Many of my friends are spending the day with
other quilters at a local quilting event... but I
am home putting the finishing touches on the
nine quilts for my book.
I have hand sewn the bindings, sleeves, labels and
even some yoyo's on 8 of the 9 quilts in the past
month ~ 4 of them since Tuesday. It has been a long
but wonderful process and now my fingers are tired.
Since I have done nothing but work for the past
year, my studio is looking a "bit" disheveled...
I guess I will have to add " Organize the chaos
that is your studio" to the to-do list.
So the quilts will be traveling across the country
next week to spend many months at the publishers.
There are photo shoots to be done and the technical
editing begins. I will miss them, they have become
such a part of my life.
Best wishes for a Happy Worldwide Quilting Day
for those of you that are interested in this form of
artistic expression. And if you are not a quilter,
maybe you are lucky enough to snuggle up with one.
I love thinking of all the quilters I have come to know
all over the world, I wish I could see where you work,
where you shop for fabrics and your finished projects.
All the best ~ Ellen
