The table is indeed "wobbly" but today we're making a trip to Lowe's to buy something, I'm not sure what, that my husband and his friend Larry think will stabilize it. They're going to put two new legs on it that will also fold up. When you fold the sides up there's only one leg that swings out to support each side. They're adding an additional one on each side so there's one for each corner. It's not so wobbly that I can't use it or I would have returned it. But I'll be more comfortable if it's a bit more stable. And those cords are an issue for me - I ended up taping them to the baseboard with clear packing tape and it's much better. This is an old house and places to plug things in are few and far between.
We also doubled the size of my design wall. I like to use the 4 x 8 sheets of insulation. I don't put flannel on it because flannel won't hold a whole quilt top for me so I end up pinning anyway and the flannel ends up covered with threads, which I hate. This really added lots of room for ongoing projects. As you can see I'm in the middle of a few!
Edited: Terry posted about this and it came from here http://thimblemouseandspouse.blogspot.com/2012/08/back-to-school-days-blog-hop-party.html. This little cord holder has been my focus the last couple of days. Well really my Dots on Dots project for the next blog hop has been my focus but this drew my attention as well. I've made 19. :) What great gifts! Everyone I know wants one or four! You roll up your phone or e-reader cord and tuck inside. What a great way to store them attractively on your desk or to travel with.
And then there's school. I'm working as a high school guidance counselor this semester. I'd forgotten a few things...like bulletin boards you have to cover. Here are a couple in the hall outside my door.
This Time one is my favorite I think. The clock is set for the time the first bell rings for school. :) All the little clocks are set at random times. My husband stapled every one of those little clocks and each hand individually for me.
Maybe the stars are my favorite. :) These are John Wesley's rules. If you click on the picture you should be able to read them all. I'm trying hard to present positive thoughts to the kids.
It's been a long time since I worked with kids this age but I've had lots of fun and the first time one of them said, "Mrs. Bush, I love you!" I remembered everything I enjoyed about them. Even if it was because I changed her schedule for the third time.
