New-Used Ironing Board


Late this summer I bought a wooden ironing board at a garage sale.  It's longer and wider than my standard one.  My husband thought that I was crazy being excited over an iron board and I told him that it's an important tool that makes a job a little easier when it's more stable and a little bit larger..
 

 
Our life is always changing--sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad.
Sometimes you have to take time and go for an afternoon walk.
We are still in the middle of harvest.  Our combine blew a head gasket last week and we just brought it home from the mechanic today.  He didn't have a bill made out, but I am sure it will not be a cheap fix.  I guess machines never breakdown unless you use them.  Hopefully, we will finish harvesting soon!
 

Happy Quilting!

I think your new/old ironing board is a thing of beauty. Longer and wider sounds wonderful when you're pressing yards of fabric. Sorry about the repairs, may your mechanic be merciful.

I am sure that it will not be a cheap fix, but I hope you will now be able to finish the harvest with it.

I love the old ironing boards. They are sturdy!!!

Great ironing board. They can be very expensive. I have never seen such a nice timber one before. I hope the rest of your harvest is uneventful.
