I was gently, diligently, carefully pressing my top (it's a secret for now!) using my seam gauge that Fabric.com sent me as a gift. Looking up, I can't find it.
"Where is that damn gauge when you need it?"
I search under the ironing board, under the shirt, under and around the boxes that are under the ironing board, and in my pockets. I finally look on the bottom of the iron. Double damn! When I was pressing the hem, I must have set the back of the iron on the plastic gauge. The gauge has melted onto the iron. I used two pins to scrape it off the iron. No long-term damage but my seam gauge is dead. Drat. I received it free as a gift with a fabric purchase from Fabric.com. Maybe I'll beg for another with my next fabric purchase.
Hope everyone had a happy holiday. I got some cool stuff that I'll share once I have some pictures.
