Over the past couple of weeks I have been working hard to complete my book “Ten Skill-Building Projects for Bernina V7 Effectiveness”. I have all but two of the eleven chapters and accompanying project designs complete and have only the two hardest ones left. I also have several informative appendixes partly written. I will have to test everything, working through the book and making any corrections.
I also have been “painting” horse appliques and preparing a package for each horse that will include instructions for printing and appliqueing and patterns for stitching the tails and manes. I have two horse designs ready to test and am making progress on learning the things I need to consider for building each applique package. I will have to test everything for these too.
I have not, however, been working on a quilt. I miss it. But this is a temporary situation. My plan is that after I finish the first book manuscript I will set up a weekly schedule that will divide my time equally between writing, embroidery and applique designs, and quilting so I can still make several new show quilts every year. Eventually I will finish the writing too.
It’s all wonderfully creative work though, sew I’m still having fun.
Sew happy everyone!
