I've worked on the illustrations for some of the techniques in Lazy Days in Quiltville. As I went along, I cleaned up the text to make it simpler, hopefully more professional. And then one of my long distance friends mentioned how much she liked the text of the Letters Tutorials just as they were because it seemed like I was explaining it just to her.
That's very appealing to me - having the book really reflect my personality and Bonnie's. Hmm, could I be "ruining" the book as I try to fix it up? So from time to time I'm going to ask for some opinions, starting today.
I've got a poll over in my sidebar. Assuming money is no object, would you prefer Tonya and Bonnie's snapshots to real illustrations? Now, figure that they are better snapshots - clearer, etc - but snapshots all the same. Would that make you think the book was shoddy looking, or that much more endearing? Please to vote, but only once.
Pokey had to jump up and get involved as I was taking a photo of the current super secret quilt in progress.
I sewed for half an hour yesterday - woohoo. Knee isn't really improving, but hasn't gotten worse, which is something. I have stayed off that stupid knee (mostly) and believe me, it's been difficult. Cheri called and invited me along on a walking tour of the Marais. I really wanted to go, but the adult portion of my brain won the day. gosh darn it.
