Quilting Induced Insomnia


Lately, I have been sleeping SO well, it seems almost unlike me. Passing out between 11 and 12, not waking up until 8 or 8:30, feeling refreshed and amazing.

Yesterday, I bought a jelly roll to make my friend who just had a baby a little quilt. I’m pretty excited to do this since A) she deserves something really nice since SHE is so giving and nice and B) It has been entirely too long since I made a quilt. It feels good to have a reason to make one since Jake said “How many friggen’ blankets do we need?” :/

Well, last night I slept AWFUL!! I had no issues falling asleep, but at 2:30 I woke up JITTERY and wide awake. I couldn’t stop thinking about making the darn thing! And all that other nonsensical stuff that goes through your head when you are awake and ungodly hours of the night..  At around 4, when I was STILL LYING THERE I decided to just get up and start sewing! I figured “hey, I’m awake, I may as well do something productive!”

I got to sewing, made two chunks of 4 strips sewn and pressed, then decided it was time for BED. I still didn’t actually go back to sleep until around 6:30, but at least Quinn waited until 9 to wake me up :)

What a sweet boy <3
