Mindless Midnight Madness

Having trouble sleeping again for the past week so I have been doing a little midnight sewing. I go to bed but can't sleep so I get back up watch some tv and sew some blocks. These are mindless so I don't have to put much thought in putting them together. I am paper piecing these blocks, I have the strips cut and sorted in sizes so that makes it go faster. Tearing the paper off gives me something to do with my hands as I sit down during the evenings to watch some tv.

I am now up to 100 of these 6 inch blocks. I hoping to hang in there until I make 224. If I can get that many made I will do a 14x16 setting and it should come out to something like 84x96.
I'm not in a big hurry to get this finished just work on it as I feel like it or if I can't sleep. I'm loving them so far. Hunter just got home and Richard should be home somewhere around 6:30pm. I just started supper. We are having....southern fried chicken, fresh corn on the cob, fresh garden green beans, mashed potatoes and cornbread. Hmmm....maybe this is why I am overweight! LOL!

Love the quilt so far--and the menu! Fresh veggies sound yummy. Our growing season started so late this year, the only thing I have picked so far are some lettuce, cherry tomatoes and a few very slim carrots!
