I just couldn't take using this ironing board cover another minute! You can't say I didn't get the full use out of it before replacing it. Trust me, this was not a result of ironing clothes. At least 95% of it was from pressing little fabric scraps that became quilts.
After: AAAHHH. That is SO much better!
Its amazing how I keep using something that is obviously dirty and ragged, because the damage happened so gradually. Then one day it hits me! For less than $10.00 I can make this thing nice again.
While thinking about this I compared it to my life. What bad habits have I gotten used to because they happened so gradually? Remember the story about the frog being cooked in boiling water? He was put in the water while the water was still cool. The water temperature rose slowly and he didn't notice until it was too late and he was cooked! AACK!
