While it’s true the seasoned veteran can do [whatever hobby/craft] with the oldest, most limited [insert appropriate piece of equipment here], sometimes the luxury of having Good Stuff can make a difference. Taking full advantage of JoAnn Fabrics’ Labor Day Sale, I bought myself a new iron – a Rowenta Focus (also in a damnable shade of pinkish lavender.) This sucker is heavy – it’s not something I’d want to spend a lot of time hunched over pressing clothes, but man – it surely makes pressing seams and fabrics a heck of a lot easier whilst seated. I got it for 30% off, and it was worth every penny.
I’m contemplating spray painting it black.
