A promise


Kurt and Rebecca bought a flagpole for Bruce, our boat. And I promised to sew a flag for it, with three X's (from Amsterdam's coat of arms) on it. Summer came and went. No flag was sewn and now it's too late because they are leaving Amsterdam for good on Monday. And boy, are we going to miss them.


Rebecca is a gifted ceramics artist and she kindly agreed to do a swap with me before she left- a piece of her work for one of mine. She liked this brooch, and I had wanted to make something that referenced Bruce, so that's where the inspiration came from.


I can't wait to show you what I received in return, it's gorgeous! But autumn is here and we have lost the light in our mornings, so it was too dark to photograph it.  Next post, I promise!
