HOT! HOT! HOT!
Yesterday my iron of 5 years started to make sounds like my Rice Krispies ... snap, crackle and pop and it was gone. It's has been a good iron and survived numerous falls off my ironing board. I told my husband John that I needed to go out and buy a new one.
He suggested that I just take my small iron collection and put them on the sidewalk. It registered 113 degrees on our outside thermometer when he said that. I think I would need a oven mitt to remove them. When I look at these irons I just think how spoiled I am compared to the women that had to use these. Amazing!
I now have bought a new iron for $19.00. Since I do mostly fusible web I can't be without one. Nothing fancy for me I am too hard on them to buy anything expensive.
Today we have a cool front coming through. It is only supposed to be 92 degrees! I say stay inside and sew, sew sew!!!!
