    Good thing your hubby is out of town, so he won't be getting in your way while you're making your masterpiece. Hahaha. Looking forward to the "before & after" pix.

    I made my *big board* to fit over my ironing board all by myself. It isn't hard at all. You will do a great job!

    I ended up having to get all the Christmas stuff out of the attic and getting it up and the boxes back in the attic, so thats what I ended up doing yesterday (a total of 30 trips up and 30 trip down the attic ladder) so tommorrow I am doing NOTHING but getting my sewing set up enough to get my sewing done, so I will post pics as soon as I get it finished, hopefully by tommorrow evening. I already have the plan and I know where my husbands tools are lol

    K I finally finished my ironing table this morning, My husband will do the trim work and make it look pretty when he gets home, but at least it's functional. I made the top as removable since we also use this room for family gatherings. the finished padded top size is 19 X 44 and I have a ceramic tile at the end for a place to set the iron.

    well I'm getting there, tommorrow I'm building the frame and making my design wall. I converted an old drawer and made a light box today, my husband just needs to cut the plexiglass for me and I need to let the paint dry so I can add the lights.

    the design wall my husband made me, He built a frame then stretched some cheap $1.00 fabric over the frame then covered it in batting and finally a flannel sheet, then he hung it on the wall (isn't he awesome)
