It was about time

My old iron was over 10 years old

The iron in the photo isn't actually my old iron, but my friend's spare iron which was exactly the same as mine that died.  She gave it to me, so I could keep sewing.  My iron died while I was in the middle of finishing up those Hilde tops!  I was trying to iron on some stabiliser, and I couldn't get it to stick and then I realised that the iron wasn't hot.

So today I went shopping (yes, again!  I also need a vacuum, but I think I am going to put that expense off for a few months) with my friend and bought an iron.  She told me to buy the pink one, and I laughed.  I was looking at purple Sunbeam, but they didn't have that one in stock, so I bought the pink iron!

I just had to get a new iron as well!
They didn't have pink so I got the purple!
So nice to have an iron again, as a sewr you just can't live without one!

Groovy iron! My iron only gets dragged out for weddings and special occasions :).
