Burnt Smell

All I have to say is: I woke up this morning to a funny, sad, burnt smell. This smell was oddly familiar and lingered around the house until I opened the window. As you can see, this last burn (last, large brown spot from the bottom of the board!) was not the first nor will not be the last, if history repeats itself. This little scenario has something to do with a husband who leaves the iron face down while hurry off to work. Don'tcha think it it time for a new ironing board?

I agree, it is also time for a new quilt project: A twin size quilt for my four year old's new bed!! I am thinking something with doggies!

Hey, I need you email to invite you to my blog! You will have to come over one day and see Aaron's new quilt my mother in law made. It's cute!

Looks like it's time for new board with a new cover! Ever thought about getting one of those irons that switch automatically off if left unattended... :-)

Ya I get that here at my House but not the husband(JENNY)LOL!!! I also have a new burn mark i need someone to make one of those big mor squared off toppers for my board, much easier to iron quilt tops. I love the Idea of the doggy quilt. Lets go shopping for fabric!! I do have a couple of pieces left from the dog quilt i made for that lady if i don't end up using them all you are welcome to them if they will work for you.SORRY SO LONG.

I had to show your ironing board to everyone. Mine would look similar if it was every used. =)

Mine would look like that, if we ever used the iron, but I thought the dry cleaners were for ironing? Ha ha! One day, when G was working at Nordstrom I planned a whole day of ironing and it took hours upon hours, and I've been ruined ever since. Since then, I leave that task to someone else. Although I do love the feel and look of fresh pressed clothes - sans the jeans (remember that!)

I've been there!!! We were actually in a hotel this weekend and I dropped the iron on the floor. The iron melted the carpet as soon as it hit. Oopps.

Oohh!! American Quilting has an adorable doggie applique quilt. It's 30's prints but you could adapt it to something else....

The burnt ironing board smells reminiscent of over-toasted graham crackers to me. Odd.
