The Little Things
Little things make me happy. I got a new cover for my ironing board today. I have an extra wide ironing board and had a little bit of trouble finding a new cover to fit. I found the right sized one at Bed, Bath and Beyond and picked it up today. It is amazing how big of a difference something so minor makes! I think the whole room looks happier!!!
My old ironing board cover was kind of dingy. No matter how careful I think I am, I end up getting residue of fusible on the cover along with marks from heat setting the fabric crayon drawings from my second graders' artwork. There could have been a singe mark or two on it also.
It was nice to have the new cover to work on today as I went through scraps to get my 1½" pieces for my Postage Stamp Charm Square Quilt. Several needed to be pressed. I barely made a dent in my scrap collection. It will take quite a while to go through all of my scraps to collect pieces for this quilt project but I am enjoying every minute.
Later in the week I'll count them up and let you know how far I've gotten.
