I made good progress today even though I didn’t start sewing until the afternoon. I told Keith I need a reason get out of bed – I’m not getting to sleep until 7ish in the mornings and I’d sleep all day if I don’t push myself to get up. We had a lunch date by the lake and then I went on a hike before getting to work. I love that there are benches placed in spots along the trails here. I don’t often stop and sit but it’s great knowing that I could if I wanted to. It was beautiful here in the low 60’s and a perfect day for a hike.

I love reaching the point in a project when I’ve made enough blocks to throw up on the design wall and see if I’m going to like it. Yep, I am going to like this combination!


  1. Love your quilt! and the benches look so inviting. I’m sorry you have insomnia. I couldn’t function without a good nights sleep. I deliberately have a set time to get ready for bed and rarely change from what I call my biological sleep setting. I actually get ready for bed early so that when I start to feel drowsy watching a movie all I have to do is walk into the bedroom. Drop into bed and fall asleep. If I don’t get ready early, the whole process of changing into PJ’s, shower or brushing my teeth wakes me up. I’m usually asleep by 10:30 and up at 6:30 am.

  2. Your quilt is going to be beautiful. I love the colors! I don’t know how you stay up all night. I can’t even sew at night because my eyes won’t focus by then. I love getting up early in the morning and would miss that. I hope at some point you can get back to sleeping at night.
