There may have been a time when I thought I would put the ironing board away, but the truth is, I use the iron a lot. I work on quilts in spurts, and the board stays up right outside the office/studio/messiest room in the apartment, in the hallway next to the kitchen. I wore a hole into the last ironing board cover. I purchased it maybe three years ago. While I loved the fabric, as time went by, I developed a dislike for the maker of said cover. I'm kind of happy to have her bad karma away from my board. This new, fresh cover, was purchased from an Etsy shop. I had a hard time deciding on just the one, as Paula uses fabrics I love, including Denyse Schmidt, Amy Butler, and Joel Dewberry. I finally settled on this one, a retro kitchen items print fabric that sort of matches my retro inspired kitchen. This board makes me happy. Hopefully it will inspire beautiful sewing and quilting, until I wear another hole in it.
