Good Morning!

Yesterday I had to come home from mass and grab a nap.  The night before I got less than an hours sleep.  The wind was blowing hard and noise from various things around the house was enough to keep me awake!  Hate when I can't sleep. 
I got my next two colors cut for another swoon block but need to cut the white background and put them together.  I had to change my blade in my rotary cutter and believe it or not, it took me 40 minutes to do that!  Good night.  But on little to no sleep, so that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.  :)

I stopped quilting and went to visit a friend and didn't get home until well after dark and then I ate a sandwich and fell into bed and went to sleep by 8:30... and was awake by 1am.  And then went back to bed about 4.  I really would love to have a good nights sleep soon.  Remember how when we were teenagers we could sleep for hours and hours and it practically took a bomb to wake us up?  I want to sleep like that again, just one night a week!  My mom used to complain about how as she got older it was harder and harder to sleep.  I'm becoming my mother... YIKES! 

So today I plan on quilting.  I need to sew, but I hesitate to do that when I'm sleep deprived, and that's how I feel right now.  So today will be a quilting day.  I hope to accomplish 2 swoon blocks and maybe get the 4th cut out.  :)   So I'm off to feed the dogs and then do my dishes and sew sew sew on my swoon quilt.  :)

saw your comment on Judy's Rolling Along If you click on the middle site it makes a PDF to formulate any size Flying Geese [no waste style] Judy said to make it 1 1/4 X 2 1/2 finished according to the formula you add 1 1/4 to 2 1/2 and 1 1/4 to 7/8 so your squares are those sizes one 3 3/4 and four 2 1/8 I think. You might want to check my math.. hope this helps

I looked at that site, it's like trying to read Greek to me! I'm so confused that I give up and cry UNCLE. :)
