Staying awake

I don't know what is wrong with me these days - all I want to do is SLEEP!  I read a book, and my eyes are closed after only a few pages.  I try to watch a movie or a basketball game with my husband, and somehow I always miss the ending.  It seems that the only thing that keeps me awake these days is quilting.  Go figure.

I finished my May Bee Block for Ann, and plan to put that in the mail today.

June is my month, so I need to decide what I'd like people to help me make.  My first thought is this:
I copied this photo off the internet onto my computer quite a while ago and I have no idea from where - if this is yours, please let me know so I can give you credit.

It is simple, and I've been wanting to make one of these for years now - just haven't gotten around to it.  Besides, just by virtue of how the block is constructed, everyone who makes a block for me would actually end up making two blocks - is that cheating, do you think?

I've also decided to join the Zig Zag Quilt challenge.  It seems simple, and I'd like to make another baby quilt because it seems that quite a few of the people I know are discovering their fertility.  And if I win and get the quilt quilted for free - even better!

Busy weekend ahead with a brithday party for twin 8 year old girls on Saturday and a going away party for some colleagues/friends on Sunday - gotta make some little gifts for both.  And then, of course, there's the drive-in movies tonight.  It appears that my mother-in-law (who taught me to quilt in the first place!) might actually come for a visit, too!  No sleep for me this weekend!

Isn't it said that 'sleep is over-rated',, whatever that means. I had my grandson for a visit last weekend,, said goodbye to him on Tuesday, and it felt like I could sleep for a week. The quilt looks pretty scrappy,, is that how you might want yours??

I like the scrappy quilt. If one block will eventually render you two....hooray!!

I'm glad to hear your mother in law is well enough to come for a visit. Enjoy her stay!! (I already know you will!)

Have a fun weekend....

I don't recognize the photo, but it is really gorgeous! My kind of scrappy!

I'm not sure where you find the time to sleep with all you have in your schedule! The quilt block is great! And so scrappy.

I Nanna nap all the time. There's nothing wrong with it. Just do what your body tells you. You must need the down time.

I love your blocks and I think they'd be perfect for a bee.I dont think the two for one is an issue.
