Ever have one of those days when the world could come crashing down around you and you just don't care? Well, that's not exactly what I mean. But I was at the gym at 6 AM - had a great workout and I'm back to using that foam roller again. You know how it is - you work out all the kinks and think - PHEW - I'm good. But the lack of stretching, the lack of foam rollling massage and those darn IT band knots have come back to my hips. I'm pretty stiff these days, but painful foam rolling will make me feel a whole lot better. OUCH OUCH OUCH!!!!!
Had my relaxing time in the steam room and I walked out of that gym feeling like I could conquer the world. I wasn't able to get to the Monday sewing group as I had to leave work early - had a PRESSING appointment for a mammogram in the afternoon! Actually it wasn't that bad and before I knew it - I was out of there and rather than go back to work, I can home and sewed on Quiltcon projects until late in the night. I have to confess that I'm LOVING my quilt. It looks exactly like it is supposed to - the colors are eye popping and I can't wait to see it finished.

Speaking of selvedges - I saw this quilt on Facebook last night.

Well - as I got started last night on my Quiltcon quilt, I had another very PRESSING issue which was annoying. It would appear that my iron conked out!!! Yikes!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
I have a really nice, really heavy Reliable iron - yes there is some IRONY in that name!!!! But for the most part - the iron has served me well. But the steam button wouldn't shut off and I hate to have all that steam blasting through the room. Keep that thought in your head for one second - steam button!!!! And water was leaking out of it.

I grabbed the Maytag cordless iron. This is practically an antique now and don't look for it in stores because they stopped making them. I do LOVE the iron, but sometimes you do have to wait for it to reheat. But the cordless concept - it's awesome.

Then after I had pressed a dozen seams or so --- I relooked at athe steam button. AHA!!!!
It would appear that I'm dyslexic. Yep - I was pushing the button down to turn on the steam - when in fact, I had to release the button UP to get the steam. I was a much happier camper after that. All is good and there are FOUR seams left in the Quilcon top. Get it on the long arm tonight and I should be good to have that thing ready for the crate on Monday morning.
Well - I have more pictures to post, but I'll save them for tomorrow. I have a pressing issue like getting ready for work!!!!
Have an awesome day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
