In about 6 weeks in NYC, people will be outside at cafe tables, sipping iced lattes and grinning, happy to feel the sun on their toes. We will have just taken the flip flops out of storage, and will wear them, even though it might not quite be warm enough.
Right now, though, we're mostly trudging through 40-degree drizzly weather, on the verge of clobbering everyone with our umbrellas, all passive-aggressive elbows and frowns. It's a tough time of year.
So I needed a win.
I'm happy to report that I used my Leap Day well and finished up a new ironing board cover that I made along with February's sew-along at I have to say.... It was fun and easy, and such a nice thing to do for yourself. My ironing board is a little wider than normal, so I just added a few inches according to the instructions.
Why not pretty-up something you use all the time?
