I'm Stitching- 

but no pictures to show, since both of them are for challenges and won't be revealed until the end of the month.

I have a working design for the February Interpret This! piece, and I don't think that will change in any substantial way.  But I am struggling with one part of it.  I thought I had a solution that would work- then I started wondering, am I taking the easy way out?  Am I avoiding trying something because I'm afraid of how it might turn out?  With that little voice niggling in the back of my head, I did some drawings, and got them to scale.  We shall see.

I got more work done on the Blue challenge yesterday and today.  Part of it was using printer transfers with CitraSolv- I had problems with smearing, something that I don't remember from the first time I did this.  So far, I'm happy with how this is developing.  It may be ready for quilting by the end of the weekend.

Shannon is making dinner while I type this.  She used her birthday present, a pasta machine, for the first time today.  So we are having chicken, asparagus, and a GOOD alfredo sauce over homemade fetuccine.  Yum!  I'll leave you with a photo of dinner before I dug in!!

I've been worrying that I am taking the easy way out too--but I think after a bit of sewing today I feel better about my idea.

The meal looks good!

I had the same conversation about doing something easier too. Mine was more of a "fitting a square peg in a round hole" problem. I have concluded that although I settled on something "easier" it actually isn't but at least my mind feels better.

I was (am?) in the same place. I scrapped my idea I worked on all day yesterday in favor of something more "out there." Hope it works.

That pasta dish looks yummy.

I am glad I'm not alone in the process! I'm still vacilating, and had one ah-ha moment while lying in bed last night that may yet turn out to be the solution for me.

dinner looks yummy.
Watch that you don't saturate your cotton with Citra-solv. Too much will make it smear.
