In the middle of adding the borders to my Spring Fling quilt, the angels came calling for my iron. It has gone to 'iron heaven'. I knew that things weren't good when I had it on the 'cotton' setting, and the base plate was cool enough to touch.
Marty has had a play with it and maybe fixed it, but we're thinking that for the sake of the cost of a new iron, we shouldn't risk burning the house down.
I shall persevere with the borders tonight, but I'll have to leave the pinning for tomorrow. The double wide back I purchased today is very wrinkly and will be a good initiation for the new iron. I'll get a new board cover at the same time - I've ummmm ... scorched the old one, and it has really seen better days.
Interesting news on the weather front - we're expecting a cool change on Wednesday next week. It will be a balmy 31c (88f). From tomorrow until Tuesday we're expecting temperatures between 38c and 40c (100f and 104f). We've already had 10 of these hot days in a row - this is really strange for March. I see lots of indoor stitching time in my future ... Be cool!
