Flower Designs Coloring Book

Available now on Amazon, my Flower Designs Coloring Book is filled with 50 great floral designs for coloring!  I think y'all are really going to like this one!

Flower Designs Coloring Book, Volume 1 by Jenean Morrison

This was so much fun to design-- the ideas just flowed!  I made sure there was a nice mix of computer-generated and hand-drawn imagery, with lots of different floral styles mixed in.  I've always loved coming up with flower-based designs, so it was a real treat to put this together.  And, as with all of my coloring books, the designs are on the fronts of the pages only!

Lovelorn

Lovelorn, my new fabric collection for Free Spirit Fabric, will be making its debut at Spring Quilt Market next month.  Melissa at 100 Billion Stars has been hard at work making samples for the show.  I love working with her on my collections because she really knows how to make the fabrics shine!

Melissa also takes the best photos, and often enlists the help of this sweet little cat!

I also wanted to tell you about another awesome pattern, available in Pannay G's etsy shop!  Pannay is a Memphis girl who helped me out last year by getting a bunch of stuff ready for me to take to my schoolhouse.  She teaches quilting and sewing at Sew Memphis, my absolute favorite local shop.  Pannay was lightning fast, and the results were gorgeous!  She came up with all kinds of creative goodies.  This bag was my favorite!

New Business Cards and Some Coaster Curtains

Last month I attended Alt Summit, and in preparation I created some new business cards.  I really liked the cards I'd been using, but I felt it was time for something new.  And if you are ever going to bring your business card A-game, Alt Summit is the place to do it!  Check out some of the great business card round-ups at the bottom of this post!

I decided to go with double-sided round cards this year, which allowed me to use some of my new hand-drawn mandalas as part of the design.  My original plan was to give, in addition to the cards, a set of coasters to everyone I met, so I had these printed also.

They came back from the printers considerably thinner than I had imagined, so I held on to them instead of handing them out.  The other day I had the idea to use them as curtains, so I punched a bunch of holes in them and strung them together with some simple rings.

It has been a dark, cold winter here in Memphis, but yesterday the sun finally shined!  I hung them from a tension rod and let the sun shine though!

Such a lovely visual.  I couldn't help getting a little artsy with some photos!

I hope the sun is shining brightly where you are today!
