While I miss my kids terribly (they are off on a family vacation/raquetball tournament with their father) it does give me the opportunity to spend large hunks of time stitching uninterrupted. It meant completing two Snowballz over the weekend.
I do enjoy exploring other designing paths. My mandala series has been inspiring to me, and I always enjoy florals and working on creating garden pieces.
But I will always find such joy in the Snowballz.
