See that map...that's where my wonderful husband will be for the next 6 months. We had 8 days notice for this deployment, so the last few days have been hectic getting all his gear together and packed up.
I don't know what's better...having months to prepare, or having just a few days to think about it. Either way, it pretty much stinks. But this is the life we signed up for and I wouldn't trade it for anything...the Air Force life has been good to us! I just don't have to jump for joy over these deployments, right??
So...on the quilty subject, most everything has been put on hold for the last few days. I'll have a bit more time I can spend sewing, so I should have lots to share!
As far as choosing a new iron, I've discovered that most of you are in the same predicament as I am. There just isn't a perfect iron out there! Most of you replied saying you had the same problems with leaking, lack of steam and heat, etc. Someone out there needs to figure out this problem for us quilters!!
