(here's a pic in case you were ever curious about the inside parts of a steam generating iron)
It took one split second, just one split second and then there was a crash. I guess trying to squeeze in another client alteration before bed---while tired and watching TV(only to keep myself alert while working)---wasn't such a good idea. All I know is the iron slipped off the ironing board, crashed to the floor and broken pieces of plastic went everywhere. I just knew that was the end of the iron. But from what the Hubby could tell all of the wiring still looks intact. So maybe it's not as bad as I thought. We'll see in the morning whether a bottle of super glue and re-screwing will help. If not then it's time to reorder another steam generating iron. My sewing room isn't complete without one. I guess there's always a bright side to most things---hey at least I didn't drop one of my sewing machines. For that we would have to call in some paramedics. LOL!!!!! And on that note, good night. I'm heading to bed before I break something else!
