Sewing on hexies most of the night

It's 4:30am and so far I have been up all night.  I have to get Richard up in 15 minutes for work so I thought I would do a quick post.  Too tired to do much else, I've set here on the couch, watching Netflix and working on my hexies.  
 I know it is hard to tell much about them on top of this quilt but I was too tired to move them elsewhere.  :)  I now have 120 of these sewn together but still need a few hundred more to get the size of quilt that I want. 
 I needed a change of pace so I decided to start sewing what I have into sets of 2.  I didn't get a photo of that but I will. 
 Hopefully today I can cut out Step 2 of the mystery quilt while everyone is working.  I have all of Step 1 finished and I would love to try to keep up with the steps as they are released.

 I'm going through another one of my sleepless spells.  :(  Everyone around here is on a different schedule right now and that messes me up.  I know that Andrew can get himself up for work but as a mom, I want to make sure he gets up and has something to eat before he goes to work.  Soon he will be off of these 12 hour shifts everyday.  Sunday will be 28 days straight that he has worked 12 hour shifts...except he was off for Thanksgiving.  Richard gets up at 4:45am for work so I usually just stay up after Andrew leaves as I would only have a few minutes to lay down.  Then Hunter gets up at 6am for school.  After he leaves I do sometimes take a nap for an hour or two so I am usually running on 2-3 hours of sleep a day. 

Hunter and I did get our tree up but I snapped this photo of it a little bit ago and it is so blurry that you can't tell much about it.  I will try to get a better pic of it later today. 
 That's all for now.....I have to go press Richard's scrubs for work today.  I should have already had that done but I forgot.  :(

Kristie - yikes - you need more sleep that that to function! The hexies are looking great... glad you can work on something while sleep eludes you. Hope the step 2 goes well for you.

Oh.girl! How are you even coherent? I wouldn't be able to function with 2-3 hrs of sleep! Here's hoping you're able to get some sleep soon. In the meantime, you've got a really pretty project to keep you company!
