Blog Give-away and Autumn Colour

Somehow I have ended up with two copies of the catalogue for the New Legacies: Contemporary Art Quilts show that ran this summer in Fort Collins, Colorado.  My piece, Red Stool, was in the show and won an Honourable Mention.  I am giving away my extra catalogue (value $15) to the first person who posts a message to this blog.  So leave a message and I will mail the catalogue to you.

Just to keep this post beautiful, here are a few autumn leaf photos I captured around Ottawa yesterday.   I was up at the crack of dawn for an early morning dentist appointment, and arriving too early I stopped at Island Park to photograph these. Colours appear very saturated in the early morning light, but the sky was rather grey.

Photos below were shot late day on the walking/bicycle path running along the Ottawa River near Petrie Island, south of Orleans.  The sky had cleared by then.  I think the leaves will peak here by about next week.

We found a large gathering of Canada Geese at the beach on Petrie Island.  
I'm heading to St. Jacobs tomorrow to pick up my show.  Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving to all!


  1. Beautiful autumn pictures, love the reds!

    1. Hi Laura,
      You are the winner! Please email me at equehl@hotmail.com with your mailing address. For some reason I can't respond to the messages from you that get to my email box. Your return address is listed as noreply-comment@blogger.com. Couldn't find your email address on your blog either. Thanks

  2. Elaine, Just sent you my address! Thanks for the great prize! I also added my email address to my blog--when I'm at work I have trouble with some of my blog comments, they don't always go through, and when they do, they use my no-reply email address.

  3. Beautiful! Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Elaine!

  4. Hi Elaine, just wanted to tell you my book arrived yesterday, thanks so much! The cover quilt is stunning, it's fun to see it closer up and how it was made. Your quilt, with the red stool, is gorgeous. Someday I hope to see your work in person. Enjoy your weekend and thanks again!

  5. Laura, you are most welcome! I'm so glad the book arrived safely and so quickly. I hope we'll meet in person one day.
