Bonehead Move

Sunday, I was downstairs sewing and went upstairs to see what the rest of the family was doing. 

For some reason I left the iron face down on the ironing board.  I never do that!  I was putzing around upstairs for about 20 minutes or so.

It's a good thing I headed back down when I did, isn't it?

Ugh!  Lesson learned - always, always put the iron back on the base.


  1. I have a tiny ironing board. I set it up on a stove top, and always set the iron on the stove. You have demonstrated for me why this is a good idea!

  2. Likewise, Marjie. I iron in the laundry room, and set the iron on top of the dryer....

  3. Yikes! That could have been REALLY bad! Glad you found it before things went up in smoke!

  4. So glad you checked on that before things got REALLY hot!

  5. Oh oh! I always unplug mine even for a few minutes and set it on a safe surface. I'm very concerned about fires.

  6. D'oh! I did the same exact thing this past weekend. Granted, I was still standing right there, because I wasn't finished ironing. It still scared me, though.


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
