Late Nights

I've been going back in to work around 7 PM and staying until 10 or 11 PM lately.

I get a lot done, surprisingly.

Tonight I finished a hard quilt, and started to load another one on. It was at that point that I realized I didn't have the right color of purple thread! UGH!

I seriously thought I was going to be able to finish the whole quilt tonight. Instead, I have to haul my butt up to the SLC tomorrow morning to buy thread. AND I have to take the top with me because it is a weird color of purple and I don't want to buy 5 cones to have none of them work out. That would suck.

So, here's to another late night with not very much accomplished. Wish me luck for tomorrow!

I really hate when that happens! Last week at 2:00am I ran out of thread and I had to have the dress finished and shipped the next day. I had a busy day.
I once told the fabric store that they needed to be open all night so I could take care of these emergency situations. The lady laughed and said that the sad part is that the store would probably be full of customers all night long. (ya think?)
Most ladies I know sew all night. It's the only uninterrupted time we have.
A while ago, my friend's husband called me at 10:30pm to see if I had any black zippers. His wife had run out and he was trying to help her find one because her project needed to be finished the next day.
We should open an all night fabric store.

Or better yet, an all night fabric store that delivers!

I hate when I'm all ready to get something done and I don't have what I need to do it with.
