My good friend Charissa told me that my present was in the mail and that I couldn't open it until Christmas. When the package arrived I called to tell her my present had arrived safely. She surprised me by saying that I could open it now.
Really? Are you sure?
Yes, I could definitely open my present.
So I opened my first Christmas present of the season.
Lo and Behold my new iron!
It is a Reliable digital Velocity.
I have been wanting a new iron as my old one was pretty crappy and wasn't really made for pressing. Cursorily I have been researching irons and heard some good things and bad things about the Rowentas. But I hadn't really commited to buying an iron anytime soon. But thanks to Charissa's inquiring mind and Carla doing a little research I have a really beauty and soon to be workhorse of an iron.
This iron is serious. It is funny to be so excited about an iron, but I was doing a happy dance about my iron. I have only used it once and it is like ironing with a whistling tea kettle. This puppy throws off some serious steam. As the sewing projects progress and more ironing ensues I will report back on the iron as I figure it out.
Thank you Charissa! You are a ROCKSTAR!
