Some English Paper Piecing

Good Morning!!!  It always amazes me how a long weekend away can invigorate and inspire a person.  Now believe me, this was no amazing trip somewhere fantastic, and as a matter of fact we spent most of it in a gym watching my son play basketball, but we needed it.  Sometimes I forget that while I work from home, and I love my home, I need to leave it and get away.  Not only for new scenery, but just to realize there are lots of fun things to do and see.  It was my son's 15th birthday this weekend, and we spent it doing things he loves to do.  It never ceases to amaze me how quickly time passes, and the memories are precious.

I brought along my Floating Colours pieces...this looked like a huge number of pieces that were going to make a lot of blocks when I left with my bag of basted X's.  It doesn't look like so many now.  :)  It is a good start, but I have a ways to go needing another 92.  It was mindless stitching that I could do while still watching my son and talking to my husband.  So not only did I not miss out on anything, I have some blocks done to remember my weekend by.  I can't wait to get started on the second blocks, but I have a LOT of basting to do before then, and other projects to work on too.  I'm thinking this is one of those hopefully not too long term ones that never ends.  Guess I need to get my papers and glue out again and keep working!

The morning sun is beautiful and there is a cool breeze perfect for taking photos.  It is one of those August days we live for and long for all summer.  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
