Jane's Jottings

Another stitched model stolen!

I have been up at the Festival of Quilts and cannot believe it!

Someone has taken my worked model of the Flower Book! The whole thing…….All those hours of work…………

First time I have burst in to tears at a show………………Who ever you are – you cannot even imagine the punishments I have thought up over the past few hours – 100s of hours of stitching and caring and you just helped yourself – What must it be like to be the person you are…………….

I fully understand your grief. Can’t believe someone would steal at a show. Please don’t give up though. The vast majority of us are honest.

Oh Jane, I am so sorry. There are such horrible people around, but I didn’t think they would be at the FOQ!

I can’t believe it either! Rest assured, we’re all rallying around and with Jane Herbert organising us we’ll replace it very soon.

Have tried and failed to think of a printable comment. Not good enough to help with stitching. Thinking of you all the time Jane.

This makes me sick. So hard to realize that there are people who do this! What can they gain? Some people need to be neutered!!

Dear Jane

What a tragedy. I would have been happy to loan you my copy, but I used a finer linen and added a few personal designs.
