This is... my Work In Progress

Mmm... I have a little trouble with that title. It implies that I should have one and only one WIP. I would feel so less guilty if the title was "This is... one of my Works in Progress".

Currently, one of my biggest WIP is this


Please excuse the roughness of the Title Page. It's just a rough concept mock-up at this stage.

The book is coming along in concept, design and content. I have my next trip to Tokyo in a couple of weeks.

On that topic, I had a friend help me with some translation the other night. It's funny, in Japanese, they wouldn't actually use the phrase "to buy fabric." Of course you directly translate it and people would understand what you are talking about, but apparently Japanese just don't say it. In this country full of gorgeous fabrics, I found that quite surprising.

Thank you to Debbie Hill for this week's theme to Angela, the fabulous hostess of This is...

It's going to be a great book! And besides... it gives you an excellent reason to make even more trips to Tokyo and visit all the exciting crafty places.

Excellent, great news that it coming along well. And I loooove the 'rough concept'. Although it looks anything but rough to me! Very clever graphic design!!

Except for the missing apostrophe, I think the cover mockup is PERFECT! I wouldn't change it! 9except the apostrophe. Ex-English teacher coming out - sorry!)
