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 :)

Project Uninterrupted - Wonky White Stars - PinkFlimsy

Hi everyone,
I had a virtual sewing get together with my friends at Project Uninterrupted, hosted by Cynthia, of Cynthia's Ark

The first Saturday of each month is set aside for some Uninterrupted sewing time, especially to work on unfinished projects :)  It is held in-store, but also has a 'virtual' element for those that cannot get to the store :)

I consider everything that I have on the go as a UFO, so I guess this next project qualifies!  LOL

I am part of the Australian CHERISH Do Good Stitches charity bee, where a group of quilters make up quilts for various charities around Australia.  January 2016 was my first turn as a quilter, and I nominated 'Wonky White Stars' in Pink/Purple or Blue/Green.  The idea is to make up two lap quilts :)

The CHERISH stitchers were absolutely wonderful in getting all their blocks to me in record time!

Here is my first flimsy, and my first cab off the rank for my Project Uninterrupted!

Wonky White Stars

Hope to get some more sewing time soon, and complete the blue/green flimsy!
