    I have spent the last two hours sewing this friendship star and adding more to it. I had to redo it like twice. Now I am trying to figure out what fabric to use for strips along the sides.

    I like the yellow - are you sashing this to go with other blocks, or as a small stand alone?

    Thank you Celeste. I hand sewed everything but the outer edge. The light blue edges I machine sewed. I spent two hrs and 35 minutes sewing it by hand. I said enough is enough and took it over to the sewing machine...LOL :)

    Thanks Pam. And yes, I do sleep but I do suffer from insomnia at least twice a week. I do not take the medicine the doc gave me because it made me sleepwalk. So we are looking for other meds.

    Pam,

    Yeah I guess you could say that. Plus knowing I go back to work Wednesday is helping me do a lot now. Cause I know once I go back to work I will not be able to do it as much.
