This rickety old shelf in the kitchen is near my most favourite place to iron. Yes I have favourite places to iron - lol!
Anyways, here I can visit the opera (Classic FM radio), travel the world and learn new things (Radio 4), have a cup of tea with Miss Read in Fairacre or simply watch the birds on the patio - and get my ironing done at the same time!
I try also to make any repairs at the ironing board - a slipped hem or a button gets sorted there and then, otherwise I forget.
So I decided to put together a mini repair kit of the stuff I usually need....
This teeny, tiny tin has saved me many a trip to my main sewing box upstairs.
The job gets done more quickly and then I can go play crocheting or knitting!
