Pleeeeeeease turn the light out

It all started last night around 8.30 when hubs and I were comfortably settled in front of tv that we became aware of noise outside the front of our house.    Upon investigation we found that the street was busy with machinery, workers and road repairs being carried out.

The large machine that was ripping up the existing bitumen worked up until 1 am and then all of a sudden everything went quiet - much to our relief - until this happened right opposite the front  our house.  

Well that was the end of hoping to get any sleep as the light was not turned off until 3.30 am.  and a very noisy small steam roller moved up and down levelling down the new bitumen.     Needless to say that hubs and I are a bit zombie like today.    

Somehow the machinery used during the night looks quiet during the day as it sat idle on the side of the road.

My good intentions of trying to achieve a fair bit of quilting tonight did not eventuate as I found that I could not concentrate for too long on going around in small circles with white thread on a neutral background.  I am going to have an early night and try to catch up on my lost sleep.  

Thanks Wendy for organising another fun FNSI.  I hope those who took part achieved more than I did.   

Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all

As an insomniac of many decades I understand your lack of focus. I hope you manage to get some much needed sleep. Works are beginning here for a couple of months with night works from 8.30pm until around 7am. Not happy!

Well that sounded like a not-so-very restful night for you both! I imagine the silence was deafening once the machinery stopped. Hope you got some much-needed sleep last night!
