    I have this warn out throw carpet on my floor that someone gave me used.. My table isn't big enough for me to do my ironing on... Now i always put a towel or blanket on the floor for an ironing pad.. well, I thought i'd save time and just do my ironing on this carpet... Or maybe I wasn't thinking at all... well, I have burnt marks on the carpet and burnt carpet residue on my iron... Now I'm waiting for the iron to cool so I can scrape off the melted carpet... I'm doin good today..

    Disclaimer* No quilt fabric was harmed in my act of stupidity! :lol:

    Thought you all could use a good laugh today! :wink:

    after reading your post I thought I would share- one time when i was about 14 I was helping this handicapped woman that lived down the hall. She asked if I could iron a shirt for her. I said sure no problem. I layed it on her GLASS table and started ironing. Next thing I knew the table busted and glass was everywhere. I felt so bad. She wasn't mad, but I still felt bad.

    Oh my! I'm sure glad your quilt wasn't harmed. The rest can be replaced. (Glad I'm not the only one who does boneheaded things) LOL :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I did the same thing...I thought that the padding I had put down was thick enough but it wasn't, the steam and heat crisped the very top of the carpet... I was going to have to replace the carpet, but the flood that year took care of it for me :roll: :roll:

    Did that at church one time on the chair, didn't completely ruin the chair. Anyhow they let me come back. Been going there for 10 years now.
