Cover that up!

No, this isn't a dirty post. Well, not in the way you think. When we packed up our stuff in Beijing, I finally noticed how very ratty our ironing board looked. It was so dirty and torn that the ayi had been ironing on top of a towel for months. Oops. So, now that we are in Taipei and without an ayi (doing our own ironing - yikes!), I had to do something about that cover.

The fabric is a piece that I bought in a remnant pile at a great fabric store in Chicago. It was ridiculously cheap, and I loved it so. Still do, in fact, and I have loads left.

I still haven't quite gotten the hang of making these covers yet, but this one is functional and not at all ratty - all good things.

No ayi?! Really? Our miad comes 12 hours a week and it basically the same as throwing $200 out the window. 3 months and she still has not cleaned our shower - I have, but she has not. David let little traps to see if she was actually doing it really badly...I never in a zillion years thought I would miss Shunyi - but I do!
