As it often does, my quilt piecing ironing board cover had become thread bare.
Then frustration hit hard when I realized I could no longer just run to
Walmart, Target, K-Mart, Home Depot, Dollar General, Family Dollar, Big Lots, JoAnn’s, Deals, Lowe’s
(those are the stores that I checked)
& buy a counter top ironing board cover with a silicone coating that would last more than 5 minutes in my sewing room…
I finally decided to buy some silicone coated fabric & make my own.
I found that at JoAnn’s thankfully.
So, yesterday I recovered my ironing board.
See? Shiny & new!
I also have a spare since the fabric is wide enough to get two from a yard.
While I was at it, I did another housekeeping task & replaced my rotary cutter blade.
Then I set to cutting these beautiful new fabrics from my friends at Moda.
This is actually a couple of collections,
Mille Coulores by 3 sisters &
Alice’s Scrap Bag by Barbara Brackman.
I’m working on a new sampler pattern with my Tiny & Mini Dresden plates.
I did a bit of sewing & made this pretty pile yesterday.
Then I did some trimming & pressing & made these pretty stacks.
Then more sewing & pressing & made these.
I’m in love… The beginning of a pretty tiny garden.
Did you do any laboring in your sewing room today? I hope so!
Just keep sewing!
