New beginnings

Here I am. I have thought about doing this for a long time [mainly because it is easier than updating my web site for my design biz] and what a better time than when there's whirlwind of activity in my life? There's stuff happening all of the time but this stuff's more interesting than most.

My design life has come around in huge ways in the past 6 months. I started "linda lum debono - contemporary quilt dzynes" almost 8 years ago. I slowed down for a little while but I am getting back up to speed.

I shipped off four placemats for the upcoming "Quilt It For Christmas" issue by Primedia. The week before I shipped all of my designs for my new Christmas decor book for Leisure Arts. In between, I have been designing fabric again. Now you will be able to find my fabrics in quilt shops and in chain stores [JoAnn's and Hancock]. Of course, all of the designs will be exclusive to each particular store.

Our local quilt shops [New Jersey] are having their annual shop hop this weekend. If you are in the area you should check it out! My local shop in Clinton, Kindred Quilts, is a little gem. She's got a couple of my quilts and my latest book, "Color Crazy Quilts" in her shop. I will be giving a lecture there on May 9th. More to come on that.

So, welcome to my journey. I hope that you find inspiration, creativity and passion in making things within this digital framework.
