Fall is well on its way, Emilie Loring’s favorite season of the year. I returned from a lovely vacation in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where the fall colors were clear and bright, and, wouldn’t you know, it’s been raining ever since! As I wait for “clearing skies and the sunshine of hope and joy and courage,” here are more of Bonnie’s homemade book covers to enjoy. Do you have a favorite?
“About the same time I created these covers I also did what I call ‘spread sheets’ about her books. I sorted and listed titles by alphabet Then I listed by date written. Then by plot locations (my guesswork). Finally I listed them by title with the names and descriptions of the main plot characters… Did you notice that only two of the stories actually connect? Rainbow At Dusk left us with a cliff hanger, but all was revealed with a happy ending in Bright Skies.” ~ Bonnie
“At first I always thought movies should have been made of her stories… but realizing how script writers can change and fracture plots so much I’m glad there weren’t any ever made. They’d have been a huge disappointment.” ~ Bonnie
“My favorite is the cover I created for With This Ring. It’s also a favorite story of mine. Except for a few areas, it sounded more like Emilie’s writing.” ~ Bonnie
I hope you’ve enjoyed Bonnie’s creations and encourage you to share your Emilie Loring projects with us. Do we have any quilters among us? Or creative cooks?
Rain continues to fall, and we’re under both a tornado watch and a flood watch here in Kansas. I’m happy to be snug and warm inside, with a whole collection of Emilie Loring books to keep me company. Happy landings, everyone!
