I received some upsetting news this week (regular "life" stuff), and I did something I don't do often. I wanted to shop for something to make me feel better. I purchased a big girl quilt tool--a tiny iron. My oldest daughter informed me that it was the smallest iron she has ever seen. Well . . . that's the point.

Never done that before, but I wanted to complete the quilts as directed. I should have bought one of these tools years ago! I don't anticipate burning the tips of my fingers as much as trying to manipulate a regular iron in these small fabric areas. It's the little things that get me excited. I guess that is a sign that I lead a good life!
