Now, those who know me well know one thing – I hate to iron. Generally, the one time I iron is when I’m traveling on business and my clothes need to be wrinkle free for professional reasons. Don’t worry that I’m wandering around wearing wrinkled clothes – mostly my clothes stay unwrinkled because I hang them up right out of the dryer.
Although I rarely iron at home, I do own an ironing board. I got it when I went to college, so I’ve had it about 12 years. The ironing board is pretty good, but the cover is ugly and useless. Every time I iron, whenever I move the fabric of what I’m working on, it pulls the cover and creates a bump that wrinkles.
Since I don’t iron a lot, it wasn’t a priority for me to get a new cover. But today, when I was at Michaels (one of my favorite stores on the planet), I saw a very pretty one.
Actually, there were two, a pink one, and a light blue and brown one. Obviously, the light blue and brown one matches better with my living room (where I generally iron). But although I rarely like anything pink, I just really liked the pink one.
So I treated myself.
Maybe I’ll even start ironing more regularly! I just have to upgrade my iron (which I’ve also had about 12 years!).
