Sleepless nights.

So you know what that means right? Yep! I was scratching about at daft o'clock this morning looking for something quiet to be getting on with. My Gail Pan BOM won. I completed a block I had started a while ago and made inroads on another.
Now only one and a bit blocks remain to be stitched. I'm not promising to have this done by Christmas, or even the end of the year, but I really do want to complete it.
Although I abandoned one along the way and slowed down almost to a halt on others I really enjoyed taking part in and collecting the patterns for the Block a Month projects this year. I'm not sure if I'll begin any new ones in 2010, LOL It might be better if I just concentrate on what's already started, but who can resist a new design?
I'm working over Christmas as usual, so for me Christmas day will be Monday 28th and I'll have a full house, all the kids, their partners and mother. I'm in for a busy day. I've gotten most of the shopping done so for now, as it's my day off, I'm going to put my feet up and sew some more.
1) A day off, just when I really need it.
2) I'm all clean and tidy for Christmas.
3) The snow is not sticking.....down at sea level.

Christmas is delayed until Sunday in this house as Mal will be away working on the real day.
I tried to wean myself off BOM's but have failed miserably. I've already signed up for 3 in the New Year

Love and hugs GIna xxx

Sorry you're being a Christmas mouse in the night! At least you did find a quiet activity that produces great beauty :)
