Hello Quilters – How are you?
Things are moving along smoothly here – as I am still managing to get a bunch of things finished.
As you can see, the studio is back together. I chose to just lighten the yellow a little bit. I almost painted the studio blue – which I know I would love – but I had just made those curtains a few months ago. They were waiting in my to-do pile for about a year and a half and I really didn’t want to make new ones again. I honestly don’t like making curtains, especially when they are lined with light blocking lining. I guess I would rather repaint than make new curtains.
It’s now a much lighter, softer, creamy yellow. I like it most of the time – but I do find that it really changes with the different times of the day.
I am plugging away on my work deadlines. The latest strike-offs for “Here Fishy, Fishy” arrived for their final critique. Notes have been made and sent off for a few last changes.
Several additional quilts were finished for the new book. In addition, I ended up getting most of my photography for the book done. It’s always such a huge relief to have it done. I hadn’t intended to do it last week, but the lighting outside was perfect. It’s a good thing I did it though – as we had a blizzard warning yesterday and it’s bitterly cold today.
At least the sun is shining, which helps block out some of the sound that howling wind is making. Can you believe last year, at this same time, there was green grass when I was photographing the book projects? At this time last year we had no snow and the temps were in the 60′s. It’s a good thing too, considering how many little kids were in the book.
I did use one little kid in this years photos. Bet ya can’t guess who? My favorite prop ever
(No offense to all the other wonderful kids I’ve gotten to use as props).
Yep – Pretty delicious. I wish you could hear the sound Daddy had to make to get him smiling for the pictures though. It would have been a nice addition to my photo bloopers post.
I will be back in a few days. I am going to be part of the Moda Favorite Notions blog posts. I will be adding a few more details on my favorite notions here on my blog, in addition to what is posted on the Moda blog.
For now, it’s back to editing. . . . .
