A sleeping weekend or not.

After a very exhausting week at work I felt so tired and just wanted to sleep all day long. And I almost did yesterday. So not in the mood for entering my sewingroom. I just relaxed in my chair with a quilt and a cat on my lap, just watching tv and stitching.........and NOT sleeping. Have you ever been so tired that you cannot sleep. I wish I could just do like the cats, curl up in the sofa and just sleeeeeeeeeeeep.

But after a long good sleep tonight I was so in mood for being in my sewing room.
I installed myself with projects, my computer watching old movies and some pepsi max. And of course Frida cat and Rusken joined me in there. We spendt several hours there today and it was so fun being back on sewing again.

I have made 3 rug mugs today, but can't show them to you yet. I am entering them in Madame Samm's mug rug contest. I will sew down the binding this evening and then post the photos to Madame Samm who will put them on her flicker album. Hope you later will go there and vote for the one you fancy the most. The entering ends at feb 4th and the judging can begin.

Rusken was asking me why I make so small mug rugs........they are tooooooooo small to sleep well on. So I have to make him his special quilt.

This week I have done some stitchery. To tired to do anything else, stitchery in front of the tv was a good thing. I have finished two LIB blocks, stitching on the third, and I have prepared 8 more blocks. I like to have blocks ready to just grab "on the go".

A little bit more stitched on my Angel among us quilt, but I did not manage to finish the blocks as I had planned on my focus list.

Nothing done on my Rustic Christmas heart table runner.

But I did some quilting on my Leannes House. One side done, three to go. This is nice work to do watching tv. And I am eager to finish this. I have told myself this quilt is going up on my wall instead of the christmas quilt that is hanging there, so I better hurry up getting it finished.

I did finish quilting and applique on this table runner. Just sewing down the binding left. Seems like I have a lot of bindings to sew down now. Boooooooooring :)

I will have the same focus on projects this week as the previous one. And I hope I will not be so tired after work the coming week. It takes time coming back to daily routines after a long Christmas vacation.

Saying for today:

In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods;
they have not forgotten this.

Du verden for en flott blogg du har. Utrolig mye fint du lager, virkelig til god inspirasjon for oss andre.
En aldeles nyyyyydelig katt, hvis jeg ikke tar helt feil er en abyssiner. Er det ikke fantastisk å ha slike gode hjelpere og ikke minst modeller. Så fort man legger ned en quilt for å ta bilde, er de der med en gang og må ligge oppå:-)
Har selv to Maine Coon og de er ivrige "prøvere" av alle quiltene mine.
Tusen takkf or titten.

Det er lov å ta det med ro av og til og ikke gjøre noen ting. Er sikker på at du hentet mye enerig på syromet i dag :o) Lykke til med mug rug konkuranse.

I've been there too, May Britt.
I've found stitching helps as it stops my brain telling me off for not going to sleep. Animals are much more sensible...they just go to sleep instead of getting over-tired :)
Hugs, Sharon

You sure have been busy, and with a lot of lovely things to show for it :-)

Our local paper had a news article that described going back to work after the long Christmas/New Year break as akin to jet lag. I don't think you were alone in feeling tired.
I love your sewing room - so organised and neat. It looks very inviting. All the best for 2011.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

I hate when I can't sleep. The more tired I am, the harder it is to get a good rest.

I adore all of your projects. I wish I could hand quilt like you do. Fabulous!

Looks like lots of stitching going on at your place, May Britt. Hope you've been able to catch up on some rest as well as enjoy some stitching time with your furry friends. Love how your Leanne's House quilt is coming together! Happy stitching - Bear Hugs! KRIS

I love to look at your Life is Beautiful blocks. I just finished the quilt last week.

Helt klart lov å ta det litt rolig, du får uansett gjort masse og her ser det veldig lovende ut! Fin pusekatt, det er koselig å ha selskap.
Godt nytt år om jeg ikke har sagt det! Nå er hukommelsen mer som en grøt, men gode ønsker er vel ikke det verste å doble? Klem

Hi May... Boy, We have all been there... So. tired and can't sleep or get out of your own way... You deserve a day of rest and some lap work with a good movie on... You must of had a cat on your lap when your were doing your hand work... I always have a cat or two on my lap when I do hand work... They seem to ease the sole... I just love all the projects you are working on...They are so beautiful and you do such lovely work... :)

Hei, hei May Britt.

Tror ikke du er alene om å ha hatt en slik helg. Lørdagen her var også veldig stille. Det å komme igang etter jul tok på.

Sykdom herjer jo landet om dagen også, så dersom kroppen sier så tydelig nei er det like greit å bare la den få det den trenger - slik du gjorde ♥

Godt søndagen tok seg opp på den kreative siden da. Det pleier jo å være energigivende :O)

Har sett mange slike mug rugs rund her i blogland, veldig fine :O) kanskje noe å prøve..... Lykke til med konkurransen♥

Ønsker deg en riktig god mandagskveld!!

klem fra Yvonne

Hei May Britt.
Mug Rugs passet veldig godt til stoffene i abonnementet. Fikk se en av Hanne på Kaffelappen og da var veien kort til sybordet. Kanskje det blir flere utover våren.

It is the shortage of daylight for all of us I think, I feel tired too. But you still have done a lot of stitching!

Liven said...

Med en liten pause kommer energien tilbake......jeg har sydd "inspirasjonshjerte" - legger ut bilde nå :-)
1000takk - du vil følge meg i hverdagen!
Klem!
