    Any night owls sewing tonight?

    I am looking at a long night. I have a craft fair Saturday and am no where near ready, so I am sewing to the wee hours. Anyone else find themselves sewing late into the night? What are you working on? For me, it's rag quilts. Lets cross our fingers I don't fall asleep in the process!

    I just gave up the ghost. But went down to the studio at 9pm to get at least 1/2 the binding put on a 108 x 86 client quilt. Good luck staying awake. Do Not sew your finger in! Will also hope for good results at craft fair.

    I can't sleep, and was just looking at fabric to make table runners and hot pads for Christmas gifts. Only slept 2 hours last night stressing over a doctor appt today, and now can't sleep because of the info I got today at it..May get going on them, or sew stockings for an orphanage house my girls and I are adopting this Christmas...

    Working on an applique' crazy quilt for a co-workers premature baby. I have to have it all done by December 21st for our winter break. I feel sooo behind, so here I sit trying to get the embroidery details in on the applique' that I already have done.

    Wish me luck I get this all done, last time I take on a project that is all hand stitched from start to finish....UGH

    I'm usually a night owl and often quilt/sew into the wee hours. I'm just more productive at night. . . I should be a 3rd shift worker! I spent most of the day working on a couple of Christmas presents and a doggie coat for my Toby. I have an eye appointment tomorrow morning so I have called it a night; want my eyes to be rested when they get checked!

    It's 1:00am and I had to give up. My back is killing me, my eyes are dry, and my wrists hurt from fighting the rotary cutter. Time to call it a night. I've cut, pieced and quilted almost 18 hours today. I will be up again in 6 hours to do it all over. Luckily, my late night efforts has left me with the flannel cut for 3 rag quilts that need done tomorrow. And thankfully, I stopped before I sewed my finger or something!

    It's another night here reading the quilting board, wondering how to get everything done at home. I'm on my 10th day in the hospital, my timing for getting sick has put a huge monkey wrench into Christmas.

    Wish I could work late into the night but a year or so ago I found I kept making mistakes after 9pm so decided it was best to read after 9 and leave the sewing for day light hours.

    Good luck and I wish you the best for your Craft Fair!

    It's 11 pm here and I am sewing a doll for my youngest grandgirlie, sewing bindings and contemplating the pillowcaases I'm going to make. I'm thinking I might make some mug rugs too.

    I know it is 7.30am here and just finished breakfast. Reading quilting board and planning my day of sewing but must go food shopping as well or shall I do it on line for delivery? I plan to finish my bucket holders for friends and just wrapping up 2 gifts. I am waiting for a twister ruler to finish a test pattern I have designed, trust me to select a size of square I don't own.
    Finished is better than a UFO
