It's been almost a month since I last blogged. I really don't have any good excuses, except I keep forgetting/losing my password to login. But, I guess I have been busy promoting my soon-to-be released book (five days to be exact).
What this means is that I've been doing a lot of networking, setting up book signings and programs, etc. I never really knew how much work was involved after the initial work of writing the book.
I've also been trying to downsize mt collection of unfinished projects just sitting around. I am happy to say that my stack is getting smaller. Slowly.
I did make a new baby quilt for my very good friend, Rita. I am also planning to make a matching diaper bag, but I haven't started it yet.
I am also working on making a series if small purses. I used a favorite purse pattern for the body of the bag, but made the handle extra long so that it can be worn across the body. I also substituted half of a vintage dresden plate block for the flap. Cute, isn't it? I'm making them for myself and my three friends for shopping and quilt shows. I wanted a smaller bag that went across my body for when I go to International Quilt Market in Houston at the end of October.
