Vacation - Day 1

My mini vacation started this morning. Mr. E has arrived for his three days with Dema. He kept mommy and daddy up last night and they only had three hours of sleep. They thought he would crash this morning. So far, he's only slept 30 minutes - his normal nap time in the morning. Maybe he'll get a good nap this afternoon.

I'm trying to convince myself to go into my studio and finish my Stitcher's Angel projects and my Christmas swap projects. I find the thought of cutting fabric and sitting at the sewing machine unsettling. Sewing is something I don't want to do right now. I'd much rather play with yarn or work on a stitchery. Do you ever feel like working in one medium rather than another? How do you convince yourself to do what needs to be done?

On a happier note, one of my online groups has a Birthday FQ club. Everyone who joins is put into a group and you agree to send a birthday FQ for everyone else. The groups generally have 20 -22 members and you can join more than one group. Last fall I signed up for two groups. I asked for Moda Marbles or solid colors.

Last week my Birthday FQ package arrived and on my birthday I opened my package to find these beautiful FQs. I joined two groups and was sent 42 gorgeous FQs. I love them! I've left them sitting out in studio hoping they inspire me.
Well, Mr. E has decided he needs some Dema time so I'm off to tend to him. I'll be back with more news of my vacation.

Sweet P

Color - I just love color - those look like fun fabrics to work with too.
