OMG - May & June ........ not quite there

Well, I did get to do some sewing this last two months ............ not as much as I would have liked, but at least I got a few things off my sewing list done!

My goal for May was to complete Lesson 4 of FWQR - got some blocks done, but did not complete the lesson.


During May, I also completed the Bee Block for Do Good Stitches - Single Wedding Ring block in pink - a big 13" block!

Pink wedding ring



Now into the June Bee Blocks for Do Good Stitches - scrappy strips - 8" x 11"

Scrappy Strips - Block #1


Scrappy Strips - Block #2

I need a new iron .......... do you have any suggestions?

A year ago, I posted on Facebook that my iron had bit the dust ............... well, the replacement iron didn't last long either - I recently took that one back and got a refund! the new one sprung a leak in a different area - not a good thing to mix electricity with water :(

So, I am calling on all of my quilting friends to give me their recommendations for a good iron!

I am looking for an iron that can be filled while upright, has steam on/off selection, with automatic shut off (without continuously beeping to let me know it has turned off!) and is light enough to use easily, but still has enough weight to get a good press/seam!  

yeah, I know ............. I don't want much do I?

and just because I believe that each post should have something pretty to look at ........


here is a beautiful Australian Native bird, a Rainbow Lorikeet sitting in the tree in my front yard :)
