Quilt With Us

Pardon me for not saying Good Morning, but I find nothing good about getting up at 3 am. The other half is working over time for a while, or until the truck drivers at his company stop wrecking trailers, therefore we get up at this hour.
I've been reading the posts that everyone has put up, some with humor, some with: yep I've done that and as for the rotary cutter, yep I've done that too although not as seriously.
Thoughs of you who have read about my yorkie puppies, I've been told that we are going to keep the last girl I have. She has been named Pearl. I prefer "Black" Pearl. This morning she has learned how to bark at mom and dad. She is a handful and very entertaining.
Yesterday on my day off, I decided to forget the house and the things that I should be doing and just worked on a quilt. I've been working on one for the past month off and on. I needed to get a little bit more material to finish off the quilt. I came home washed said material and added starch and started cutting away. Normally I would have quit for the day but I figured what the heck, I started sewing the pieces together. The next thing I knew it was afternoon and I hadn't even started dinner (we eat early sence we get up so early). Having thown something in the oven, I went back to working on the quilt. It was then that I realized that I had sewed up all the pieces that I had cut and was back to the part of the quilt that I wasn't enjoying. I was paper piecing a block because of the angles in it. I decided to work it from a different angle. The next thing I knew it was 9:30pm. All in all yesterday for me was a good day. So having said my piece for this morning, I am off to work.
PS the coffe is ready enjoy your day.

I'm glad you are going to keep Pearl - sounds like she has won your heart already.
What a great day off you had. Good for you!
Hope the work stuff gets straightened out soon so you don't have to keep getting up at 3am - oh my. My DH gets up at 4:30 and that is too early for me!
You have a great day, too!

It's good to have a day to get lost in quilting.
