A New Start
We went to the opening of Annie's Sewing Center this morning and I bought a new ironing board They had balloons with discount coupons inside and when I popped one I got 15% off. This is the first time I have ever owned a good quality ironing board and what a luxury! It is very heavy so it doesn't wobble. It's much wider than my old one and much better padded. It also has a place to put the iron so I don't have to reach over to my sewing table. I should have bought one ages ago.
Lately I have been sewing four patches together in my spare time and now I am starting to assemble them. I love the way the pattern starts to appear once you have four blocks up on the design wall. So far I have pieced 20 of the 48 I need.
