~ Manic Monday ~

Today I returned to work after my almost entire summer vacation. I seem to remember summer vacations being much longer as a kid!!! Anyway...being the prepared, slightly OCD SLP that I am, I arrived with my husband's hand truck ready to rearrange my therapy room (a skill that, as mentioned by my sister, runs in the family). 

It took a little longer than I expected, as I had to first remove furniture that was mistakenly placed in my room before I could get to my "stuff." But, no worries!!! The first day back is always exciting, bumps and all.

Having had a successful, if a little back breaking, day at work, I am looking forward to continuing working on my husband's quilt. Sunday I was able to finish making the blocks, save for setting and pressing the seams. As I am working on improving my techniques with quilting, I am trying really, really hard to press seams and not iron the crap out of them!!! But, I was not happy with how the material was laying. So, taking the advice of my sister, I pulled out my Best Press and got busy pressing. The blocks are really looking good!!!

I only got about 1/3 of the way through, but I plan on finishing tonight during the Braves' game.

Have a great week!

  1. Seeing your classroom, reminds me of the year I helped you set up your room. I hope you have a great school year.

  2. Best Press is one of my best friends. Learning to press and not to iron is so hard. I still catch myself making mistakes!

    I remember setting up my classroom. Sort of a bummer and exciting all at the same time. Good luck with your new school year. You are clearly one who cares, because you're there this early getting all set up. Good on you!

  3. Nice size class room...wish I had a sewing room that big ;-) Looking forward to seeing your progress on Glen's quilt.
