Time for a new Iron

This iron has served me well in it's lifetime. It has only ever done fun work. No ironing shirts for this baby. Only quilts and quilty stuff.

This week while making my appliques, I noticed that my star points were wrinkling up... I looked underneath, and sure enough the non-stick coating is peeling off the tip. I use the tip of my iron twice as much as the rest of the iron. Do you?

So this week, I'll be looking for a new iron.

I received an iron as a wedding shower gift 8 and a half years ago...it's still in mint condition! Tells you a lot about how rarely it's used! lol!

I've never had the Teflon or whatever that is peel off but then I never used my iron until I started quilting - had to go out and buy an ironing board.
