My Iron Broke! Oh NO! How can I finish my current quilt project?
Go buy a new one, that’s how. Easier said then done.
I wanted an iron “just like the one that broke”.
I went (via car and across Hot pavement) to Target, Boscov, JCPenny, Walmart and Lowes.
None had “my” iron; the Panasonic with telfon coated bottom and retractable cord, and turns off automatically.
There were plenty of Rowenta’s, a few SunBeams, and some off the wall brand names, but no Panasonic’s.
I returned home empty handed and decided to order one online. (Yes, the exact one can be found in several online store)
BUT, that means I must WAIT 7 to 10 days for it’s arrival!
Waiting is NOT good for me when I’m in the “design and make” phrase.
AND, I’ve also decided that my household should try to be a little GREENER!
So after close examination of my “broken” iron, I decided it needed a Washer.
There has GOT be be a washer in this house, Somewhere!
AND, lo and behold, I fixed IT!
See the washer at the front point?
Yes, that took care of my “Broken” Iron.
GOOD AS NEW!!!!!!
I proudly showed my efforts to my “Can fix anything Husband”, and I must give him credit by telling me that I did Good!
But in the same breathe he added that now I can buy a new one to have on hand, because this one will most likely break AGAIN,
and “You’ll Be Sorrrrrrrrrr-eeeeee”
I reminded him of our “going green” efforts, and he dropped the subject.
Sure hope this iron hangs in there for another few months, so I can gloat about it over and over!
