Yep that's right, my very own special Elf made me a Big Board for Christmas!! I guess he took the bait .....
.... this summer when my son ironed a shirt it came complete with all my loose threads, (I had just finished some un-sewing). After picking them all off he said... 'Hey Mom you really need your own iron board.. so we can keep this one upstairs and it isn't always covered with your quilting stuff.' So I very simply replied... 'You know that's a good idea and they even have large boards specifically for quilters.... sounds like a great Christmas present!'
Well he stored that bit of information in his head and while combing the internet for a large ironing board he found instructions to make one! I should have known it.... he has always had a love of making things, so that is exactly what he did!!! He also gave me an IOU for the cover. He ordered the material, but it didn't come in before Christmas.
As soon as I get the cover I will post a picture.... but for now, I am happy that my son who is studying Structural Engineering in college, used some of his talent for ME... woohooo!
Thank you baby!
