Feeling a wee bit famous

I got my issue of the New Zealand Quilter magazine (a pretty good issue this quarter too!).

And I was pretty excited to see my quilt, 'Tui at Dawn' featured on page 20!  I knew it was going to be in there as I had to send my quilt to them to be photographed, but I didn't think it was going to be a nice big picture like it is.  Shirley Dixon writes a great article about quilts with a distinct NZ flavour and I guess mine fits right in.

Now who thinks my photos are crooked?  They're not, it's just an optical illusion created by having the subject of both photographs tilted at the same article.  If I was a perfectionist I'd go retake them to get them either at alternate angles or straighten them right up.  I'm not a perfectionist, so you get to marvel at tricks of vision and perception!


  1. Congratultions again, Charlotte!! I'm happy to look at your crooked photos, they make me feel right at home :-)

  2. I suppose you'll be expecting special treatment now??? A great big congratulations from me... you certainly deserve it. And there must be something wrong with my eyes (and/or brain) ... but I couldn't work out which photos were crooked, let alone understand your description of why!!!

  3. Congratulations, Charlotte..woohoo, you famous Kiwi!

  4. How cool is that! Good for you.

  5. Well done, that's awesome... not just world famous in Northland :)

  6. I must remember to look for that next time I hit the library :)


  7. You can feel proud!!! Really. It is such a success!
