Ahhhhh....got in a project.

Here's the fabric. It's from a sheet I found today at the church sale. I confess, a year ago this would not have done a thing for me, but now I'm suddenly in love with it. It makes me so happy. lol I'm so weird.

Here's what I did with it.

Ironing board cover

Thanks to Amy's instructions and encouragement and just her enthusiasm over her own, I have made a new cover for my ironing board. Since I spruced up my laundry room ("room" is a stretch...I have to hold in my stomach to walk into it lol) I realized I could hang the ironing board on the wall. It didn't look too nice there in the old cover though. Now it looks awesome hanging there and makes me smile. :) Thanks Amy!

Now I want to put a few stitches into my needleroll since it's SAL weekend, but unfortunately, I have dishes that I haven't finished yet and it's time to take Tim's mom to the bathroom and put her bed rails up and all that good stuff...and I'll probably flop into bed before I get any stitching done.

It's been an awesome day, though, and I have all day tomorrow to get some stitching done so I'm a happy camper.

Goodnight guys.

I really like the colour and pattern of the fabric. And your ironed cover looks great. I'll hope you will be able to write on my blog.

Cute cover! I just made myself one a few days ago too--this must be some kind of trend!
