12.24 am:  I've just finished sewing for the night.
Time for bed!

I do believe I will be sleeping in,  in the morning!  Cos well... I'm tired.  It's so hot and humid I am bound to toss and turn for an hour before getting to sleep.

Then imagine a hot flush waking me up in about 2 hours, then again in another two hours ... yeah, I don't get much sleep.  Certainly not in this weather.

So... it's a very early start to the blog today ... even though I haven't actually been to bed yet.  *smiles*

I'm very happy with how much sewing I got done tonight (Monday night)!  I never thought I'd get to the stage I did with my special project!

There is a very good chance I might get it done and off to a professional quilter in about a week!  Maybe less.  

This project is getting professionally quilted as it needs to be done asap... no more will be said on that.

Once I'm up, probably around 8, I shall be doing housework then back to my sewing project. 
A pretty boring blog day sorry!  

Tonight the Fat Bottomed Girls are being represented at a pub quizz night, I'm going!  It should be fun.  I've never been to a quizz night before... do ya drink?  Cos dammit, even if I wanted to, I can't.  Cos I'm on anitbiotics and pain meds for the bloody tooth eh?  Grrrrr.

Ya can't drink eh?  I dunno.

Oh well... enough yabber, I gotta get to bed!


12.30 pm:   Sorry there's not been an update this morning, I really am frantically trying to get this special project done and off to a quilter.
It will be clear once I can tell you why.

So, I've been sewing since 9 am... time to take a break and have some lunch and me pills.  The tooth isn't so bad today.

We had a massive and very impressive thunder and lightening storm at 2 am this morning!  I got to watch it all as I was still awake.  
I think I got to sleep around 3 am.

So there might be a nana nap happening between 2-3 today!

No nap happened.  I was hell bent and determined to get the surprise to a certain point, and I did it!  Man have I done well.  You have no idea.  I can't wait to show you.

Tomorrow I should get to another 'certain' point, then I have to find a professional quilter in a hurry!  This project need to be finished asap.

I'm now waiting for the pulled pork pies to be finished, then I can pull them out of the oven, feed the family then run out the door to the pub quizz!

I will have to eat my dinner when I get home.

ABOVE:  Dinner pies ... super YUM!  Will be having the 2nd one tomorrow night.

The pub quizz was fun.  Lovely to see some FBG girls that I'd not seen for weeks.  We didn't win, but then, it wasn't about winning.  It was about having fun.

Utterly exhausted, off to bed now.  No sewing tonight.

  2. I hope you got some sleep. Quiz night sounds fun, I am pretty sure it is not compulsory to drink haha.
