18 quilts! 5 quilted, 13 not quilted, NONE totally finished. But the packet is ready to be mailed to AQS. Those editors are amazing people. How they can figure out all my instructions and turn it into a book is beyond me. As I went back to edit some of those first instructions that I wrote, it was kinda mind boggling to try to figure out what I was thinking and why I wrote it like I did. I’ll bet some of those editors do a lot of head scratching trying to figure out what we were thinking and why we wrote things the way we did.
Getting the publicity photo done wasn’t easy. I thought I could use the same one I’d used in the first book but then I realized it will be over 4 years old when the book comes out and they ask for current photos. I checked around town and there was no one would could get me a photo on a CD within a day or two so Chad took some photos yesterday morning before he left. Chad’s idea of taking photos is to see how many snapshots he can get in one minute and be done with it. This is NOT the one we’re using!
Not using this one either!
There are about 80 more that we’re not using. Want to see all 80 of them? I thought not!
I believe this is the one we’re using. Double chin and all. If I could figure out how to work Photoshop, I’d get rid of a bunch of pounds. But . . this is me . . warts and all! 🙂
Today I’ll be spending the day with a friend who is teaching me to cook Mexican and I’m teaching her to make socks. Thank goodness she’s a good knitter but has never tried socks. I think I’ll have an easier job teaching her to make socks than she will teaching me to cook Mexican. She is from Mexico and between my accent and her accent, we don’t always do a great job of understanding each other but we have lots of fun when we’re together. She’s leaving in May so our time together is getting short!
I’m taking a quilt and may end up doing some handwork on the binding while she’s knitting. I have no deadlines on my socks but . . there are deadlines on getting these quilts finished!
