Libby is challenging us to show our ironing boards. I commented on her blog that my ironing board was still packed away. She replied and told me to find an old photo and post it. Instead I pulled out the ironing board on Sunday while I was Playing with Pink. This morning I took photos of my ironing board. Here's the board scrunched into a space.
Here's a close-up of the cover. If you look very, very hard you can see the stitchery pattern that was accidentally transferred onto the cover instead of the fabric. The transfer is slowly coming off, but it's no big deal.
I want to make a big ironing mat for the top of my island. A couple summers ago I purchased ironing board fabric from Iron E-Z, #2019. The fabric is heat resistant. Now I just need to a piece of wood to cover with batting and the fabric and I can put my regular ironing board to rest.
It's snowing here again tonight. I've lost count of how much snow we've received this year, but I know we are way ahead of our normal snowfall amounts. That's OK with me. I love the snow.
I'm have a quilting condo/house warming party the weekend of March 8 and 9. Some friends are coming over and we are going to play in my new studio. Would you like to join us on-line? We should have a lot of fun. Stay tuned for details.
