Finally... some progress

My husband was out of town Saturday, Sunday and Monday, so I didn't get a lot of stuff done this weekend. Tuesday and Wednesday, I napped. I have a terrible habit of staying up til 2am (sometimes 4am) when my husband is away. I hate sleeping alone, so I stay up and watch tv until I collapse. Today has been the first day that I woke up full of energy and I finally got some things done.

Here's a picture of me that my son took this weekend. This is how you find time to look at blogs and still have fun with your 5 year old. This is just one of many towers he built on my back. I'm just lucky none of the stuff fell on the computer. There are books under the black blanket.

Here are the 18 log cabin blocks I completed this morning. 16 are all solid, while 2 have a patterned blue fabric. The 2 patterned ones will be pillow slipcovers for my mom. The others.... a quilt? I started cutting and couldn't stop. Unfortunately there wasn't as much of the solid blue fabric as I thought. I cut enough black to make another 6 blocks but the blue fell short. 

A Christmas present for one of my nieces. Only 4 rows left but I had to take a break after knitting almost 4 inches of it this morning.

My ambitious afternoon. Not sure how much of this I will get done but it's nice to be busy. Now it's time to finish lunch and then back to it until the kids come home in 2 hours. 


  1. Sounds like a pretty normal life to me!

  2. Haha -- love the picture of the stuff piled up on your back. Don't you just love boys?!? And I know *exactly* what you mean about staying up late, late when your husband isn't there. My husband is a FF and he works 24 hours and is off 48, which means he's not home every third night. I often will sit up and watch TV until I fall asleep with it on, on those nights! :)
