It broke off my iron a while ago. I was able to put it back on to turn the iron on and off, but last week, it wouldn't stay on.
Looks kinda naked without it!
I had to unplug the iron to make it turn all the way off. I could still adjust the temp without the dial, but I thought, hey, I don't need an expensive one, so I'll go get a new one! The hubby spends countless $$ on new fishing lures, so why not?
Please ignore the leopard print wallpaper border. That is NOT how I want my sewing room to look, but the effort and money involved in changing it are just not going to happen any time soon. At least I have my own room for sewing.
So a whopping $6.97 and trip to Wal-Mart later, I have this new baby. It's lightweight and has a setting dial and a place for water to make steam...what more could a gal want?
Spoke too soon. What a gal could want is an iron that you DON'T have to unplug to make that little red light go off. Isn't the light supposed to remind you that it's ON?
So the plan is to donate it to my mom for her quilt retreats. They burn through irons like noone's business...
I'll use the old one a while longer. Maybe find a good sale.
This is what I get for not really looking over the irons and just buying the cheapest one I find. But really, is a $100, 20-pound iron like the one my mom has for quilting any better? It hurts my arm to use it, so, in my humble opinion, NO!
