What’s going on in my studio this week? Well, I am getting ready for a guild lecture- I always try to make it fresh and new and bring different quilts each time. SO I have piles of quilts all over the living room, dining room…
And I am sewing away, as usual! The difference is I have a new iron. A while back, the folks at Oliso asked me if I wanted to put an affiliate link on my website for their iron. I had heard about the irons and even tried one briefly (2 quick swipes!) at a quilt show. But not having used one before, I was hesitant. So I decided to try one. And yes, I do love it!
I thought for sure I would hate the part where you don’t pick it up; you just sort of move it over to the side, but I found out 2 things. One, you can turn that feature off. Two, I actually like it! It took me about 15 minutes to get totally on board with the idea and now I love it. The iron is heavier than the cheap little iron that I had been using, but not having to tip it back on the edge every time makes that OK. And it presses beautifully.
Time for me to get back to packing quilts, prepping my lecture and then a little sewing and ironing- I’ve got quilts to make!
p.s. Tomorrow I will be speaking at the Quaking Aspen Quilt Guild in Boulder CO. If you are in the area, I hope to see you there!
