That karma things seems to be back. I'm gettin' ready for work, but figured I ought to just sit down and let my xanax kick in before I hurt myself. I was just ironing my clothes for work - having just decided on something I like and that makes me feel good. I needed that today. But I turned around quick to see what a kitty was doing and I dropped the iron for one second, picked it up and continued. Or tried to anyway. It didn't take long to find out that when I had dropped the iron, it was so hot it melted/fused the carpet fibers to it and before I knew what had happened, the whole mess, iron included, was fused to one of my favorite sweaters.... and then looked down to see a big melted spot on the carpet.

You may smell pine trees at your house, but all I can smell is burned carpet and clothes.

Just keeping you informed. Fa-la-la.

Hmmm ... seems to me someone is in need of some good luck candles. Will have to look into that. Maybe Grandma's can suggest something that'll work. Glad you weren't hurt though. Just remember to breathe. xxoo

So sorry to hear about your kitties and your sweater.

I've had cats with colds before. A shot and some meds cleared it right up. Little kitty probably had it and gave it to big kitty. I think everything will be ok. They both sound too naughty for it to be too serious.

Take a deep breath, things will be ok.

Good thoughts, prayers, and hugs to you and the kitties.


Can't stop thinking about you. You know I'm convinced there are bloggers out there who could make that whole "iron/carpet/sweater" into a new trend in recycled crafting & maybe even turn the trend into a book deal. Just thinking.
Take care & share news soon!

Rollerwriter is on to something there. Remnants of sweater + other clothing scraps = throw rug to cover carpet damage?
