So I have been using my grandmothers ancient iron forever with no issues. Until I decided to sew myself a super cute pin up shirt with this fabulous vintage hibiscus print fabric I have been hording for years. So it's all going well until I need to press a seam, and then I proceeded to melt the fabric to the iron the second it touched the fabric. It was napalm before I even knew what was up. That iron is now in the trash. With the top. There was no a scrap of fabric left over, so it all hit the trash. God dammit. Well, that's what xanax is for!

Lets all go to Jack Taylor's to celebrate!

Oh No! How annoying is that? I have a new fangled iron that my mum got me, and I constantly burn things with it, including my fingers  Roll Eyes My $20 iron that I had when I first moved out of home never did that too me. Although once it spat water at me, unfortunately that water landed on my leg and I had stockings on, and it managed to melt the stockings. They were stuck to my leg - much pain was involved!!!! I didnt even know that irons boiled water, but apparently they do. well that one did!

These are my footprints, so perfect and so small. These tiny footprints, never touched the ground at all.
Not one tiny footprint, for now I have my wings. These tiny footprints were meant for other things.
