I forgot to mention that I came home last Sunday night. But I've bin very busy since and will be for..... well the rest of the summer I guess.
I started making these table mats as a wedding present before I went to Reykjavik. I had made 12 paper pieced flowers and cut out all the fabric needed except the binding which I had to buy in the city. I thought it would be a piece of cake to finish it at my moms. Not so. Took me days and that was with my moms help. So I did not do half of what I'd intended to do, like taking walks, visiting friends, going to movies and so on. But it was worth it. I really liked how the table mats turned out. (The table they sit on is a tiny table since the WW2, I'm told the Brits had one for each soldier during their stay here in Iceland)
I got confirmed what I already knew, that I'm absolutely not a PP person. Me and the ripper were "pals" while paper piecing the flowers. I usually have such a good eye for forms so it's a puzzle to me why I cant seem to find the right size of a fabric for each number. Or to make it fit properly. Or to..... Lol. I've decided that it would be best for me to leave this kind of sewing alone. But.... I did not let this bother me as I was determent to let only good thoughts follow the mats to the happy couple.
About the sleep apnea, I got a thing to put in my mouth while I sleep that keeps my chin from falling back. The first night was not very easy but I've slept well since and feel much more refreshed when I wake up than I've felt in years. And I'm not tired and sleepy all the time.
That is just so great.
