I’m one of the secret sisters of the travelling goat. This is a very secret club in which goats are flying around the world and having interesting experiences before they return home. All the sisters are going to have global influence….in any future goat escapades!!!
My goat will leave tomorrow morning by dog team (aka Canada Post). Today the huskies are chowing down on salmon to get their strength up for the long trip tomorrow. My goat is going all the way to Maria in Australia. How will the huskies get over the ocean you ask??? Why they meet up with Santa’s reindeer who run that leg of the journey. Then I believe there is some kind of kangaroo express….. Maybe this should be the sisterhood of the travelling reindeer or the travelling kangaroos!
I forgot to take a picture of my goat before s/he left… but as a reminder of him/her I have this little goat waiting here for her sibling to come back home….
Let me tell you about goats. I knew I had some wool fabric but couldn’t find it anywhere. My friend Dahn and I drove over the snowy mountain pass (in her all wheel drive, fully equipped vehicle) to Alaska yesterday where we raided the quilt shop and I bought wools. (How many of you make a trip to another country for a shopping spree in a town where there are only three stores open and the only restaurant closes at 2 p.m.?)
This morning I had a moment of clarity and remembered where I had stored my wool fabric twenty years ago when I last used it. Now I have lots of wool. The piece that Lucy is resting on above is a small remnant of a Hudson Bay blanket that DH and I were given for a wedding present. There was a fire 6 months after our wedding and we lost everything we owned. This scrap of the blanket managed to escape and I kept it thinking I’d make something out of it. Hudson Bay blankets are beautiful and warm.
I also found this dress that I made for myself at least 30 years ago…
While we’re on the vintage theme – here is the second instalment of hexies from DD # 2. They arrived in the mail yesterday! What a fabulous job she is doing!
Happy travelling, goat!
