Ok, I told you all that yesterday was going to be a lazy day here at Chez Nana. I should have clarified … lazy in the sense that I was going to do whatever I wanted … and if you’ve been following very long, you will know that means quilting. I got the I Spy quilt completely quilted … it’s ready for binding and gift-giving. I was really beginning to wonder if I’d have it done in time for Christmas … and I finished with time to spare. Whew! I’ll try to get a picture today after it’s been bound and washed/dried … but we’ve got rain in the forecast, so the weather conditions may not be conducive to getting a picture. But I promise to get a picture before I give it away.
For the second night in a row, I could NOT fall asleep. Wednesday night, I tossed and turned until midnight. Last night, I didn’t even toss and turn … I got up and spent some time on the laptop, getting caught up on emails and blog. It was after 2:00 before I finally fell asleep. I was sure that I’d fall asleep easily last night as I was pretty tired from not enough sleep Wednesday night. Hoping I’ll be tired enough to fall asleep easily tonight!
I didn’t even think about going outside to see the meteor shower.
Because I’m still so very tired, it’s going to be another lazy day here at Chez Nana today. I do intend to put the binding on the I Spy quilt, and I hope to do a little more piecing on the disappearing four patch wall quilt … but I may just take it easy, just do a little reading. DH and I have been talking about seeing Lincoln … not sure that I have enough energy to get all gussied up to go out … and I’m worried that I might fall asleep in that dark theater!
A couple of months ago, I finished a wall quilt for our bedroom. I’ve been searching since then for a wall rack for hanging the quilt … and I was not coming up with anything that was going to work. I was beginning to despair that I would ever get the quilt hung. Then last night, during my bout with insomnia, I found this tutorial on how to hang a quilt. Ding ding ding!!! We have a winner!!! Not only is it simple, but there won’t be anything to detract from the quilt, and it’s easy peasy. And best of all, it isn’t going to set me back a pretty penny! If I had any energy at all, I’d be doing the happy dance.
