After posting about the rotary mat tip I happened to glance across my cutting table and for the first time noticed how horrid my little ironing board looked. I think it must have been all the cleaning I've been doing in my room that suddenly showed it up. Now I would NEVER normally post a photo like this but in the hope that it will inspire others to keep their spaces clean and tidy I'll make an exception this time. LOLL
Be warned it's horrid.
I told you so. This really is disgusting. I think I have stuck interfacing on it and burnt several items by the looks of it. I keep this board on my table for easy access when sewing quilt blocks. All it is is a piece of pine wood covered in batting which you can see in the photo below.
I found a piece of fabric that would be fine for now. I don't want any patterns on it so I can see the blocks I'm ironing and also I plan to change my curtains at some point so want to keep it plain for now.
So after stapling down my new fabric.
I now have a nice new, clean ironing board that I am happy to show you.
I suppose most of you will have heard the saying that 'Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness' well before I started cleaning my sewing room a couple of days ago I was knocking on the devils door but today I am finally flying with the angles. LOLLL Problem is now I don't want to do any sewing and mess it up again. LOLL
