    So, I was preparing to make a bow tucks bag. Getting all of my ironing done at once. Then I noticed that my fusible pellon wasn't fusing at all. O.K. tomorrow I will go get a new iron. I have had an Oreck that just quit working and now a Black & Decker that seems to have done the same thing. Then as I was trying desperately to squeeze that last little bit of heat from my broken iron, I noticed the button was OFF. Works much better in the ON position.

    My problem is remembering to turn off the iron. I always get the auto shut off just in case.

    oooohhhh That would be wonderful, but it doesn't happen here. We go to bed about 12:00 after napping on the couch and loveseat for about an hour. Then if I breathe too loud my DH gets up and stomps into the living room where he sleeps and then I fall to sleep...only to be woke up by packs of coyotes running through the yard howling. They give me the hibbiegibbies...so no sleeping around here.

    I've found --too many times --that it also helps to plug it in. Makes me feel like such a dolt!!

    My iron turns itself off, sometimes when I am still trying to iron when I am piecing.
