Pop open the champagne!

I just completed all the samples and all the writing for my second book of machine quilting motifs for Martingale Publications!

Everything was mailed yesterday and I feel like celebrating!

I’m not sure which I’m celebrating…the new book (with 60 more motifs–including Seasons and Holidays)

or that I can free up my creative energy for other projects now!

CREATIVE ENERGY

I find that creative energy is like physical energy in that I only have so much on any given day.

While I was busy writing and making samples for my book, I found other creative projects much more difficult.

On the other hand….Maybe it was the deadline thing?

What about YOU?

What stifles YOUR creative energy?

What enhances YOUR creative energy?

Is there such a thing as creative energy?

We’d LOVE to hear!

180 Doodle Quilting Designs

Good Morning, Quilters!

I’m back at my desk (and my sewing machine) after two wonderful weeks with Baby Louis–my new grandson!  So grateful to my daughter, Claire and her husband, Andy for sharing this time with me!

When I arrived at home…a box of books!!!

Four of my doodle designs were chosen for 180 Doodle Quilting Designs by Karen Burns (Martingale)

BTW-Martingale is publishing my book of designs (in Tuesday Tutorial style with step-by-step photos) Spring, 2017!

180 Doodle Quilting DesignsThe book (printed on my favorite glossy book paper) contains designs by nine quilters including Karen Burns, Angela Walters, Christa Watson and YOU-Know-Who!!

Each design is offered in three formats:  for a square block, a triangle block and for a border.   I just know you’re going to LOVE this book!

IN OTHER BOOK NEWS….

My book is in the works–all the tutorials are stitched (I had to re-stitch every tutorial so they’d be color-coordinated.)

I’ve been working with the editors to get all the copy and captions written and next week they start taking the real photos and doing layout!!

It’s SO COOL to be published!

I’m off to the post office….mailing copies to my Mom and Sisters….

Then to my sewing machine…I can’t wait to test drive the motifs in 180 Doodle Quilting Designs!

LOTS MORE QUILTING ALL WEEK!

May YOUR day be filled with creativity!

Lori
