That's right my $150 Rowenta iron is in the garbage!! GRRR! When I was sewing on Friday I noticed a few drops of water off the bottom of the iron so I quickly unplugged it as it looked like it was coming from the area around the cord. I few minutes later when I came back to look at it my ironing pad was soaking wet! All the water had drained out of the iron onto my ironing pad!! Double GRRRR! I bought this iron a year and a half ago and I had heard the stories about how some Rowenta's leak but usually the ones made in China. This one is made in Germany. So off to Walmart I went and got a new $40 T-Fal iron. I like the T-Fal irons, that is what I had before the Rowenta and I know they will last more than 1 1/2 years!
I have been busy quilting but most of what I have been working on are clients christmas gifts and since I was told by a follower that she caught her hubby checking out my blog one night I though I better be careful what I post! Too funny!
I updated our guild's blog this morning ( link on the left sidebar), lots of great quilts to see there. We had a retreat and you can see my project there. Also added a post about the great Trunk show we had by two past presidents at our Nov meeting.
Here is a peek at what I was piecing when my iron crapped out. The fabric collection is called Let it Snow by Moda and since we now have a lot of snow here I was in the mood to cut it up and get this quilt made. I'll show you more once I get it quilted in December.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
