Happy Travelling

Friend, workmate and fellow quilter Sandra was fare-welled from work as she sets off on a wonderful adventure. Sandra and her husband are off to Australia where they plan to buy a caravan and tow car and spend a year or so exploring. I made Sandra a New Zealand themed present to remind them of “home”, a couple of place mats for their caravan table . These are made from New Zealand design fabrics of flora, fauna, and Maori designs, and set off with black fabric.

As Sandra is Australian, I told her she will have no trouble understanding the lingo!! It will be a wonderful trip, and as a fellow caravanner, I am really envious. Happy travelling.

They look simple but oh so effective. Good placement and colour choice. I bet she will love them.
