My creative space this week is filled with the ironing board which has now been up three weeks. Just in case I have to use it (such as ironing something casual to wear yesterday that wasn’t jim jams) we left it up.
When I got this ironing board I raved over it. The ironing surface is huge! All that space for all that crafting stuff. You can also plug the iron into the board so you can stand miles (well you know what I mean) from the socket.
Well I should say when I got the first one I raved over it. That one then slid down the wall and sheared off at one of the welds, our next door neighbour who is very handy welded it for me but it did it again and I thought that the lean that one was exhibiting was due to this. Obviously not. B took that one back and swapped it.
This ironing board has obviously decided to make ironing an extreme sport, now I seem to remember once seeing a news article about extreme ironers jumping off cliffs or something like that, but it’s not something you expect to encounter in your sewing room.
So since it is now blatantly obvious how I managed to burn myself whilst hurriedly ironing a pair of pants for my impromptu holiday – I took my eye off the iron and it slide off the edge and into my leg.
B has been informed that I would like a new one, not the same brand and not as big – I decided with ironing boards size isn’t everything!
