The power of the internet and the WI
I was just looking at your WI website and the gallery and was surprised to see 'my plate'. Well it's not my plate of course but Jean Cowell of Peacehaven painted my orignal in 1995. I actually have 2 plates as Jean painted one for my mother and I also had her paint a third as a wedding present for a friend. Rosalind Hodge
