Yes, sadly, it's true.
2 suitcases were taken from the locked trunk of my car just after the Quilt Canada conference here in St. John's Newfoundland. I've lost a significant body of work.
Tropic of Capricorn
Several small wall hangings and collages
Almost all of the landscapes from my new book "Points of View"
Also gone are all my teaching samples, slides etc.
Flamboyant in on the homepage of my web site and I'd just borrowed it back from a collector here in St. John's for an exhibition in August.
I still need to make a complete inventory when I get back home to Nova Scotia, so will keep you posted later on next week. In the mean time, keeping an eye on eBay, Kijiji St. Johns', Freecycle web sites and flea markets in the St. John's area are one way to perhaps spot them. Phone the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary if you do. A reward has been posted around this town for their return. There are optimistic people here in St. John's who feel they just may turn up. So, positive thoughts are gratefully received!
I've had an outpouring of support from quilters around the globe. You are all so wonderful and positive. I'll try and respon to you all later on next week.
Right now, I'm staying with my original plan to have a short vacation on the coast of Newfoundland.
I'll post again when I have news and when I can get back to my computer and access to photos.
p.s. I still love Newfoundland!!
