! I do not. I do not like anything with housekeeping. I just want to sew, quilt, stitching. That is why a have a dishwasher, washingmachine. Hope to hear from you and thanks for this give-away.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Sweeping! I sweep the kitchen floor several times and the rest of the houseat least once. If the floor is clean I fool myself into believeing the rest of the house is clean too :) and I get a little exercise while doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I would rather cook (or sewing hahaha) than do anything else! Pick me pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  127. That's hard, because I really don't know. But I guess it's washing the bed sheets because it's so nice to sleep on fresh smelling sheets.
