We all have those sleepless nights, so I decided to start on my small quilt challenge  for May.  As I was chain-stitching the four-patches, I ran out of thread....but did not realize it until there was a little pile of squares sitting there....unstitched!   And I thought I was making such good use of a sleeples night!  
I think this is going to be a fun little quilt, especially since I love stars.

Boy, that's when you wish you had one of those fancy sewing machines that would give you a warning when you out of bobbin! I have done that very thing, though, as a matter of fact, Sunday night. I sure like your little star, though, what a sweet project!

I just purchased that book. I am anxious for summer to I can start one. I can relate to both the sleepless nights and the running out of thread! I hope today will be better.

Still more fun than tossing and turning in bed. Still hoping to make this May project. Maybe my problem is that I sleep too much and no productivity.

I hate those sleepless nights and should just get up and sew like you...but then I think how tired I'll be the next day. I have a machine that tells me low bobbin however it quit working after I took machine in for good cleaning, I swear he broke it so I don't want to go back. Now I'm back to guessing and trying to listen for empty bobbin.

As if a sleepless night wasn't bad enough!
This is going to be a great little quilt. I love that pattern!

Don't you HATE it when that happens? My old sewing machine used to have a flashing light to alert me when the thread got low - sure do miss that feature! LOL

Lynda said...

Oh that happens to me sometimes too. My machine is supposed to beep when the bobbin is low but it doesn't work anymore. A little frustrating especially on a sleepless night! Those little stars are darling and what a great way to use up scraps.

Every woman understands those sleepless nights. I am also sewing the monthly quilting projects using Kathleen Tracy's books. I was on a border crossing bus trip recently and one of the shops was Quilter's Station in Lee's Summit. Beautiful shop that has everything and in your neighborhood. How lucky are you.
