The Death of the Ironing Board Cover

Well, yesterday turned out to be a double-bust for sewing. I had to go back home to Chicagoland for my annual appointment with my OB and then I stayed for dinner at my sister’s. by the time I got home, I was toast and everyone else was toast. I had gotten up at 5 yesterday morning to make sure I worked enough yesterday before leaving before the doctor’s. thus leading to the extreme tiredness.

Then late last night, Ted reported that a soft drink from a fast food place had exploded on the ironing board. I had left my drink from Sunday’s lunch on the ironing board and the cup gave way and it leaked all over my very scorched ironing board cover. So I just rolled it up and tossed it out. Ted thought for sure the world had ended and it leaked through the pad, etc.

So now I can’t sew until I get a new pad. I’m scheduled for a Target run Friday night, so I guess things will wait until then. Or maybe I’ll just a use for a few days. But tonight contains swimming lessons for both me and DD, and then we need to pick up our farmer produce, so there went tonight!

Just before I read your blog I read instructions on how to make a new ironing board cover on Oodles of Noodles - http://oodlesofnoodles-lori.blogspot.com/2008/06/ironing-board-cover.html

Hope it helps.
