First, the reminder: this afternoon at 3:28-3:55 pm Central Time (4:28 Eastern, 1:28 Pacific), I'll be a guest on Mark Lipinski's radio show, Creative Mojo. You can go here to listen to us live. We're going to talk about creativity and my book, Destination Creativity, and who knows what else--well, Mark may know, but I have no idea. It'll be fun, though: I met Mark several years ago at the International Quilt Festival in Houston and convinced him to let me write an article for his magazine, Quilter's Home. I can't remember exactly what it was about, but something about--duh--creativity. So it was fun when he contacted me a couple weeks ago and asked me to be a guest. I can't wait to see what we talk about, and I hope you can join us.
Then the update. I showed you the linen skirt I cut off:
Alabama Studio Sewing + Design, using the now-sleeveless t-shirt. I can't make more appliqués until I see how much of the shirt I'll need for the tank. The patterns included in the book are a true mess: all the patterns overlaid on top of each other in every size. You're supposed to photocopy it several times and cut it out, but that's not going to happen--it would require a trip to the copy shop, paying money for an oversized copy, and then STILL having all those extraneous lines from the other patterns, which would make me nuts.
So I'll make a pattern and cut out the pieces from the t-shirt and see how much I have left over for making more appliqués.
But first I have work to do--a deadline to meet and a meeting and then talking to Mark~~fun day, but busy, so I don't know if I'll actually get the pattern cut out today or not. I hope so: putting up the big table and getting in on risers is a pain in the butt, and I hope I can do all I need to on it today so I don't have to put it up tomorrow. Lazy me~~
Hope you've got something fun in store at some point in your Wednesday~~we'd love to hear about it! XO
