It is the middle of the night and I am tired but when in bed, I can't get to sleep,  This has been going on for awhile, so I went to my sleep apnea doc.  She seems to think that I have poor sleep hygiene habits.  BUT, I am not doing anything differently than I was.  It also doesn't help that I ran out of my restless leg meds and the pharmacy wouldn't refill because it was too soon for the insurance to pay.  So, I lay there and toss and turn and twitch my legs all over.  Not a pretty sight!

My sister was here last weekend for her annual birthday visit.  We did some shop hopping and visited some relatives.  We did have a wonderful time.  BUT, I didn't get much sewing or quilting done.

I have committed to sewing some crib bumpers and skirts for a friend who will be having twins--one of each.  It has been a long time since I have sewn something besides quilts.  Did you know that the seam allowance is now one half inch rather than the five eighths that it used to be.

I have started my "Ghastlies" quilt.  I am using a pattern called "The Big EZ" by Bloom Creek.  I fussy cut all of the 4 inch and 7 inch squares.  I wasted some fabric, but I wanted the Ghastlies to show!

I finished my three quilties and forgot to take pictures.  Too late now, the package is in the mail.  Maybe Sandie will take a picture for me?!

I think that I will try to lay down and sleep again.

Did you notice that I changed my background.  It is suppose to be Halloween but it doesn't show up very well.  I may have to change it again.  Oh, one more thing.  I signed up for a Christmas candle mat exchange at "Gone Stitchin'"  Check it out!

Happy Quilting!


  1. Sorry to hear about your sleep issues. I read and serf the web when I can't sleep.
    Your blog backgrounds are always nice, loved the Halloween background. I need to play with mine ;D

  2. I hate it when I can't sleep. My "rule" is I'll lay awake for an hour after that I get up and read on the living room couch which usually sends me to sleep in an hour or so. No quilting for me yet this week -- I'm recovering from quit retreat!

  3. I have used the Big EZ on two of my recent quilts on my blog--stop by and take a look. I am also doing The Ghastlies Blog Hop....

    Having a giveaway too--come by and see!
