Working Like DOGS!

Geeze…I wonder where that expression came from?…Certainly not from around here..the only ones NOT working are the mutzos!  Oh they may raise their heads once in awhile as we carry and drag furniture by them…disturbing their morning/afternoon/evening siestas on the couch in the family room…It’s more like~ Ahhh it’s a dog’s life, at least around here!

For the third consecutive night I have gone to bed moaning and groaning…hmmmmmm… let me expand on THAT one…moaning and groaning in sheer agony!!  The old body sure can’t take a little work…not like it use too!

I was hoping to show pictures of a completed sewing room but alas…we have at least ONE more day of dragging and hauling…packing and unpacking, folding and unfolding, sorting and resorting…you get the idea!  It is, after all, a sewing room!  Rome was not built in a day…

But what I can show you is my favourite piece of furniture in the sewing room.  Yup…it’s an ironing board!P1180745

My husband made it for me about eight years ago…yes, I know…other women get diamonds and jewels…I get an IRONING BOARD and I still LOVE it!! It’s perfect for ironing quilt tops and large pieces.  I can change the cover in minutes as the top comes right off…I just wrap the fabric and staple underneath.  The top part of the table stays in place as you place it into the grooves.  And just look at the storage…I will show you the other side tomorrow…(would you believe my battery died!)  Oh and the other good thing about this ironing board is that hubby made it the perfect height for me..and it is on rollers!!  I love that I can roll it anywhere I want to…Yes, my hubby knows the way to a quilter’s heart is not with diamonds and jewels!  haha

Ok…enough about the ironing board…today we have more furniture to move, more fabric to sort, more…of everything!  Oh and what a mess the old sewing room is!!  Where does one start??  Maybe if the mutts got off the couch and helped things would get done just a little bit faster…but we KNOW that’s not going to happen!:o) 

Hey, don’t growl at ME!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

Acho que estou gemendo mais que você,não vejo a hora de ver tudo pronto,aí e aqui.Eu também estou reformando o quarto de costura,a minha bagunça está toda na varanda da frente...um horror.Mas quando penso que depois tudo será organizado e prático,fico menos nervosa.Já estou sem sentar na máquina 23 dias hoje,uffaa!Mas,como tudo tem o lado bom,minhas costuras a mão estão se acabando,o que é muito bom,pois tinha duas gavetas lotadas de bordados e aplicações para terminar.amanhã volto para ver essa maravilha que seu amado fez.Fique bem,beijo.

What a wonderful ironing board! I love it! You are smart to have married a man who will listen to what you want and act on it!

I see the pups are as helpful as Cooper usually is. HA!!! LOL

Love the ironing board - gotta love a man who truly cares about his woman's wants and needs.

Love the ironing board. I really need to make myself something like that! I'm curious as to how it locks in place when you lift the top to change to cover. Can you share pictures of that (when the battery charges! LOL!)?
I'm not into woodwork but I'm thinking I can figure it out. I'm brave! LOL!

Romance has not died! Such a great ironing board is SO much better than diamonds.

Andra Gayle said...

I get great presents like that from my husband too and I love them and use them more than I would diamonds! I do treasure the pearls he bought me though...

Love it. I have that size iron board but I used my old iron board that I purchase in 1965 off to college. My husband made the board to fix it. Made a copy of yours to show him. Love you blog and I know about moving everything out we put in new flooring three years ago. enjoy your room. Sally from Oregon

Oh Paulette how fun - I love to move into a new space - love your ironing board, my hubby put wheels on a table for me [it has leaves that fold down, too] and I LOVE ironing on that thing. So much easier to iron on a large surface. I don't have the storage you do under it, though, lol!

Your Rick is pretty clever and handy with the saw. That's a great ironing board and storage. Can't wait to see the whole room.

Tina said...

Wow! Love that ironing board! Your hubby should sell them.

Lynda said...

Now that's a "real" ironing board. And the storage is great too. Good luck in getting it all moved back in and set up.
