A quick fix.

All quilting has been put on hold while my husband and I completely rearrange our house. This is not fun, but the major bonus is that now I’ll have my very own sewing room! And it’s a much sunnier room than I was previously sewing in. I’ll post photos once I’m feeling like it’s a bit more put together…

Meanwhile, I needed a sewing fix! I use an ironing board that folds up and down from a door, and I discovered that the new door it was on doesn’t stay put, making for an unacceptably wiggly ironing board. I instantly knew what the solution was!

Elizabeth at Oh, Fransson!’s great door stop tutorial! It’s a fun and quick project and works perfectly, as demonstrated by one of my cats:

    I have the same ironing board, but more often than not I use the June Taylor Cut-n-press.
    Cute kitty – you can tell that the cat is sleeping real good because the head is upside down… That kitty is not worried about a thing!

    Your cat is too funny. I like the colors of your doorstop.

    Cute. I’ll have to go find that to solve the problem of the door that slams shut when I open the window. I probably won’t need it until next summer though. Winter is upon us over here.

    I’m so glad the tutorial worked out for you! It appears we share the same problem with overly helpful cats.
