Wow, what a great item to rescue from the trash!


I'm so please that ironing board found you. It's perfect for your porch creations and will be nice and portable indoors when the weather forces you inside.
I love your felt feathers Margie and I'm so excited to hear you'll be part of another show :)

are these the pieces from the previous post that you dyed?
I love old ironing boards - use one myself.


The feathers are lovely. So is that ironing board (score!)

Denise Leavens

Oh, Margie! I had no idea wooden ironing boards even existed! I would love one. So beautiful and the perfect height for crafting on. I love your feather shaped felt pieces. I am really looking forward to seeing this next project. Sending you artistic mojo!


yayyyy feathers!!! i'm so excited to see what they turn into!

Julie Shackson

Those felt feathers looks lovely against the warm tones of the wooden ironing board; nice find!

Lovely World

Great find! I am curious about your feathers. I have been so interested in making natural objects out of fabric and thread. I also love making a pattern and cutting out multiple pieces. I find it so meditative to watch the pieces emerge from the whole cloth. This must be somewhat how sculptors feel as they cut away the clay or wood and watch an object emerge.


love the wooden ironing board. very cool! i love the idea of people leaving the items they don't want anymore outside for others to grab. we don't do that so much here.
those feathers are really beautiful.

Wonderful find, but I'm totally enchanted with those feathers. I can't wait to see!

I love the inspiration "board" and those gorgeous feathers. You will have to come visit and see the National Museum of the American Indian, which I took the kids to on Saturday. So much visual inspiration as to be almost overwhelming.

Maybe the wooden ironing board you rescued is the same one I found at a junk shop after college and then sold before a big cross-country move. Or maybe just its spirit!


I love the colours of the wool felt. Muted, soft and still vibrant. Beautiful feathers.


What an eye you have, Margie !!! And lucky ironing board to resurrect on your porch ! Found things make us always much happier than bought items !
(My children used their little wooden ironing table to play at shops and at doctors and nurses ... and, since our return home last week, as desk to classify our nature collections into jars and to make "Critters".)
These rainbow feathers are divine !
Congrats for your December Show in NYC ! What a promising fall for your creative hands !!!


Oooh! Beautiful feathers! I love them. Can't wait to see what they become.

Jill Wignall

These look great. Always nice to follow someones creative journey. I'm also interested to see what looks like apile of delicate embroideries next to the feathers.

I love your ironing board:) I recently found one much like that at a cool little second hand shop. I'm trying to decide whether or not to paint the legs to match the new cover I made....


The feathers are fantastic, Margie! I also think your new banner is perfect! Great stuff!
