I don't feel like I've had much of a productive week since the last post. My hip's been sore, and pain + narcolepsy = utter uselessness... It started off not too bad. I had a couple of days of doing stuff, which was great. Got my Single Girl ring sections done, and made a start on the scary business of Sewing Curves...

Good old seam ripper came out to play rather a lot. I got the first ring done though.
Then I had a really frustrating day of having energy and being awake, but seriously the attention span of a gnat, so I couldn't stick at anything for more than 5 minutes without starting something else and forgetting what I was doing. Everywhere I turned I came across something I'd started doing and forgotten about! Not much sewing done that day, but lots of little bits of housework got done so not all bad.
After a day of not being able to stay put for long, my hip was killing me (probably should still have been resting it to be honest but I kept getting twitchy - another lovely narcolepsy side effect - so I couldn't stay still). Anyway. Cant do pain with out falling asleep, so there followed a few days of falling asleep all the bloody time. Which is depressing. Breakfast, fall asleep. Cup of tea, fall asleep. Lunch, fall asleep. Go to bathroom, fall asleep. Cup of tea, fall asleep. Dinner, fall asleep. Put laptop on, fall asleep. Cup of tea, fall asleep. Go to bathroom, fall asleep. Sit down and put telly on, fall asleep. Go to bed, fall asleep. Then in bed its sleep but waking up about 20 times... Can you see how a few days of that can get a girl down? 3 days of never getting to drink my cup of tea whilst its still warm... Fell asleep in the middle of my dinner twice. That's the reason why, when on my own, I tend to like my dinner in a bowl, sitting on the sofa... Total slob I know, but at least that way when I doze off in the middle of it nothing spills and my face doesn't land in it!
I did have a reasonably good weekend though, and I got my Single Girl quilt top done.

Confession time. This wasn't meant to be an entirely Single Girl related post. I had a lovely wee project in mind to do today, and put in the blog. Needless to say it didn't get done. You see, I needed a specific piece of fabric. I tried to find said piece of fabric. I fell asleep. When I woke up I found that I'd perhaps been a little over zealous in my searching... basically I got stuck in the cupboard. Sewing in a cupboard is kinda handy for me, I sit at the back of the cupboard on my wee swivel stool, and everything is more or less within reach. I can get every stash box out to look through without leaving my seat. Kind of have to put it all away again to be able to leave my seat actually, never mind get to the door... Reminded me of when I was wee and I'd been in the bathroom too long, my dad would stand outside the door singing "oh dear, what can the matter be, poor wee Sarah's stuck in the lavatory...." Still, a few hours and a few naps later and I now have my fabric all wonderfully organised...although I do still have that annoying wee song going through my head. As for the wee project, I'll have to try again tomorrow.
Time for a wee bit of a goal to aim for. I aim to post again Wednesday night, having done said wee project, and finished the quilt I started with mum. Need to get it finished now, I've only gone and signed up for another Quilt-a-long. (shouldn't that really be Quilt Along? I don't know, but its abbreviation is QAL which I'll be using from now on...) Its with Lynne at Lilys Quilts and judging by the flikr feed its going to be a great laugh. Its going to be another big one, (I'm so out of my comfort zone when its not 45x60!) but this one gets quilted as you go, so it'll provide me with the chance to get a bit more adventurous with my machine quilting! And its more circles, which I clearly need practice on...
