Work, sleep, work, sleep (sew)

Somehow, my 8 - 2:30 workday turned into 8 am - 8 pm. Ugh! I did take a stroll through town with my hubby at lunch so it wasn't all bad, but oh, what a day! A bath is running right now because I need to ease the ache in my shoulders. It has been work, sleep, work, sleep for a couple days now.

I did manage an hour or so of sewing on Monday. These are my Bee Blocks for March - the focus fabric was to be the multicolored Asian print, and we could make anything we wanted. The first block is a variation of the Cheyenne block - a variation because I didn't have enough of the black or gold to make it the right way.

The second block is me trying to use up all the fabric she sent. I hope she meant it when she said to make anything we wanted.

It was fun to have a little bit of play time because that has been missing in my life lately. Once this scholarship event that I am planning is over, I'm going to take a little time off. I'm exhausted. And my bath is calling. So sorry to everyone whose blog I haven't read in weeks - I promise to get caught up when I have the time.

All work and no play ...makes Erin a tired girl!

Hoping this phase will be over soon, and you can go back to actually having a life aside from sleep, work, sleep, work...
