More day, less sleep!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I don't know about you but this whole Daylight Savings switch over has got me bushed. My eyes are stinging, I've been chugging coffee like it's gasoline for an empty car. Seriously, I'm just trying to get through this day...

I love you daylight and the fact that I no longer have to drive home in the dark... And I know that with the longer days that means we're just one more step closer to spring! But why oh why do you have to rob me of that one extra hour of sleep?! I'm actually shocked that I'm feeling this so much. I don't remember losing that one hour of sleep hitting me like truck so much ever before!!!! Gahhhhhhhhh. Here's hoping I can trick my body into thinking all's normal tomorrow!

This past week, before the time change went and played havoc with my internal clock, I made lots of progress on my next quilty project. As you may already know, in my last post I announced the opening of my Etsy shop The Wayward Needle :) This quilt is destined to be another addition very shortly if all goes well!

I spent 2 nights last week sewing together the backing fabric and basting this beauty. I haven't quite decided yet but I may just scallop the boarders. The colours, while from the same collection as my last quilt, are much more dainty. I think french country, spring mornings and Easter eggs when I look at it. So I think scalloping the boarder may just be the way to go on this one! 

Let me know what you think!

Ciao for now :)



  1. It's so pretty! I love the colors. Can't wait to see what else you've got planned for your Etsy store! :D

  2. I don't like time changes at all. I try to adjust as quickly as possible, but I'm still feeling it. At least my little guy slept in a bit this week.

    The new quilt is absolutely lovely!

  3. It's very pretty! The colours are wonderful.

  4. Your quilt is beautiful. I love the colors too. Wow a scalloped edge will look amazing but have no idea how to make one:)
    love Annette

  5. You are amazing Melissa! Another quilt! So pretty too! I didn't like the change in time either but I'm used to it now. It's nice to wake up with some light out and come home in the light too!! Hugs!
