My Mum, Dad and little sister Jordy have up and left me.... for an exciting
work play.... Holiday!!
They have escaped the hot Aussie weather and have landed in the icy cold -20 degree temperatures.... in Canada!
Im am so jealous... on soo many levels!! The snow! The holiday! The skiing! The mountains!....but i think mostly......dare i say it.....the FABRIC STORES!!!!
I couldn't let them leave without a little pressie....Mum couldn't squeeze her quilt into her 20kg bag.... so i thought she might be able to squeeze in a little Laundry bag!...
I used left over scraps from her shell quilt... and HAD to add a little of her most favourite thing in the whole world.... Leopard print!!
I miss you mum....xx
and... I had to make Jordy one too....
....to match her luggage, Of Course!
I miss you too Jordy!! xx
xx I LOVE YOU FAMILY!!! xx
It looks like a fabulous place to have a cold break! What town is the photo of? I think I have been there, just can't remember the name, and it looks a bit different with snow!ReplyDelete
Oh I'd love to see snow one day - and shop in the fantastic fabric stores over there. I'm sure they'll have a great time and will bring you back some Canadian goodies :-)ReplyDelete
The laundry bags are awesome! I can't wait for the snow to melt here in Michigan. I need spring!!! :-)ReplyDelete
this looks like a really fun vacation! our snow has gone and i am missing it alreadyReplyDelete
Those bags are sure classy. I'm with your mother, leopard print rocks!ReplyDelete
ladies, I assure you, unless you know something I do not about Canadian fabric shops, you are missing out on NOTHING!ReplyDelete
Fabric prices in Canada are ridiculous--seriously.
like $20 for a metre of solid fabric. and no it's not normally Kona.
truly if you know of good Canadian fabric shops--fill me in! please!
I love those laundry bags so much! glad u made me one not just mum. We miss you so much!!! Love Jordy (sister) I LOVE UReplyDelete
Hehe, I love reading about Aussies travelling to cold Canada for a break from all the hot weather. I'm assuming that the town is either Canmore or Banff. I live down the road from both! In cold, cold Calgary. I hope your family had a great visit to our corner of the world.ReplyDelete
On a second look at the photo I recognize it as Banff. What a great town! Not really many fabric store to speak of, but I hope they hit up the hot springs. So delightful to sit in hot spring water in the middle of the winter.ReplyDelete
