I knew I would be busy, but...

..... I didn't realise that I wouldn't do any sewing for two whole days. So as today began to come to an end I figured I might just do a little night sewing. For those of you with young children, or who work fulltime, or both, you probably indulge in a little night sewing quite frequently. I don't often do it. I tend to make more mistakes at the end of the day so I mostly leave sewing for daylight hours. This evening I decided that the jelly roll I bought last week on a whim needed to be made up into a jelly roll race quilt. I know I had a plan for this jelly roll when I bought it (of course I did. Do I look like someone who would just buy fabric for no particular reason? Don't answer all those who know me!) but tonight that plan escapes me and I am partway through the race. (I use that term loosely here. I have never raced.) Partway through, but now it is late and my bed is calling. (Do you think most typical jelly roll racers take a nap/sleep break?) Goodnight all. I guess I will resume the race tomorrow.

I never get any sewing done when Little P is here ...

I think the term jelly roll race quilt is not a literal term and so a break is perfectly acceptable.

Cant wait to see the end product.

The colours you are using look pretty. Looking forward to see the finished quilt. Jelly Roll Raceing sounds like fun.

Cheers Pauline

It's a marathon jelly roll race :)

Hmmm...I don't do racing either....I think it's quite civilised to take a rest break from the "race"....hope you have had a chance to continue today.
