Sunday Stash #60 – Wrinkle-Free
If you’re looking to link up to Sunday Stash, you need to head right on over to Sarah’s place at Sarah Quilts. She’s doing guest-hosting duties this week, including a grand giveaway, and fashionably-late me is still figuring out what to wear. The good news is that my clothes will be wrinkle-free!
After nearly burnin’ this place down last Sunday with my iron, Mr. Sparkles took me shopping for some new gear. I’m the first to admit I am hesitant to change, and probably would have tried to re-assemble the iron ashes had he not dragged me out the door. After many friends recommended Oslio or Philips brands, I had a lot to think about.
I needed to buy my iron on Sunday so that Mr. Sparkles could have crisp white shirts for work come Monday. Since I would have had to mail order the Oslio, that got rejected. That left the Philips Azur GC4855. I found it “on sale” for $80 at a local homewares store, Harvey Norman. It was regularly priced at $130, so it was seemingly a good buy. (Does anyone else think they mark things up, just so they can mark them down!?) On our way home Mr. Sparkles wanted to stop at Target to look around at ironing boards. Well, heavens to Betsi, would you believe they were on sale, too!? The big, giant, silver one was 20% off at $63! Well, that, of course, had to come home with us. So thank you Mr. Sparkles for fulfilling my ironing dreams.
I can also report that the iron is so far, so good. So much so, that I already burned my finger. Nope, not from the iron. Nuh uh. I burned it finger-pressing the fabric after I had ironed it! Have you ever? Confirming it gets hot, hot, hot, so I’d say it is working! Y’all will be the first to know if any shenanigans pop up!
See you at Sarah Quilts! (Who is in the US, so the link-up will be available a little later than usual).
Oh, and Happy Australia Day!
