New Design

My latest design is done from a photograph I took some time ago of our Church & Community Hall. As our "Come Home Year" celebrations are being held this year in August, I decided I would hook a few mats of things concerning my community.

I post this picture with a heavy heart today because it is my dear Mother-in-Law's Birthday; she would have been 92 years old today. Each time I designed a new mat, I would take it to let her see what I had done and of course, she always marveled at my work. She was very proud of the fact that she taught me how to hook many years ago, and I am so appreciative of that. According to her, there was never a thing I could change to make it look better. I hope she can still see what I am doing....R.I.P. dear Mother.....


  1. Anne, your dear Mother, left a legacy in your art and that will live on.

    I love the Come Home Year mat and just to let you know that the Icons of NL have sold over 1000 tickets so far. The draw is in August, and I will keep you posted!

  2. Very nice mat, and very nice sentiment! She was lucky to have such a caring daughter-in-law!!

  3. Thanks so much, Julie....

    Boy, the tickets are selling well. Will be interesting to see just how much is raised for such a good cause...Indeed, keep me posted....

  4. Hi Alice, Thanks to you....I appreciate your comment very much.
