What a night! After my post last night, we watched a movie while I unsewed the middle block from the coloring book quilt and glass-etched a set of baking pans for a wedding shower Saturday. (I rarely just SIT).
Just as we were going to bed at 11 PM (which is late for me), I remembered that I had left a load of laundry in the washer. Heavens! A cardinal sin around these here parts. So I sat and hand-sewed in the laundry room while that load dried. I made some progress on my GFG. Then I could. not. sleep. I seriously tried.
To make a long story short, I didn't go to bed until 3:30 and did not fall asleep until after 5. Still got up at 8. I tried to nap a while ago and only slept 20 minutes. What's wrong here??
The up side is that I now have 5-1/2 blocks on the mother ship (as shown above) and have basted numerous diamonds and my whole next block is basted and ready to assemble.
Just now I selected fabrics for the next 2 blocks to go in the spaces on the board above so I can attach them to the mother ship as I am calling it when they are pieced. This is going so well. I can't explain it, but I get great satisfaction from making things. Especially small things. Especially small pretty things. People who don't sew or do crafts just do not get it.
I am machine quilting peacock feathers in the sashings of my friend's quilt. I have had some thread breakage issues, but not nearly as many as before replacing the needle with a smaller one. I will get back to that after my next post.
