The angry iron!
It was a dark and stormy night......... Well, not really, but it was a little sinister in the sewing room today. Apparently when I was throwing around all the gratitude the other day, I may have hurt a certain small appliance's feelings. Ya know, I always sing the praises of my iron! Great steam, nice professional tip. All in all, great and consistent performance. Until today, Sunday evening, just when Black Friday weekend ends!! All weekend long, Jo-Ann had irons on sale. But tonight at 9pm, my beloved iron WENT NUTS. Heating out of control, red light flashing, not responding to my adjustments, and then..... burning my beautiful ironing board cover!!! The nerve! So, I unplugged it. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow. I can't live without an iron, I have tons of holiday sewing to do, and I am NOT in the mood to go BUY one. I'll keep you posted.
