Ironing Board cover and a Bargain (Long Term) WIP

In the spirit of WIP Wednesday, I thought what is a better time to show you my progress on my ironing board cover. It is so far sitting over my current cover, already being used even though I haven't put the elastic on it yet!!


I was in a bit of weird mood the other day, and very very keen to paractise my free motion quilting skills (or lack thereof) So I went a little nuts on the quilting.... which didn't turn out too good... well it looks terrible. But I had fun, and a good laugh showing my Mr. how bad I am at it. But at the end of the day I don't like my 'efforts' at all, so I'm unpicking it and am going to go with some simple meandering lines to finish it up. Nice and safe and something achievable.
Like my quilting gloves??

Onto my next addition, my newest and somewhat potentially long term work in progress. This baby was found at Savers.

As soon as me and the Mr walked past it he told me I had to have it..... and then we saw the price....

and then well, the rest is history ( and then I got a further 20% student discount) $16 later and she's mine.

I've comissioned the Mr. to repair the table and replace the lids/ foldable tables. I also need to get her cleaned up, source a presser foot, and see if she works or not. If not, I'm not too bothered given the price and it would make a great show piece :)

What are you working on?
