I haven't posted lately, actually, haven't done much of anything lately because it's been too hot and humid. I don't like summer, much. I'm way more of a winter chick. Bring on the snow!! :) Ok, I'm done whining for now. :)
So, what little HAVE I done? Well, I did get motivated by Pam to make a new ironing board cover. She told of her new beautiful cover and I figured I could MAKE one.
Here is my old one. I'm almost ashamed to show it here in public, but admitting that you need a new cover is the first step, right?? So, it was all stained up. I don't really know HOW it got like this. Occasionally I use the spray starch, but that's all I can think of. I've tried to wash it with bleach......didn't touch the stains. Oh well.
Here's the new one. I scrounged up some fabric from one of my boxes and I had a couple of yards of this fabric that I bought ages ago and don't really care for it anymore. I think it turned out ok. I just used the old one as a pattern, cut, sewed and here ya go! Someday I'll get some pretty fabric just for a new cover, but for now, this will do. At least it doesn't look icky and stained.
My new ironing board cover will come in handy when I get started quilting~I need to make a thank you quilt for a friend, and I FINALLY figured out what pattern I'll be using, so now I can get started on it. I will post it when it's done. I haven't been that motivated to start because I didn't know how I was going to put it together. Now that I have an idea, I am getting excited to get it started and done. :)
And that's what's new in my house. Today I have running around to do! :) Have a splendid day!!! :)
