3 blogs in almost as many days! Tomorrow is back to reality and back to school. There are no days off until the 24th – theoretically I should have even more time to get things done – we’ll see. Yesterday we went and tagged a Christmas tree to chop down in a few weeks and then put up our mini Christmas village in the dining room. This morning we even woke to a light coating of snow – the season has begun!
Regarding that mini-book… I have worked up a tablerunner (just needs to be quilted) and a wall hanging using the same fabrics, but arranged in different ways. It’s cool to see how fabrics placed in different patches makes the design look a lot different. Since I now have more pages to work with I am hoping to include a blank layout big enough so that quilters can color their own designs. I work with EQ6 (which I absolutely love!) but for those of you who prefer colored pencils/markers (I still enjoy that too when I don’t have access to a computer) I think it would be fun and creative to come up wth your own design. The possibilities are endless. Probably the only challenging part for many quilters would be then to figure out the yardages required if you were making a larger size quilt. I’d be happy to help anyone with that dilemna.
I am also working on getting the e-commerce part of the site up and running (I ran into technical difficulties a couple of weeks ago.) When that happens, I will have kits available with the Christmas fabric. Of course, I’ve missed the window for anyone wanting to get a quilt done for Christmas. Oh well – there’s always next Christmas – fortunatley fabric doesn’t go bad! Until I get the mini-book finished (this month – cross your fingers) if anyone is interested in a pattern for just the larger sizes, I do have a few copies. Please E-mail me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy last day of Novemeber!
