CurlyPops Two Hearts - The Production Line

**This is not a sponsored post, but I did receive the Phillips Perfect Care Aqua Iron as a gift to keep.

It's safe to say that this poor little blog has been very neglected lately....

A combination of full time work, living a whole new life, and then a bit of a stint in hospital has meant that I haven't had the time or energy for blogging... but I wanted to update everyone on the outcome of the CurlyPops TwoHearts Teatowel fundraiser.

I only have iPhone photos from the production line, so please excuse the photo quality!

There was much excitement in my office, when the giant box full of printed CurlyPops Two Hearts yardage arrived....

The stack to be cut, ironed, hemmed, re-ironed...

In completely serendipitous timing, I was contacted out of the blue to see whether I would like to test the new Phillips PerfectCare Aqua Iron...... ummmmm YES!!!

My iron was about 15 years old, and I was completely dreading the task of ironing 100 cotton linen blend teatowels.

It's soooo good!

I was able to iron four teatowels at once and steam them like you wouldn't believe. Even after 100 teatowels, there was still plenty of water left in the steam reservoir.

I have friends who have raved about these type of irons, and I never GOT it. Now I get it! I'm a convert for sure.

All cut and ready to hem

The most exciting part is seeing how much money we raised for the Heart and Lung Transplant Trust (Vic)

In other wonderful news, that I haven't been able to share until now. One of my TwoHearts friends has received his new heart and is doing really well. I'm so happy for him!  My other friend is still waiting and I'm hoping and praying that his call comes soon.

An extra special thanks to all my lovely instagram friends who let me use their photos, and to everyone who supported the project by spruiking or purchasing a teatowel. Crafty peeps rock!

That is one cool iron.

Hope that the hospital stint wasn't
anything major. If anyone can use the excuse of real life getting in the way of their blogging, you can, ma'am.

So glad to hear about your friend and will cross fingers and toes that equally good news comes soon for your other friend.

Love my tea towel but it is too nice to use. xx
