Sewing at 2am

Last night I couldn't sleep. My mind was thinking about all the things still in my house, the things I need to do before removalists come today, the things I don't want to keep but haven't been able to even give away.

I tried reading to take my mind off everything, but found myself reading a page several times to try and understand it. I was reading the words, but my mind wasn't concentrating on the book.

Eventually I got up and went to my sewing machine, and made another "Wild & Goosey" block section:

Just one was enough. The gentle process of choosing a fabric, stitching it into place, trimming the seam, then choosing the next fabric, took my mind off everything else that had been churning around. The loungeroom clock struck 2 as I stitched the last seam, and I was able to go back to bed and fall asleep.


  1. Hope the move went well. Almost finished unpacking here.

  2. Nothing like some soothing piecing. I'm sure the move will go well.
