Press on...

I apologise for this photograph, it is not meant to shock or upset, but show how it is in reality...


This is my mini-ironing board cover, the state it was in before this weekend, the fully-fledged horror of the conditions I was pressing my small pieces on.  It has looked like this for a long time.

I may have pressed your Bee blocks on this.  Sorry.

But thanks to a kick up the butt by one of the 7 year olds, and to be honest, 15 minutes from start to finish, now I have a brand spanking new board cover that I am again proud to press on...


It's not all glamourous this stitching business, but it just got a little more presentable round here!

  17. When I saw the photo I thought it was something else unmentionable! Sorry my ironing board is so like this, the before photo that is. I never thought the cup of coffee would stain my board like that.

  19. That's a very cute cover you have now. My mini board's metalwork got a bit warped so I chucked it and bought a new one from Ikea. For £6 it wasn't worth the effort or the fabric to me because I'm only going to burn holes in it again.
