I've been a bit lax on joining challenges this year. But there's one sponsored by Val's Quilting Studio that seems to be an easy commitment.
All I have to do is collect my spare change for the year. That's relatively easy. I put my change collector in the laundry room. That way it's handy to use for any change that gets left in the wash, plus I'm the only one that goes in there, so hopefully that will limit any plundering by the rest of the family. Here's what I'm using:
I found this in the cabinet over the refrigerator. It looks to be a good size. Hopefully it will hold enough to buy a new iron. My last two irons have been emergency purchases at Walmart. My last "nice" iron burned up in the middle of a project and I just ran out to get something that would work. The one I have now still heats up, but it can't deliver steam or a spray of water anymore. I don't use those features for pressing blocks, but they sure are nice when I'm pressing washed fabric.
