Congrats on your first publication Dawn. How exciting. You go girl!!! Love the ironing board cover and the iron caddy, beautiful stitchery, it's fabulous!! I would love to get my hands on that magazine, but not sure where to find it in the USA. Will have to check around.

Congratulations Dawn on your first published pattern - Homespun is a great publication, well done.
My copy arrived in the post today and I have been longing for a ironing board cover for my half sized board that lives next to my sewing machine, so loving the instructions that I can adapted to suit. So now all I have to do is get sewing, so I have a fancy board and special iron caddy to show off at patchwork retreat.
Happy quilting, Sue.
