Piecemeal Piecework

It's said that if you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. Well, this busy person is just too tired to do much of anything these days. I find this extremely frustrating because I really want to spend my evenings sewing, but now that I'm getting up an hour earlier than I used to, I'm exhausted at day's end. Granted, it's my choice to start my work day earlier. It means that I'm not scrambling to get to daycare on time to get Levi. He and I are now able to play for fifteen minutes before the dinner, bath, bed routine, which is time I am loving (and he is too!). But the downside is less energy for my creative endeavors.

My "solution" is to do things in spurts. Half an hour here, forty-five minutes there, and eventually things will get accomplished. Tuesday night I drew stitch lines for the last batch of HSTs for my Flora quilt:
This evening I cut and stitched the beginnings of a wonky zig zag block for this month's We Bee Learning bee's host:
And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to bed. Yes, at 9:15 p.m.  Mama needs her sleep.


  1. 9:15 bedtime is hard to achieve, but you really feel the benefits in the morning... hope you slept well!

  2. I've been going to bed early due to DH's having to get up crazy early for his commute. I'm trying to get used to it. I feel like I can get more done at night - but really, that's just not true. LOL What I need to do is start staying up when I wake up in the morning!
