Went to breakfast with girlfriends... got my nails done today... worked on fabric postcards for an exchange on the yahoo group postcardpizzazz... prepped for class tomorrow - mostly gathering things I need to take with me... changed ink cartridges in my printer (they seem to run out so fast - maybe I make too many color copies?)... generally had a quiet day, with a little productivity. At least I feel like the day wasn't wasted.
Tomorrow I have class. Maybe I will get the binding on my Jellicle Moon quilt done - we'll see, I still have 2 sides to go. I wish I could work on it at home, but there's just too much cat hair around here. I love going to class, everyone is so talented and productive and our show and tell is always a lot of fun to watch.
The teacher of the class and I have collaborated on a wonderful quilt pattern (I designed the center, she designed the border). We are planning to submit it to a magazine in the hopes it will be accepted for publication. That would be so awesome. If not a magazine, maybe we can self-publish it as a pattern for sale. Who knows? This is the quilt with my boring border on it - Mary designed a wonderful pieced border that perfectly complements the quilt. Together I think they are a wonderful marketable design. I will try to get a picture of her quilt with the pieced border tomorrow.
I wish the colors on this were closer to the original, but the idea is there, the 'black' inner border is actually a beautiful rich green.
More to share tomorrow I hope.
