French magazine quilt joint project

I rarely show these things, so sticking my neck out ( I do that on a regular basis LOL )
I have just seen the magazine in France with the stitching drawings I did for a joint effort with Marie-Claude in France..she did all the hard work of forming the quilt..I just sat at my table with pencil & paper....what I love to do.

I am really pleased & a bit overwhelmed to see it on line humbles me.
( and now have to wait for my magazine copy to fly in!!! )
It humbles me because I think who would have thought that I could come thus far...
when here..
 I sat on my Father's ( the woodcutter) knee in Cohuna.
A small country town where population then was ??? grows sometimes & returns at others...
blissfully happy... & today..

well.... I am pleased with my own personal achievements...
thanks to the high school that for me gave me the beginnings of different wings 
when one particular teacher drummed into me....doing your best, I have always done what I could do as my best....
not always did I make the hockey team to travel away 
but I tried my best 
& others were better than me some of the time.....

So today I travel with that still 
I find competing distasteful ....
I love to just do what I can & somethings I cannot do as well as the next person...& that is ok as there is room for us all...don't you think ?
and we get to share our talents 
Thank you Marie-Claude....Mouchette & Honey  XXX
