My BIG find was this iron...
I broke my small applique iron. :o(( It was a small, modern, light weight iron that I bought when I was down south. I loved the small size and the pointed nose but it was so light I had to lean my whole body into it and eventually the handle cracked! When I picked up this one I KNEW we had a match made in heaven. It's small, with a pointy nose and it weighs a ton...well maybe not a ton but compared to the last one, this is a bruiser!
She is clean too...look at the plate...no pits, scratches, rust...or ANYTHING! The cord is also pristine!
And the price was right! Come to Mama! I now have a new applique iron! I use the Starch Method for turning under the edges of the applique pieces, so I don't want steam...I just want small, pointy nose and weight...oh and as a bonus, she is HOT stuff! That's also a good thing!:o)
My other 'Find' from this summer's Garage Saling was this Tool Kit...it was NEW...(still had the tags hanging) and was spotless inside...PERFECT for taking to retreats, clubhouse, Heritage, RV...where ever I go! It also has a handy handle AND a shoulder strap!
Yup...lots of room...lots of pockets...
And plenty of space for my project and fabric!
"START THE CAR!! START THE CAR!!"
It's a gorgeous day here on our beautiful island so that means YARD WORK today! Ugh! It's a dirty job but someone's got to do it...it's time to get the garden ready for winter. While raking and clipping, I will be dreaming of future quilts and which UFO to attack next! What about you...is your yard ready for winter? Or are you heading for your sewing room...to put in a few hours of sweat and toil...yup it's a rough life!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Stitching/Gardening...or whatever you're doing this fine day!! ENJOY!
