Ode to my Ironing Board Cover

Oh Ironing board cover you and I have been through a lot--many great fabrics have been pressed, beautiful creations have started from that first press and bursts of steam from our best friend Oliso, but I couldn't protect you from the tornadoes, you know them well A.K.A. Isabel & Gabby.

from the numerous of times you've had a taste of chocolate, been smothered with chapstick, received drops of honey and peanut butter, who knows what else.....

 you've been washed, rinsed, spun and dried plenty of times your skin pilling and fibers have been separating, but we still cranked out outfits and quilts you, my beloved ironing board cover and I.

Alas, it was time for a face-lift, one that I should have done a long time ago.....

I hope you like your make-over.  I surely do, makes me want to iron clothes all day on you  :P

oh how it's just the little things that make me happy nowadays.  I highly recommend everyone creating their own ironing board cover, it's guaranteed to motivate and inspire :o)

Hi there, my blog is telling me that your blog has linked to mine, specifically this post! I can't see a link though.

Great ironing board overhaul by the way.
