I was saying in the last post, that an ironing board cover was much needed, in my sewing room.
Here's the IKEA fabric I spoke of & it worked out perfectly! Thank you Mitchell! XO
You need to save your old ironing board cover, to use it as a pattern for the new one.
I also used the elastic from the other casing & the 2 Velcro strips, to secure the center area.
And that was handy as it would have been a drive to get those supplies! Oh the joys of living in a village & now the large city. Slowly my sewing stdio is making its way east. lol
What a view I have from this room, a different snset every night! Rexton & Tommy are in this room often, Rexton is watching the robins, pulling the worms out of the ground.
Wrap Around Deck Begins!
I'm so pleased with this area & an extension of interest next to the Anniversary Garden, right in time for our 30th Anniversary on the 4th of July!!
And in June, there is so much mowing, mostly every 6 days to stay on top of it!
Everything else is growing too!
So summery here today!
The area looks so much better after the dandelions & weeds have been mowed down!
I got the diesel tractor stuck down there last Sunday afternoon. It was a freak thing... I ran over a branch limb that flew up under the mower's deck & disengaged the mower from the tractor!!! I could not go forward, nor backwards & I was on the downgrade of the grassy lane. Eek, looking at the water! Those that know me know I'm hydrophobic, I was not having a good day!
I often said that if Murphy's Law had a sister, I would be her!
Thank you Francis for putting it back together as a mowing tractor unit.
And topsoil awaits for the spreading of grass seed. I'll miss you Mitchell, we put in a lot of grass together, a few years back.
There's No Place Like Home!
Baxter & Bridget are in day seven, of their 10 days of complete rest... we're nearly there!!
Have a wonderful week, wherever you are!
Summer has begun! Enjoy!!
