This weekend I headed out with the kids on garages sales. It has been a bit since i have picked up anything worth mentioning– but sat. I got a few goodies.
I picked up a Cordless Oreck Iron. I have never had one of these and at $2 i thought to myself I'd give it a try. In the last issue of the Sewing Cottage magazine there was a question- what was your favorite iron? and more than a few had this brand on it. So, why not? Thoughts so far— it isn't as heavy as my Rowenta. But it does get hot! Plenty hot i think. Plus i don't have to fight the roller cart wheels with the cord. that is the whole point- isn't it?
I also picked up a sewing box. This one is missing the feet and the front knobs– but really who cares? It just sits there anyways. I was thinking of changing out the top fabric…but the underneath is still tight and so- i might just leave it because i don't feel like messing with it.
It does the typical fancy open thing. I can't wait to get it wiped down and all loaded— hmmmm the things i should put inside….
I have been working this past week on a few new things for the upcoming issue of The Sewing Cottage Magazine.
After looking at the projects I finally picked up on their re-curring theme. 1/2 Square Triangles.
So, be prepared to grab your pile of leftovers.
Along with it all– Jerika turned 15. Yes. I have a 15 year old. She is a beautiful, patient and talented gal. She loves her soccer- and is good with it. She is a great older sister to the youngers….and has a wonderful inner drive to do her homework on time. Bless her.
