Preparations For August


Yesterday Diane made the trek from her neck of the woods to mine and we did some filming for a book trailer.  I took the opportunity to take a few photos.  With just two months to go until the release of Quilting Happiness, we are both busy prepping for that day and getting everything ready.  I’ve been working on the website the last two weeks and Diane now has the fun job of editing all of our footage into a few minute trailer.  I never realized just how much time goes into a book, it’s not just the time making the projects – it’s so much more than that.  I don’t think it was always this way, but publishers do expect quite a bit from authors when it comes to publicity and marketing.  Understandably, of course.  It was nice to see all the quilts again.  Seeing them reminded me how much work I did over last spring and why I haven’t felt like doing much quilting over the last year.


The cats were oh so helpful yesterday.  Newman had to inspect every box and bag that was opened.  His specialty.  His hair is officially on all of the quilts and small projects again. 


Even Zipper, one of my two “barn” cats had to get in on the action.  I had all the quilts laid out on the back fence, and she kept running back and forth in front of them, zipping around the yard (how she got her name as a kitten).  I didn’t realize she had so much spunk in her still (she’s 16 years old now).
