A real conversation:
Rodney brings in his ironing board to do some ironing
Kate-"oh Rodney, i'm so jealous of your ironing board"
Rodney-"don't you have one?"
Kate-"yes... but yours is soooooo big!"
Since I became a quilter I have had a few different ironing boards.
The small green one was given to me by a friend. I was still in residence in first year and did not have one.
When Thom and I got married we upgraded to a bigger ikea one. Rather flimsy and not very big.
Then this year for my birthday, my lovely husband bought me a real true ironing board.
A few people were worried that my husband was going to be in trouble for getting me such a domestic item for my birthday. Truly it was one of my best presents ever. Every time i take it out to iron, i say and say "this is the best ironing board ever"
to put the size of these ironing baords into perspective here are Charlie and I beside the original ironing board. the 'baby' if you will.
keep in mind that Charlie is a mini weenie.
that is some small ironing board.
