String piecing and crochet
Not so smart was my decision to keep sewing and crocheting till 3am Saturday night waiting to see if I needed to pick him up from the after party. I have a very bad habit of staying up too late stitching. I find I get a lot more done at night time, I guess cause I don't get the guilts about not doing the housework at night! It is a bad habit I really need to break, I get so engrosed in what I'm doing that I often don't feel tired. How do you get to be middle aged and still not want to go to bed?? Can a night owl be reformed? I think if I'm going to survive the next stage of my life I need to try. I've been spurred on by the sight of a good friend out on a run this morning, I can barely drag myself out of bed and there was Kay running down beach road. Last time I saw her she told me she had just taken up running, she's very inspiring. Stay tuned.
I did get 2 of the inner borders on my jubilee quilt and I think they'll be staying. It has taken me weeks to decide what I was doing with it. Next up will be the applique border, thats when things will get really interesting. If I don't get it right I might have to find a floral.hahaha
Happy stitching till next time,
