I know, it's scary. The things that pop into a persons mind can be odd, thought provoking, funny, mean, or just plan out of this world. They come up at some strange times and the good ones usually when you have no place to jot them down to share. Mine usually hit me in the night while trying to get back to sleep after wake up call and sometimes in your sleep for some strange reason. I have all kinds of ideas on how to do something. You know, something you saw or heard on tv etc. gets your mind working overtime and you have your view on it. It makes perfect sense to you what you want to say about it and you can even see it all put down on paper. But, getting up to go down a put them down is not in my lazy demeaner, so they are all gone by morning. Tried putting a pad and pencil by the bed, but it's hard to write in the dark and hubby wouldn't appreciate the light coming on.
I know one time I was making a dress for Darla and it had on that "Nehru" (sp) type collar. For the life of me I could not understand the pattern instructions. Of course it came to me in my sleep. That time I did get up and do it. It came out perfectly, but it left me very tired that day, and with three kids to take care of. The ones that usually hit me now, at least, aren't earth shattering and won't be missed because I couldn't remember them. It's just that it can be frustrating to think of something you may like to share and it's gone in the wind.
