I had a surprise phonecall a few days ago, commissioning Rory's Rockets as a project for Australian Patchwork and Quilting; wanting it and the instructions rather urgently! As thrilled as I was, I had to tell them it was no longer up to me, but that I would contact the quilt's owner, to see if she was still happy to send it off for photography. Happily for me, she was most obliging and not only agreed, but mailed it off via express post the very next day.
So instead of sewing, or tidying up in preparation for Ads' visit this weekend, I've spent the last few nights working on the instructions. It's hard without the quilt to hand, and of course I can't find my notes, but luckily I have the design files and photos to work from. I think one more night or writing will see the instructions done, then there's just the diagrams and steps for photography.
Rory's Rockets is scheduled to be in Australian Patchwork and Quilting Vol 18 No 12, due out in March 2010.
And a reminder about a giveaway (entries now closed) here this weekend to coincide with the opening of my Etsy shop!
