Isn’t this just the most gorgeous sight? This is Lake Louise in the Banff National Park, Canada on a bad day. We were dodging snow flurries and the sun was not to be seen. Obviously this isn’t the lake in its full glory, but I love the way I by some miracle managed to catch how atmospheric it was. The water was completely clear and still and reflected every tiny detail. Because of the weather there was almost nobody there at all, which made it all the more beautiful and eerie. I’ve been to Lake Louise on a beautiful summer day before and the view is majestic in it’s splendour and spectacularly beautiful (the Japanese tourists don’t go there for no reason!), but somehow this cold, grey, snowy autumn day touched my soul more.
While staying in the Rockies I followed your recommendations and visited the Sugar Pine Company quilt store in Canmore. Now that’s one shop I would just love to have in a town near me. What an amazing selection of fabrics – I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many! Would you believe it , I actually managed to show some shopping restraint (mainly because I had almost no space in my suitcase!). I did however weaken to buy these wild and crazy fat quarters. They weren’t marked so I have no idea which fabric ranges they are from – a multitude of different ones I’d guess. I just loved them and they are sitting next to me brightening my day and distracting me from my day job (which admittedly doesn’t take much!).
I know I have so many projects to finish and even more waiting to be started, but I just couldn’t resist these wacky fun fabrics. I’m hankering after making something bright and fun …. And you know i just had to buy them because I’d never find anything like these here in Switzerland. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!).
Watch this space….
Again…. and à bientot…..
