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 ..it 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 ??? 2000....it 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 


....so, 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
