I have several irons. Last year around Christmas I bought a Rowenta Professional iron on sale at JoAnn's. My friend had one that got nice and hot and really steamed when ironing fabrics. I haven't used it much, four times at the most, and when I did I took care to empty out the water after I used it. I normally just used it to iron fabric, not during my normal piecing. I plugged it in the other day and the stupid thing hardly heats up at all. I plan to continue buying the less expensive Black and Decker irons and use my spray bottle of water. As long as you don't put water in them, they seem to hang on for longer.
I can not WAIT until Wednesday. I'm about to go mad with my phone ringing off the hook with stupid political calls. If you don't at least pick up the phone and hang it up, then voice mail is filled up and you are forced to listen to them.
I already know who and what I am voting against. It was so thoughtful of them to leave their moronic political phone calls off the National Do-not-call list. I was even watching hulu the other evening and was assaulted with ads for my states governor's race, which would have irritated me even if it had been for the guy I'm voting for.
Got a lot of yard work done today. I got some bad shrimp on Friday night, or I had a bug, and I felt under the weather on Saturday. I got up early today and got a lot done. Ready for winter, the lawnmower is put away and the snow blower is ready to go.
I have finished 3 shawls. If I ever find a space to block them, I will post photos. Hope you have a good evening!!
