I just had to paint something today–it’s been so long. I’ve been chained to my long arm for weeks it seems. But I’m leaving on a trip today and am taking my paints. No sewing! That really surprises my Mom. Usually when I go to visit her, I bring all sorts of piecing projects I want to finish. I think she feels neglected. I promised this would be a no sewing trip. I hope she doesn’t mind if I paint all day.
