I feel a book coming on


Yes, I've got enough original designs started that I could do another pattern book. 

In the last few days I spent many hours choosing background color, thread colors, shuttle color, and lighting conditions for a series of "how-to" photos for that section of the book. Sample is photo at left. Not great, but it'll have to do. If I lose momentum with this big project, I'll lose interest and it won't get done at all.

Most likely self-publish, that way I can sell the digital file. But, I gotta admit that it was cool seeing my Tatted Jewelry book on the shelves at Hobby Lobby!

Thanks! At this stage I've already got 6 pages with writing and pictures, but still haven't reached the actual patterns yet... I'd forgotten how much crazy detail goes into books...sigh.

That's exciting. I too thought it was great to see your book in hobby lobby and get real encouraged every time I go in and the rack is empty--then return the following week to see it restocked. I love your designs.

You may like to know that I bought your Tatted Jewelry book in Books Kinokuniya, the biggest bookstore in Singapore! I've been hesitating whether to buy the rest of your books in PDF form, or pay more for the hard copies, with extra for the postage.

LOVE the earrings! So happy to hear that you're working on another book because I think I've purchased almost all of your previous ones LoL! Perhaps Annie's will invite you back for another publication. They definitely have MY vote :)

Hi Marilee: YESTERDAY, I saw your tatting book at Hobby Lobby. I hadn't seen it on the display rack until yesterday. Congrats : )
