Ironing Board............

......a few days ago I was reading a few blogs
and trust me I'm way behind in reading and writing.......
 Madam Samm at Sew I Quilt was posting about making an ironing board
.......well I just have to share a few pictures of mine.......I luv it.  
I bought it in a small town in Ontario many years ago.....

....it is great for pressing quilt blocks....do you like it???????

I went to Quilt Market in Salt Lake City and brought back lots for Cori to look at. She will be adding lots of patterns in her shop and also adding lots of new fabrics.....check out her Coming Soon section at Crazy Quilt Girl Shop. She has some Free Spirit fabrics coming and she is also adding a number of fabric lines from yet another fabric manufacturer.

My pictures from Quilt Market are not good but I'm hoping to post about it next week........I've got family,  visiting from Canada till Monday.....the grandpeeps do keep me busy......DGD1 has a dance competition here in Michigan.......3 dances and I can't wait to see her dance tomorrow morning and again on Sunday.

......and next weekend DSister and DBIL are coming for a visit......planning on doing some overdue sewing.  Have a great weekend everyone and I'm hoping to get to posting a little more regular soon.

Nice! I learned to iron on one almost like that one. My mom let me iron hankies, then pillowcases. I especially like the painted doors. Have fun with your Family!!!

Hi Pauline,

Now that is the best ironing board "house" I have ever seen.

Almost makes ironing fun?

Happy Weekend & hugs.

That has to be the *best* ironing board ever. I could even be tempted to iron stuff that isn't related to patchwork with ne of them, LOL

Oh I sooo wish I had one of those, like you said perfect for blocks (which is all I iron, who irons clothes)!!!! Love the front, when put it away looks like a wall hanging!! Enjoy your fanily! Good luck to your granddaughter!

That's a pretty cool ironing board. I really like that when it's closed, you can't tell it's an ironing board.

Madame Samm said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I want one of those...Marlene, this sew reminds me of my Nanny, her ironing board was in the wall, like a pantry. She used to set up a little stool for me sew I could iron with her. I had a wee one, ( kids one) and I would imitate her....Such fond memories...I still love ironing...and with one like this, I would do more.... lol ( and nice to see you back)

Isn't that ironing board just the cutest thing ever?? Decorative yet useful all at the same time. I do NOT like ironing clothes but I like ironing my blocks. They look so neat & crisp after starch & ironing.
