in stitches and seams , Annette had kindly asked me to test out her pattern and when it arrived in the mail I knew this is what I wanted to make for the challenge . I passed on my creation last night to Kim and she liked it very much which made me very happy . Now you know what was really funny was Kim had my brown bag but of course neither of us knew that until last night . My fabrics were fall fabrics which is my favorite time of year and Kim surprised me with this beautiful table topper .
A lovely large Dresdan Plate , just perfect for my round table , thanks so much Kim you did a fantastic job of using my fabrics to their best advantage .
I have one more thing to share , some of our members exchanged postcards with the Whangarei Patchworkers quilt guild in New Zealand and Lynda P who I corresponded with to arrange this exchange just happened to have Kim for a partner and Lynda sent along a beautiful art piece for me as well as Kim , it is just gorgeous .
This is The Bay of Islands in NZ, I sure would love to see this in person. Thanks so much Lynda , I will always treasure it .
I wasn't going to mention this but I am just so darn proud I must share . My brother William Rogers(Bill) is a renowned artist and has won awards all across the globe , well this week , Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have been doing a royal tour of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island andWinnepeg Manitoba and Bill was chosen by Prince Charles as the official artist for this event . He travelled with them throughout the tour and now I am anxious to see just what he painted for them. If you are interested you can check out his work , here is a link to his website . http://williamrogersart.com . I am very proud of my brother and love his work .
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
