89. To Hold Sheets in Place

I worked out a little scheme which has saved
me a lot of trouble and inconvenience, so I thought I would pass it on.

The sheets and bed clothes are constantly pulling out at the foot, so one

day I sewed three buttons on to my mattress with strong thread, and worked

buttonholes in the hems of the sheets to correspond, and since then have

not had trouble with their pulling up in the middle of the night.
