An Exhibition and a Postcard

I finally received the second of my Canada Day swap cards last week. Unfortunately the sender was given the wrong postcode so it has had a journey round the Dordogne!

Here is my lovely card

It was sent by Heather McArthur who sadly does not have a personal blog. It is the first postcard that Heather has made and she has done a super job - I hope you make lots more Heather.
Heather is the editor of Quilters Connection Magazine the only quilters magazine in Canada. Have a look at the website and blog - there are lots of interesting things there.


On Friday afternoon I went to a Patchwork, Embroidery and Lace exhibition about an hour north of here at Nontron.
There were lots of lovely things to look at and to buy although I did resist!
Here are some general views of the exhibition.

Here is a picture of my favourite quilt which was made by the president of the association
 Mme de Rauglaude

I also like the way that she is putting this hexagon quilt together

with each of the rosettes lined and finished off separately.


And finally - at last I have managed to add a signature to the bottom of my blog!! My very grateful thanks to the amazingly patient Erin and her beautify your blog series.

Have a great week.

What a lovely environment for the exhibition and there were some gorgeous quilts on display. Were any of them stitched on a machine?
