This coloring book is one I took from my husband's classroom. It's all repeating geometric shapes to color in and make cool designs. I colored in it while at the park with my little one, and I actually found it pretty relaxing. The neat thing about these so-called "adult coloring books" is that you can focus on color combinations and how they impact the way each shape appears in the overall design.
Working with repeated images got me interested in incorporating tessellations into my work. In the coming months, I'll be showing you some of what I'll make, and even show you how to make your own repeating designs and use them in a sewing project. I don't know how I'll be able to wait, but I must.
I've also been working on sending out query letters for freelancing jobs. I've got a couple coming up that I'll show you when they're done. But I also spent some time designing patterns (or at least the beginnings of patterns) that I'll post here for you all to download for free.
What have you been working on? Or is summer keeping you from creating?
