Tomorrow I have a date with my sewing group. Our prolific stitcher/member, Neitta is sharing some of her knowledge with us tomorrow, and we were advised to bring along an iron, and small ironing board if possible - to save a line-up at our group ironing station. Feeling a little embarrassed with the state of my iron, I decided this morning was a good time to offer up some TLC to the 'family'. I couldn't resist sharing this photograph with everyone. My husband stated some time ago, after seeing two irons sitting on the board, that perhaps they may surprise us with a new family member one day. Well, it actually has happened..........LOL........ We now have Russell [as in Hobbs], his partner [whose name shall remain a secret], and now we have Junior, after I found a bargain buy at the local hardware not long ago - three small appliances for $20. I know, they probably won't last, but I thought the small iron would be handy for occasions like tomorrow, and to avoid the ever present gunk that can find it's way onto your good iron [where is that red face thingy???]. Anyway, here they are, all lined up and cleaned, well as good as I can get them!! I also could not help but notice on the bottom of the most expensive of the three [Russell] the words - 'return to supplier for repairs'................hmmmmm, I don't think I've ever been given a hearing when asking to have small appliances repaired.
