Friday Night Sew-In

I signed up to be part of the February 19 Friday Night Sew-In that Heidi and Bobbi are hosting. (Click on the brown button in my side bar for more info.) The idea is to commit to working on any project that night and then sometime on Saturday, post a photo of your project. On Sunday, all the participants will be entered in a giveaway!

The question for me is, how late can I stay up without sewing through my finger or making some really bad mistakes on my project?!? Several years ago, I became a morning person and am sometimes awake as early as 3:30 AM!!! That means I'm usually in bed around 9 PM and asleep shortly thereafter. I don't particularly care for this schedule but I usually can't go back to sleep if I wake up in the middle of the night so I might as well get up. Besides, once the cat senses that I'm awake he MUST be fed.

Waking up so early does have a few advantages. The house is quiet, I make coffee, feed the cat and spend time on the internet. This morning, our internet connection was down so I spent about an hour hand quilting.

So while all the other Sew-In participants will just be warming up to stitch or do whatever, I'll be ready for bed! Sigh. This could be really embarrassing if I have to explain that I didn't get much done because I fell asleep at the sewing machine!
