Starry Mornings - Early....

Wednesday Morning Don had to be at work at 4:30 AM....So the clock was set for 3:50 am. But you know what it's like when you have an important reason for getting up early... you can't sleep.  You worry you will oversleep...Consequently, our house was up at 3:30 am.  Ripley and Bruno thought it was wonderful!!!

After the initial fit of, " I'm going to die if I don't get some more sleep.." Don assured me that I would live.  It was a choice to make...lay in bed mad at the world, or take advantage of the time..

I opted for a 3:40 am date with Cheerios.  I blew off the work out, and jumped in the shower for clarity.

Then I headed down to my sewing room. Radio playing in the background and puppies wrestling on the carpet I had about an hour and a half of quilt piecing.

Here are the end results:


When I was plundering through my old stash and scraps I found this old Sunshine and Shadow Thimbleberries print that I may calculate and see if I have enough for alternating blocks.  I am working on the stars with a quilter who doesn't blog.  We are both using the Temecula project to work on piecing skills.

So while I did go to bed early Wednesday night --- the day getting up early was completely worth it.....

I sometimes end up in the sewing room in the middle of the night when I have trouble sleeping. I don't usually run the sewing machine so the house stays quiet. But I play with fabric, look at patterns and books, and cut out applique parts.

Well I can't think of a better way to spend wee hours of a morning than the way you did...

I do my best sewing between 4-6 a.m. I go off to work feeling like I have accomplished something I like to do before I go do something I have to do (even though I like my job).

If you MUST be awake - you might as well quilt *s*

It really sounds wonderful to have the house to yourself (except for the pups) to sew in the wee hours of the morning. And you accomplished something!
