I didn’t finish my folding last night so finished folding these this morning, now I have to find somewhere to stash them.
I bought myself a new ironing board cover from here, the old one (same brand) was bought in 1995 so it has lasted a long time, in fact it is still usable, just faded, a few scorch marks and a bit sticky from spray starch so after I have washed it I will keep it as a spare. My ironing board is the one I bought when I first went flatting while I was in the RNZAF, it’s 31 years old and still going strong.
As I have a nice, new cover I thought I should clean the iron as well, I used a damp cloth which I dipped in white vinegar and then dipped in bicarbonate of soda, just rubbed it over the cold iron and all the brown gunk came off, I then wiped it well with a damp cloth and made sure there was no bicarbonate of soda left in the steam holes, it worked really well.
I finished this block off for the Civil War Quilts BOW, 3 more blocks to make and I will have caught up and then I can put some effort into Dear Jane.
