are you kidding me?

My hubby gets mad when I leave my iron on.  He says he smells something hot sometimes, goes in the quilt room and finds it on.  I thought I bought one with an automatic shut off.  Apparently not.

I left my quilt room to finish browning some meat one night and left it and my sewing machine on thinking I'd be back down to take care of it quickly.  I got distracted, we finished dinner and I rushed the mob out the door for basketball practice.

Then I smelled something fishy...

Yes...you guessed it!  My iron fell to the floor and burned a hole in my rug clear down to the pad!

I've cleaned off the iron now, looks good as new but it still smells funny when it gets hot.  So, I have it in the garage and turn it on and off in 10 min intervals because it smells like burnt carpet.  I don't think it's a good idea to use it until the smell goes away.  Thank goodness for back-up irons.
Wish I could say the same about the carpet!
