This is probably the only place on the planet where you can brag that your husband got you an iron for your birthday!!

He picked me up an Oliso!! OMG I LOVE IT! I'm naming it Iron Man! Because I love Robert Downey Jr. who plays Iron Man and I love my Oliso!! After we came home from a lovely dinner, I cut out the borders for my quilt and ironed it all nice! I had so much fun! LOL!

The best part....there happened to be a rep at our local Costco and they were almost half the price that my local sewing shop was selling it for.

What a nice birthday! :D:D:D:D:D:D

Congratulations and a very happy birthday. I love it when a hubby "nails' a gift. You are a lucky woman.

Happy birthday! I too bought an oliso at Costco here and just LOVE it! I laugh whenever I lay it flat and hear it pop back up. Too cute! Well worth every penny....

Happy Birthday and its always special when you get what you want !! I have looked at those but can't find the money or the heart to pay that much for an iron.

That's awesome! And yes, your non-quilty friends won't get it, LOL.

I was thrilled to get a note from DH for my Christmas present this year - it said to gather all my scissors and bring them to him, he'd take them to be sharpened! I was thrilled, but non-quilty friends just scratched their heads when I raved about my great gift!

Happy Birthday and congrats on Iron Man. When my hubby gets me what I actually want his friends laugh at him and tell him you are going to be in trouble when she opens that (lol). He tells them they have to know me before saying that, that I ask for those things.
Are the borders you ironed for the mitered borders? Would love to know how it turns out :) I think I'll try that method next time too.

LOL! too funny! Yes, they are for the mitered borders I'm doing. I can't wait to see how they turn out as well! LOL!

WooHoo.....how fantastic. I know many women hate to receive gifts that "plug in"... but I for one would love it.

My husband had been warned that you never give your wife something with a plug for a gift so when I asked for the Oliso iron for Christmas last year he thought it was a joke. Nevertheless, he gave it to me almost apologetically for fear I really was kidding. It is the best iron I've ever owned. Because it makes that little squeaky noise when it picks itself up off the ironing board with its little feet, everyone can find me when I'm working in my sewing room! :) Enjoy the iron (whoever thought we'd say that to each other!!)

I don't mind gifts that plug in.....as long as they don't cook, vacuum, fill with water, dry clothes, light up a room.....unless any of those are going to be for my sewing room.
