A four month retrospective of work produced so far this year. There has been so much work, that I thought I would recap. The start of this year went well, then Covid 19 hit, (so far I am grateful not to have contracted it as I am self isolating) but I did get shingles and sciatica. Therefore precious little has been achieved this month. This four month retrospective looks at everything I have made from January to April with regard to art quilts and ebooks.
Retrospective January 2020
I hit the ground running with some art quilts – the Kingfisher, Seagull, Rusty Scissors, There Are Always More Fish In The Sea (sold), Bird Art Quilt.
I also completed one of my Inspiration ebooks – Reflections and Shadows was the first one of the year and thirteenth in the series.
Retrospective February 2020
Inspiration ebook number fourteen followed hot on its footsteps featuring Domes, Cupolas, Spires and Towers. Inspiration Madeira was also launched, the second of the travel ebooks.
There was another flurry of art quilts, this time some digital ones – Fine Feathered Friend, Shapes and Church as well as more collage type, Fantastic Bird and Camellia Tea.
This month also saw the launch of my first book of knitting patterns inspired by the Peak District.
March Retrospective 2020
This month got off to a bang with a new ebook, charting the designs of my quilts so far. Each design is described and assessed by my cold and calculating eye!
The third travel inspiration ebook was launched – Marseille. Then the fourth – Lisbon. If that was not enough, the fifth one appeared too – Corfu.
April Retrospective 2020
There are still a few days to go. This month has already seen the launch of the sixth Travel Inspiration ebook – Athens.
The scrappy quilt is almost finished and that will see the launch of a new Scrap Quilt ebook.
All ecourses are now on craftcourses.com as well as my own website. Did I do well? I certainly produced a lot of work, which is available on the website under quilts or ebooks and there are always the ecourses too.
I’ll see you in May. Words, work and images copyright Karen Platt 2020
