love for my tools

tools-1

The day, almost the hour, after I received my new birthday tools, I put them to good use: steaming the swatch for my Knittin’ Little submission.

And then remember when I made Greg that new pair of jeans? A huge part of why they look so good are my new birthday tools. ┬áThat, my friends, is a new iron to replace the travel iron I’ve been using since 2004. And a sleeve roll to iron on top of (perfect for sticking in jeans legs, too, when you press your seams).

I super love them. Good tools make everything easier. I couldn’t resist sticking them on some lovely hand marbled paper and styling them up like queens and kings.

What’s your favorite tool? Do you also harbor an unhealthy love for your iron?
