While we went and visited my mom, Mark went to New York for a whirlwind weekend of photography, concerts, and friends. He came home exhausted, but also super inspired to work on more photography things. I love to see him amped about his creative endeavors and look forward to seeing what he makes of it. He brought home presents for all of us (hello, Strand book tote), including this amazing Doodle New York book for Mia. She has been working in it every night since. She loves the prompts and has been asking a lot about New York. She even wanted to use her computer to research certain things in the book. It's the most connected I've seen her become to one of our trips.
I still haven't finished last week's Project Life. I'm close. I'm finding that I have a ton of pictures and need to really edit myself. I wanted to show you that I have been crafty, though. First, before I left I finished the last Solstice Star square. Now I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with them. I didn't plan ahead well enough so that they all "match." Faith showed some great quilt options on her blog, but I can't really see them all going together. For now they'll go in the ongoing projects pile until something comes to me. Or, I get more Tula Pink fabric and redo some of the squares. You can read more about the series on Fresh Lemons Quilts.
What are you reading or working on today? I'd love to hear some more recommendations for not too deep books to read!!
