My new ironing board cover...

Now if I can only keep the cats off of it...

They like to give it that special touch of hairball smell.  Wonderful when warmed up! Hopefully the plastic tablecloth I keep on it will stop that now.  Grump.
Looks clean doesn't it?

Ready for quilting.
Here is my first project made on the new cover.  Not a lot of ironing, but it all counts.
