Because that's what I feel like I have today! But, alas, not the alcoholic kind! I blame the Red Bull! Last night I imbibed in a Red Bull, and got busy with lots of sewing!
I didn't finish the quilt last night, but I DID sit up knitting until 3 AM! And then I MADE myself go to bed. Today...I pay the price. A woman cannot survive on 4 hours of sleep...at least not THIS woman! LOL
Up before 7 to roust the teenager up and out the door, I sat with the pedal to the metal and a cup of coffee in my hand, trying to function. I functioned well enough to finish the French Country Coverlet this morning!
I worked from a pattern in the book Great Patchwork Collection from BH&G
It was one of the first books I added to my quilt library.
This was the first quilt I made from the book...and my first bed-sized quilt!
It's still a favorite, and currently on the bed!
But this one always caught my eye too.
I loved the check fabric and the impact from the positive/negative blocks. And so, the inspiration for my French Country Coverlet.
I'll have to get proper pics another time. This beauty is HUGE....I have no space inside large enough to spread it out....and it's rather muddy outside! So if nothing else, I'll share a pic when it's quilted and on the bed. I love the peasant feel to it....with the flecky muslin...the faded red in that yummy French General print. I'll enjoy this one on the bed!
And now, I continue to deal with this Red Bull hangover. Once I finished the quilt, I didn't do much else for the entire day. Even a nap didn't help. I'll be retiring early this evening! But first...I'll see if the Ben & Jerry's will cure what ails me! ;o)
