Sleepless nights are not for me. I went to bed at a normal time & as soon as my head hit the pillow, my body said, “I’m not sleeping.” I tossed and turned until 1:30 and finally got up. I went back to bed around 4:30, not because I was tired but because I had to try to get some sleep. The problem was my sometimes obsessive brain. I found a Quilt-Along to join and was obsessing over what fabric I might use.
Seriously. That was what was keeping me up.
I hope they don’t keep me up at night…
I watched a movie with my Husband last night (A-team, it was better than I expected), & took the opportunity to finish a scarf that has been almost done for a while now. I’m calling it my Survival Scarf. I got the yarn for the scarf about a week after my heart surgery, I had some time between Doctor’s visits, so my Mom & I went to check out the yarn shop. It was sitting there so lovely on the sale shelf, I just couldn’t leave it there. I spent a lot of my time, in the first couple of months, working on it while riding back & forth between home, the clinic & the hospital. As soon as I was able to lift & drive again, I put it down & forgot about it. Well, actually I just got really busy going to cardiac rehab & preschool & clinic visits & trying to keep the house up too. Well, now it’s done & I can use it! I love it! The colors are beautiful & the pattern is pretty too.
