To dream that you are hanging out clothing on a clothesline, suggests that you are revealing hidden aspects of yourself, especially if they are underwear. The dream may also signify your hang-ups. In particular, if your are hanging white clothes in the backyard, then it indicates your desire for pureness and to be cleansed. You may also be proclaiming your innocence in some situation.
To dream that you are sewing, suggests that you are trying to make amends with others. There may be a situation or relationship that needs to be repaired. Perhaps you are creating a new self-image and taking on a new attitude. Alternatively, it represents fertility, growth, and emotional maturity.
To see a sewing machine in your dream, denotes that economizing will help you through difficult times.
Quilts--This one is for you Soozi--
To see a quilt in your dream, signifies harmony, protection, warmth, and pleasant and comfortable circumstances. Consider the color and pattern of the quilt for additional significance.
To see a soiled quilt in your dream, signifies carelessness in dress and manner.
To dream that you are baking, represents your creative self and you ability to make things happen. If you are mixing ingredients together that you normally would not combine, then it suggests that you need to find a connection between two seemingly different things. Perhaps these things that seem incompatible may yield surprising but positive results.
Do we dream about what we do? I think so, at least in fragments.
