Shared Decision Making

The need to postpone an arranged making day due to work commitments resulted in  FaceTime decision making this morning.  Swift decisions were made within the limited  time frame in order to move the project forward around the illustrations and text.  Determining the order of production led to jobs being shared between us  in order to construct the book within the given deadline.

Both P and I are keen to build on the style of working we established during Meeting in the Middle and share the production of  both text and image.  This is being realised by P adding letterpress text on top of initial backgrounds and both of us typing the selected stories. Both of us will use a blue ribbon and decorative elements in order to draw upon sewing conventions seen in dressmaking patterns.

Whilst I finish the backgrounds, P will edit each story and produce a template to work to.  P will then add letterpress text whilst I construct new backgrounds for additional individual stories.  Each of us will have 2 weeks to type the stories and add any final embellishment which is still to be decided but may include stitched details and bias binding trims.

Following the FaceTime conversation, my first job is to send P the sewing story I am contributing to the book.  Reflecting upon my first sewing projects at secondary school led me to old school reports and reading around Needlecraft and Housecraft education in the 1970’s.

  1. It’s been an interesting process today T using text messages and photos to get an instant response to work in progress. I was wondering why we didn’t use this method more frequently, but it’s probably because it’s unusual for us both to be working at home at the same time. I’ve found having instant feedback really useful and it’s definitely helped to progress design development effectively.
