    Default What a nice surprise!!

    My GF spent Columbus Day 3 day weekend with me in order to learn to make her first quilt for
    Her DD's baby shower in November. It turned out just beautiful and her DD was very excited.

    Well today she stopped by on her way back to Wilmington NC and brought me a thank you gift!
    I hope the picture does them justice. But I was so touched that she thought of me when she saw these at a local shop in Wilmington!
    They will be going into my newly cleaned sewing room!!!

    They will make great bookends!

    I remember my mother telling me when she was a little girl they had two irons. They would heat them up on the top of the stove and iron with one till it got too cool, then swap it out with the second one.

    Awesome!

    My dad has 2 of those - both me and my sister will get one each. They are really cool!
    How sweet of her to think of you.

    Don't let Jenny Doan near these. You know she has her own special collection, right?

    Beautiful!!

    What a nice Thank You gift. I used to have several of those irons, wonder where they could be.

    I wonder if they were stolen and ended up in Dunham Massey (National Trust House, UK)? I tried to lift one of those, better than a gym workout!

    Those are awesome! Did you know that Jenny collects old irons? She has one wall in her office at M* filled with old/antique irons.

    I did mention to my GF that Jenny collected old ones! I was so excited when I got them!
    And they are very heavy!! Show a bit of wear but not too much. It was a nice surprise.
    We worked together for many years and were private duty nurses to each other during our surgeries!
    She is a special friend!!
