Christmas Lights

I decided after work yesterday to be a little productive. I got my bag out with the fabrics purchased to complete Christmas Light's. I had extra four patches already made from another quilt that I am using in this quilt. But that is as far as I had gone.I got out the rotary cutter and ruler and the direction (always helps) and started cutting. I now have lots of blocks cut out. And I used one of my new toys to make the half square triangles-the Quilters Magic Wand. I love it!! So much easier than using the old little ruler with the holes down the center. I am ready to do some sewing after work today.

I was up until 11PM last night without a nap in the evening. I took benadryl AND melatonin last night. Surely I would sleep. Awake at 4 AM. I did manage to doze back to sleep and woke up at 5:30. This stinks!!

Thanks to Gretchen and Becky for their feedback on the quilt top "finished" over the weekend. I need to visit Bad Melisa to get borders. Shucks(not)!!!

Maybe your new schedule is 4 AM and you can just plan on getting some early sewing done???? I love the new notions that Pat and Mary Ellen *made* us buy too!!!

I can empathize with the sleep habits. I'll admit,though, that I slept like a baby while in MN/WI this past week. Hmmm, no worries, be happy = sweet dreams! Now how do I translate that to everyday life since I'm home???

Hope that you are sleeping better! Enjoy the trip to SH!
