Not so pretty...

Today I finally got round to replacing this...


I realise that this is possibly the most gross bit of fabric to grace my little bit of the interweb, and I apologise. 

Do you hang onto things well past their 'use by' date, when really the emotional attachment is quite silly; have you ever taken at look something like this revolting, holey, burnt and stained ironing board cover and realised that your grandma would probably be more disgusted than touched that you hadn't updated your nearly 8 year old wedding present just because she gave you an M&S voucher on your big day!?

I am going to try and salvage some of the cute, unsoiled prints from the edges and use them in a future project, but the rest is destined for the bin!

So now, instead of having to protect all my stitchery, blocks and clothing from the manky old board, I will be protecting the board from them!  Ta da...


I am not under the misguided impression this will make me enjoy ironing, but hopefully it won't be quite so depressing!

  4. aww old cover was a sweet print :-) New one looks nice though, but I've tried that trick myself... It doesnt work. Ironing still sucks, it just smells nicer!

  7. Love the new board- can't say the same about ironing. Perhaps I need a new cover on mine as well. Just really like the word manky. Must be a brit thing b/c that is a new one for me. :)

  9. Cute! I actually love ironing... mostly because I don't iron my clothes. Only quilting stuffs.

  10. Glad to see you're recycling. But yours doesn't look half as bad as mine! Been meaning to get another IBC for ages, after my demon iron burnt a hole clean through the last one! Jxo
