Fourth night light complete.

Another restless sleep. I think I was so hyped up over yesterdays warm temps and I was anticipating another beautiful day today so my body and mind didn't want to waste time sleeping.
Anyway, my usual routine for insomnia is CREATING! Which is why I finished the fourth nightlight. This aqua and brown shade is not so "fussy" as the others, but I love the soothing appearance. It makes you want to yawn.....well, perhaps that is from my lack of sleep?????

The sweet little girl slumbering in the sepia photo is perfect for a night light.
Of course she is also dreaming of Spring flowers and chirping birds so I filled her dreams with silk ribbon flowers, vintage flocked flowers and a delicate pale aqua vintage butterfly with swarovski crystal eyes. The aqua and cocoa fabrics reflect her peaceful state. I trimmed the shade in a beautiful aqua and brown beaded and braided trim.

Well now I must clean up my mess and gather items to pack for my play date this afternoon. I'm not sure what I want to take.....some new books for future project project?????metal work????sewing???oh dear, this will take a while, I had better get busy. Fingers crossed for another beautiful day!


  1. That is so sweet! :) These night lights are really something special.

  2. Love your lights.. Beautiful!
    Feeling guilty, I sleep while you were busy creating...
    thanks for the inspirations.
    I do feel rested, so maybe today will be a day for a creation as well.

  8. I went back and looked at all of them. How wonderful they are, Pat. Looks like at least some of your work is still with cq. =)

  9. Soon, Pat! Soon it will be warm enough for beach combing! I wonder if your sleeplessness has something to do with the full moon coming? I experience restless nights several nights before it's full. Sometimes I toss and turn and other times I go in the studio too. When I just really want to get INTO a project, I sometimes lie in bed and my mind goes over and over how I want to make it when I get to the project and it isn't always possible to get up and do it NOW! Not enough hours in the day!
    Sleep tight tonight!

  10. Love your creations and I feel sure I need a nightlight-will wait for the right colors to come through. Thank you for your inspiration and kind words to encourage a new CQer and blogger.

  11. Hello Pat, missed you at Mind wide open. Taking a rest?
    Hard picture I thought, not very clear. Anyway, love the nightlites, I have done them and have not made any for a while. Finding them is difficult here.
    Yours are so pretty, lots of patience, and to think you can work on them in the night! I am enjoying the silk ribbon from Xmas. So soft and pretty. Thanks again for the lovely colors.
