What I did for my Friday Night Sew-in

I fell asleep!  I started out all excited about staying up late and sewing until the wee hours of the morning.  I grabbed myself a cold beer, my projects and some batteries for my camera and I downloaded the audiobook... The Hunger Games...  

I began to cut my pattern pieces out for my apron... I had to giggle when I realized that I put the pattern upside down on my fabric so now my chickens are dangling by their feet!  LOL  I did manage to finish making the  ties and the neck piece for the apron and have everything cut out and ready to sew.   I could feel myself getting tired and the audiobook was absolutely wonderful and found it hard to concentrate on the apron.. that's probably why I cut the pattern out upside down.  LOL...  so anyway I sat down on the couch and just listened to my book... next thing you know, I am asleep.... well, I didn't know I was asleep until I woke up a couple hours later.  LOL  

After I awoke from a 2hr nap, I went back to my sewing room and figured out what I  wanted to do for my quilt back...  I didn't get a picture of that....  :(   I would love to cheat and say I finished it last night, but truth be known I didn't.   I finished making the quilt back this morning and now the quilt is at Diane's waiting to be quilted.  It will be gone just long enough for me to miss it and welcome it back home.

Beer and batteries just what a girl needs for a   FNSI.
The beer never got drank..I fell asleep.  lol

cutting my apron pieces
I think I need to nap before I participate so I don't mess up my cutting. Or maybe give myself an IV infusion of caffeine!

Speaking of naps.... I think I will take one now.  My brother's annual birthday bash is tonight.  Right now I am a little sleepy and I have a slight headache... a nap is just what this non-napper needs!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
