WOYWW (& Something I HATE!!)

Hi everyone,
Not long now until the WOYWW (PiF), I am all ready for that!!
Go see Julia at : http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ to join in!

I am being honest- my workdesk for the past 24 hours has been this!!!!!!!!



eughhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE Ironing!

- probably because I always leave it until it get's to this ridiculous state!

Whilst crafting so happily over the long weekend as all my lot seemed quite happy doing their own thing. I bwgan to get the "pangs of guilt", 2 or 3 times per day as I heard cries of "Mummy, where are all my clothes?" and "Mummy, I have no knicker's to wear!!!!!!!."
Enough's, enough's I thought - I have to tackle this - and with GREAT resentment I got that iro***g board out! All the while thinking of what I COULD be creating!!!
Anyway, - ooooohhhh - what's that I see, LOOOOK! What's also on that horrible pile OF IRONING, Could it have been placed there deliberately!!!!!!!!!




It's Issue 3 of Simply Homemade Magazine. and I am in it (only in the "Your Letter's page" but my "make" WAS featured/published!) I am wondering if I could be cheeky enough to post on my tool bar/side bar - "I was featured / Published in "Simply Homemade Mag!" What do you think ? !!!!!!!!!!!!!

You iron knickers?! Well I know they feel nice, but life is too short. Hope your pile of ironing has gone down so you can play on your desk.

You are right...we are twins! Tho' I think I am the "first born", my teenage girls are granddaughters and I get to send them home when I'm tired of them or they want money! Well, I think I am going to put my magazine experience on my side bar....what the heck, the editors of those magazines made a choice to publish our pictures and I'm pretty sure they get more than one a month to choose from, so it was a choice! You didn't happen to buy a new sweater yesterday, too, did you? If you did...then I know FOR SURE we are twins.

DanielleP said...

Yes, post your mention in the magazine! I hate ironing too, and put it off so long the kids sometimes outgrow the clothes! LOL, but true!

DottyA Cards & Things said...

YES put it on your side bar... it's not being cheeky, it's being
proud of yourself... and you should be!!!!

And YUCK to the ironing stuff... in fact double YUCK, YUCK!

okienurse said...

OMG! don't remind me of the stack I have sitting waiting to be done. I think I will have to hire it out if it is going to be done. I keep wearing the same old wash and wear to keep from ironing! Thanks for sharing. Vickie aka okienurse #35

I have found that if you ignore the ironing long enough that 13 year old son will work out how to iron his formal uniforms that missed the ironing lady drop-off!
Anyways once it is done you can create again. (But I have to agree I don't like ironing at all)
Happy WOYWW

go for it, if your names in print don't waste the oportunity to crow a little.

Sam said...

I think most of us HATE ironing but I usually do mine in small doses BEFORE I start crafting so that my time is earned. I most certainly do not iron knickers or socks for that matter!!!
Hope you get to see your crafting desk pretty soon!!!

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Of course! put it on your sidebar! So while you're ironing you can think of that and cheer up :^) I hate ironing too. Thank God I don't have to do it! Patsy from

Sherry Edwards said...

I'm also guilty of letting the ironing pile up - and it's here with me in my craft room in the corner - always taunting me and making me feel guilty - LOL.

Congratulations on being published - I was looking for that issue only yesterday, but it wasn't in Sainsburys - I'll have to look around - would love to see your article. YES, YES, of course you need to put it in your sidebar - it isn't everyday you get published is it! I would, definitely - be proud, you deserve to be xx

Di said...

Do put it in your sidebar Rebecca - well done you! I like ironing - odd isn't it :( Shopping was good although having a man along in Ikea isn't such a good thing - and no craft goodies bought either. Thanks for calling by laready, Di x

Linda w said...

I add my vote to your putting it in your toolbar. Well done on being featured. Well done if you got the dratted ironing out of the way...however you decide to do that lol. Momo sent me and I'm your follower. Hope you'll pop by and see me too. Hugs lin

The Crafty Elf said...

You go for it girlfriend. You've earned the bragging rights!!!!! Congratulations.

Angie said...

About 35 years ago I worked out that ironing takes up too much precious time so I only iron what HAS to be ironed sorting out the clothes before they are hung up by tugging and folding cleverly, those that no one sees or those that will crumple within minutes of putting on....and towels should NOT be ironed anyway...hey presto a very small pile remains lol

KanataNewf said...

Congrats on your feature! And I'm guilty of letting my ironing pile up as well! You are not alone!
Thanks for already visiting my post!

Happy WOYWW!

I never iron. My boy does. He is crazy about ironing. Before he showed up I only bought non-iron clothes, but I'm slowly venturing out.

You need to put that in your sidebar, girl! Look at you! Woot!!!

Mrs A. said...

I hate ironng too. I hang it up in the garage and forget about it till hubby moans about how long it has been there for. Just cleared a rail yesterday yuk. Hugd Mrs A.

Carola Bartz said...

Of course you put it on your sidebar!
And stop ironing! Since I've moved to the States I haven't ironed any more - no one seems to do that here as far as I can tell. It is so liberating! (As you can see, I am NOT a good German Hausfrau!
