oh too true. This happens in my house too.
Oh, this made me chuckle so this morning! I am forever doing this...trying to multitask and completely forgetting where I started in the first place! Great post! Sweet blessings from Maine!Laura
Yes! If I push on the iron really hard while it's still cold, it'll still work, right?
You mean I am not the only one that does that?! Thanks for keeping me company. :^D
LOL....yes that auto shutoff is annoying when I do that! (and it is often)
That is exactly how I use my iron. LOL
I feel as though you are looking through my window.
Oh this is SO ME!! Thank you for the morning chuckle ;)
Haha! That is so true!
I do that too ~ so funny. I have to say that I got an iron that I can set so it doesn't turn off ~ it's a Reliable and it's orange! Got it at Fabric Depot.
Amen, that's my story too!I channeled you and your onesies, twosies quilting tip last week when I was stippling for a friend. I tell you, that's the best advice ever. Hope life in your world is going well.
Ahh, how many times it happens to all of us, it's so true! Specially step 2! :))))
You use an iron like I do. I hate auto shut off. It always shuts off about 2 minutes before I need to use the iron again.
You are too funny! I've done that many many times myself. Love your stick figures!
Hahaha! I love it.
Too funny! And so true...which is exactly why my new (auto-shutoff) iron is still in the box and I'm limping along with my old one which stays on all the time.
I am right there with you all! I'm looking for a new one today. I could smell something that smelled like burning rubber. Finally nailed it down to coming from the sole plate of the iron after crawling on hands and knees checking all the cords and plugs I have plugged in. Frustrating beyond all words!
done that, done that, done that, a 1000 times! so annoying
Ha! My iron doesn't shut off, so I turn it on, then sometimes get distracted and come back into my room half and hour later and it's still on :-O.
oh my heck! giggle, giggle. c'est moi!
Get one without auto shut off!
This is why I bought one without auto shut off. ;-)
too funny, and too true !
You have been watching me in my sewing room - I do this all the time! Thanks for my laugh of the day.
Seriously, you need to get this printed on to a T-shirt... you'd sell millions :0)
This is so funny!
110% True.And it's so difficult to find irons that don't have auto shut-off these days :-(
LOL! Oh I've done that so many times. Now my iron heats super quick. I'm very happy with it.
Have you been watching me?
Oh, so Funny! This is my life!
LOVE this! And I would have to agree with so many previous comments... I spent so long trying to find an iron without auto shut-off... the temp dial has broken its little plastic bits, but I've kept it TAPED ON at the cotton/linen setting. Wonderful illustrations, too!
Jajajaja. I do just the same, I'm glad I'm not the only one!!!
This is so true. I have a cordless iron and it is exactly like this
Ha ha ha! Such a universal complaint! But I cant do without that automatic shut-off. I tried an iron without it, and ended up with a hole burned through my ironing board cover when I forgot to turn it off overnight. Yipes!
LOLLLL.....Now I know I am not alone!ChristineChrisW Designs
I'm with Suz - that's worthy of a t-shirt!
Yep, added another one to the 'me too' list
Hilarious. I hate auto shut off. Thanks for sharing this. It made me smile. I came by after googling you from a pinterest post onfmq tutorial. Haven't found it yet. Enjoying my visit. Have a great rest of the week.Sherry
you've been watching me!
Exactly right. I thought it was my age.... I've left my iron on for days before so I can't risk not having auto shut-off but it sure is a challenge sometimes. If only it would heat in 5 seconds!
I love reading your comments, thank you for coming by!
