Lack of Zzzzzzz's

Two nights with little sleep have left me in a fog today. My head feels as though it is wrapped in white wool. It's very annoying because I wanted to try these:

out today. I'm supposed to be putting together a shop sample for the upcoming shop hop. The actual blocks had been done a while ago (not by me!), but no one has had the time to finish the sashing and borders. And truthfully, sashing and borders didn't sound so bad until I had a look at the pattern. It calls for about a million half-square triangles dancing around the whole quilt, made with these Thangles.

They are popular around here right now; everyone raves about how accurately you can sew HST's with them. I am looking forward to giving them a try, but not today. I think I'm going to need a clearer head to try a new technique.

Meanwhile I think I'll just pop in a movie and veg out. We got a couple of Val Lewton DVD's from Netflix that are calling my name...

Lucky you, those thangles are fairly brainless - I cut my stips a bit wider & do more trimming, but I don't have to be so careful with placing the thangle paper.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I don't think I had visited yours before. I am on summer vacation from a college I wowrk at. It sure feels good! I'll be visiting more.
