Yesterday I went to M & L yardage to buy some flannel for a project I am working on for my new grand-daughters and I came home with flannel AND all this cute fabric to make these Hostess Aprons. So instead of working on the project I was supposed to get started on, I made these 7 aprons for the Etsy shop. Makes total sense, right?
And now on the the iron that changed my life....CHANGED MY LIFE PEOPLE! So about a year ago I convinced the hubby that I NEEDED a Rowenta iron. How could I continue my life as I know it without one? So my darling hubby consented and I paid way more than anyone should for an iron and was the proud owner of my very first Rowenta. Fast forward to February and my prized iron leaks and it decides when and if it will work at all! Of course I had to start my search for the perfect replacement. I read quilter's blogs and online reviews and decided that I NEEDED the Oliso TG1600 (a bargin at $169.00) I used my sweetest voice and asked the hubby if I could have it. And of course, he said "yes". Did I mention that it comes in the cutest sunny yellow color? Anyhoo, I must have lost my mind temporarily because things have been slow at my husband's work and slow = less money. And on top of that, the day I was planning to buy my beautiful sunny yellow Oliso he came home early from work because things were slow. Needless to say, I didn't order the yellow iron. I went back to Amazon and started reading reviews on their top selling irons and it turns out there were quite a few ex-Rowenta owners singing the praises of this T-fal Ultraglide. For $38 bucks and free shipping, I figured I'd give it a shot. Guess what? IT ROCKS!!! I've never had an iron that actually makes ironing fun! I love this iron! Even the steam sounds like applause! It heats up lightning fast, gets super hot, had tons of steam, glides over wrinkles and the back of the iron is designed so that it's very stable on the ironing board so you don't have the fear of it tipping over. And did you notice that it's RED? (it also comes in blue...but who wants that?)
