It was a quiet, somber, dignified affair.
I would like to thank everyone for their concerns. It has been a difficult time for us...
All kidding aside, I did try to save the old iron. I just could not trust it again. I hold myself to blame for some of that.
I have betrothed myself to this new one. I would not ordinarily buy such a fancy one, but Macy's was having a great sale. I've tattooed the date on her just to see how long our relationship will last.
As you can see, I've put her on a pedestal and intend to treat her with respect and kindness. I also plan to use a tap/distilled mix to help prevent build up. I have also promised to clean it as instructed, at least 2x a month, if not more.
I went to the Mancuso Tri-State Quilt Fest and saw some lovely quilts - report to follow.
In the meantime I have some new reading:
Great photos and inspiration here -
Have a wonderful weekend everyone - and thanks again for tuning in to "As the Iron Steams (and dies)".
