Life as Usual

NOT.  I sure wish it were life as usual around here. I have a case of insomnia getting increasingly worse. An hour or two of sleep at night makes it difficult to function during the day. I've always had trouble falling asleep and didn't call it insomnia cause I always felt rested the next day.  That 's not the case now. So I got little quilting done again.  I did get 30 friendship-stars finished. Now to decide what to do with them. Isn't that always my problem. I've narrowed my choices a bit already by adding the dark triangles to all the blocks. And I decided not to go with scrappy sashing, IF I use sashing.  I like all my options, but one I am not showing that I like is to use them for a border.  Of course, I'd have to decide on the  blocks they would border and then make them.  What do you think?

I've not done too much quilting in the studio either. I've been so frustrated with my longarm quilting  that I ordered the new Edgerider Wheels for the machine. Nothing wrong with upgrading the equipment. They are so new (to the company) that they aren't really even advertising them yet and they are selling like hotcakes.  There is a 2-4 week backlog. I can hardly wait.

I need to clean out the closet again. This time I need to get all the nooks and cranny's in the room too. Dragging everything out is a scary prospect, but it is usually inspiring.  Sounds like fun to me.

I really like the sashing and cornerstones you show. Hope your sleeping pattern resolves itself soon :)

I am sorry to hear about your sleep problems. Hopefully, things will be better soon. But, in the meantime, it sounds like you are getting a lot done.
