The patterns already done are used for current classes for the technique; and I did create two other small sets (hand drawn without Illustrator work) for the HGTV Group classes. Working on crazy quilt designs lead me to create my own workbook...which meant that I had to learn Illustrator (which my husband always dealt with before).
I am so glad to have that desire back again...thank you Lord!
So, anyway...I digress. The real point is...look what came in the mail today. My first rough draft of my first hand-applique pattern! It is printed on 11x17 paper...at full size...which I love. The center medallion is so large that it will take nine sheets taped together to get the entire "picture" together. But, the cover is almost okay...just some tweaking of the photo and verifying the size against the layout when printed.

"Success is often a series of failures that you didn't allow to stop you!"
"Embroidery is the art of enriching a fabric with stitchery."
When life throws you scraps, make a quilt.
Any day spent sewing, is a good day.
