I love to use Pinterest as my virtual bulletin board. As you might guess many of my pins are sewing related. Click here to see what fun stuff I've found and pinned to different sewing boards.

Oh, Put a Sock in It! (Shirt, B5526)

I'm risking using a dated expression here.  

Does anybody still say, "Oh put a sock in it!"?  It used to be a way to say "Shut up" and it wasn't actually something a nice ladylike person would say. But it usually got a laugh.

I don't yet own a pressing ham. In sewing class at Cañada Community College (where I do quite a bit of pressing with hams),  I found out that I can substitute a rolled up ball of socks to add that 3-D effect to a garment, that comes in so very handy when pressing parts of it that aren't going to be hanging flat on my body.

So if you're wondering where all the clean socks went in my house, just check the ironing board.
