My ironing board is part of my decor. I never ever take it down (well possibly for non-quilting company) and it is the first thing I see when I walk into my condo. It serves as a catch all when my hands are full coming in the door and is very versatile. You can see it's stained. But I don't care about the stains unless they are transferring to my fabric. The cover is one those that you buy at a quilt/sewing expo. Some smooth talking salesman talked me into it. It's actually very nice for clothing, but too slippery for small block parts and pieces. That's when my handy dandy cut n' press comes to the rescue! So... I've shown you mine, now show us yours!! Thanks Libby, confession is good for the soul ;-o

Wait, that's not all I've accomplished! I also finished the Piece & Plenty BOM #3. This block is designed by Brannock & Patek and is primitive. I love primitive, but I didn't realize how difficult it would be for me to DO primitive. I thought I needed more guidance, but now that I'm done, I think it was a good experience. Now I know I can do it!
So, have you signed up for the new Designer Mystery BOM that Kimberly has going over at the Fatquarter shop? I couldn't resist. They go fast and I know I'd be heartbroken if I missed out. Good thing Vicky catches these, cause I would have missed it for sure.
I'm moving on to some new things, I've started another swap that I need to make 60 socks for. The pattern is called Lost Socks, it's adorable and easy so it should be fun. I guess I'm just one of those gals that need at least 3 0r 4 balls in the air. I can't settle down to one project. That would just be too boring!
Have fun stitchin!

The Rules: 1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you. 2. Post THE RULES on your blog. 3. Post 7 weird or random facts about yourself on your blog. 4. Tag 7 people and link to them. 5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged. Here we go.... 1. If you give me a plate of food, I will eat it all. But only one item at a time and I save what I like best for last.
2. I've lived in Houma, Louisianna and Katy, Texas for short periods of time, 20 years ago. Other than that I've only lived in the San Francisco Bay Area.
