Another Sleepless Night

I have trouble sleeping most nights, and then there are those nights when I just don't go to bed. This was one of the latter...I get busy with something and then it's morning. I have this beautiful image from The Graphics Fairy that I just had to do something with. So, I made a journal.

I printed the image onto a fabric transfer sheet and ironed it onto a piece of fabric. This is the first project in quite awhile that I've used my sewing machine for. It took me a minute to remember how to thread it. ;)


This was a fun project...I think I will definitely make more of these...you know what they say about practice.
I even got some scrapbooking done while I wasn't wasting time sleeping.
It's Friday....payday! I need to go buy our traditional chocolate marshmallow Easter eggs. I haven't done anything yet to get ready for Easter, and we're having our dinner tomorrow. I'm off to the store.
Have a great day!
Disclaimer: If anything in this post doesn't make sense...remember, I haven't slept.

What a fun project, and it turned out so great! These days have been so busy, the only way I would get to go in my craft room would be to stay up all night. Hmmm, tempting!!

Debi~ I wanted to thank you for your kind words and prayers for my brothers family. I just found out he is on his way home from the middle east and will arrive by dinner tomorrow. Your project turned out so lovely. I love to create all night but can't do it very often.

Wow, this is beautiful Debi, and on no sleep too? I don't know how you can go all night without sleep, I can't function without sleep. Hope you had a nap today at least :)
Happy Easter to you and your family!

I'm having trouble sleeping lately too. I think it is, for me, because I've got so much to do right now and just have to get up and get at it. Now, if I can just learn to be as creative when I can't sleep as you are. This is soooooo beautiful. I've never printed on fabric and would love to learn how. Are there instructions somewhere that would help me? ♥
