There’s lots of irons in my fire as far as things we’re working on.
Friday and Saturday Kelli came over and we sat down and pow-wowed. Since getting everything in for the book we finished up a few different projects and then seemed to flounder a bit. We did a couple other deadline projects…we finished up a few odds and ends projects each of us had but we both felt very unfocused. Having a strategy meeting was just what we needed.
It seems that I have become prolific with designing quilts. We had a stack of about 25-30 designs that I had all done in the last 4 months or so. We printed them and then we started sorting them…..
We put some on hold..those were the designs that needed work or a different border. We put some in a pile that we hope to sew up and offer as free patterns. We put some in a pile that we’d like to make up and give single pattern making a try. We put some in a pile with hopes of starting another book. There are so many decisions to make and directions to go.
By the end of the session we each had a to do list….we each felt a little more focused. Mainly we each found a new appreciation for the other. There are so many things that I don’t care to do that Kelli takes care of. There are lots of things that I do that Kelli doesn’t care to do. We make a good team.
I am off to work on my to do list. Thankfully there is some sewing involved in it….Oh and just for curiosity…What do you prefer that designers offer individual patterns or quilting books??
