Very nice!

When I was a small child my Mum did all the ironing on the kitchen table with a pile of sheets and blankets to provide the surface.  I can only imagine how my back would scream if I did that! 

However, being able to do the pressing on a table when making quilt block is really useful - a number of us made hard pressing boards for just that purpose recently.  This would be even easier!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

OOh I am tempted by that, not that I am doing much sewing currently  :rolleyes:
A measly 2.5m of stash used so far!

But it's when you're not sewing that you can get everything prepared and ready for when you are sewing!   ;)

Yeah I made a pressing pad myself a few months back and before that I was running out to the kitchen and using the counter with a teatowl on it.  0_0

I've got something similar which I find invaluable for use in the kitchen.

@Acorn I remember the blanket/sheet ironing pad in our kitchen and all the ironing I did on it as a teenager.

Still getting used to this site I put a pic up instead.

The screenshop only showed part of the URL.  The full link is:
https://www.lidl-ni.co.uk/en/p/home-comforts/tabletop-ironing-pad/p37535

@CraftyIrish  Dunno how to do it on a phone, but with the laptop to include a link I open that link in a separate tab.  Highlight and copy the URL (shown in the box at the top of the screen), go back to teh TSP page and past the link, highlight it again and copy (control and C on Windows, Command and C on Mac) then click on the "insert hyperlink" icon (which looks like a ball with a sheet of paper in front of it) and then paste (control and V or Command and V) into the pop-up box.  Make sure you leave the  "http://" highlighted so that when you paste it gets overwritten otherwise it will stay with the copied link and won't direct properly.

For many years my mum did the ironing on the kitchen table using an old blanket covered with a piece of bed sheet. She was good at ironing and never really got used to using a 'proper' ironing board.  But you could always tell if she was the one who had ironed a shirt because it would have a neat crease going all the way down the centre back.

My neighbour still irons on her table in the kitchen.
If you don't have your ironing board up permanently in the kitchen where do you keep most of your stash?  :laughing:

I'm not getting back into how many irons and ironing boards I have at this point but I store my stash in three big plastic lock lid containers.
