Yes, contrary to how I seem outloud, I am a big proponent of rest!
So a few weeks ago, when I got a call from a music director from a church asking if I would play a gig in Galveston this week, I said yes!! And then I proceeded to convince my whole family that we needed to spend a day and a half down there just playing!! With me playing a gig in the middle of it for some extra "pay for the vacation" money! Love that!
there was a little (okay, a LOT) of pillow fighting…
a little putt-putt…
…in which we discovered that cream sunscreen was much better than spray…just check out my back and Cora's back…'nuf said!
some seafood outside on the patio with the people you love!
(okay, I don't eat seafood, but I was with people I love!!)
some kite flying…
and much needed time on the beach…
It was the best to have Mr Gorgeous take the day off and relax with us!!
These times of respite are well worth the work they take to pull off…and the result is having that extra umph to start your new projects, to inspire you to a new level of creativity, to give you hope that you, too, can conquer your next mountain!!
Here are few of my next projects…So excited!!!
Sweet Lion Baby quilt for a new baby boy names Leo due any day now!! (yes, this will be done by Sunday!!)
Seaside Rose quilt that has been on the back burner for years!! It's perfect for the guest room! I may steal it for my room, though. Still in love with this fabric!!
I rearranged a bunch of stuff last week in my closet, and I found these two quilt kits. They are exactly what I LOVE!! So I'm going to make them this summer! The Cowboy Days quilt will take a while, but I think it's going to be awesome when done!!
btw, stay tuned for a big announcement tomorrow here on the BLOG! :) you will love all of the quilty fun!
I pray your summer is filled with rest, relaxation, and creative excitement!!
