Winter just makes you want to escape. In Atlanta we have had a rough winter by our standards, but the silver lining for winter is that it gives you time to travel dream and to travel remember.
Last weekend, cold rainy weather inspired me to create my Bali memory quilt. Daughter India and I spent 9 wonderful days in Bali with Craftours.
The highlight of the trip to me was being kissed by an elephant. So the quilt began with an elephant. This elephant has his trunk down, so I imagine he misses me and can’t wait for my return. That is why I named the quilt Back to Bali.
Another big highlight of the trip was batik school and shopping at a batik factory. The quilt includes the pink batik fabric I actually dyed myself under the hot Bali sun and the red batik in the border that I purchased at the batik factory.
We will never forget our wonderful accommodations in Ubud. The hotel gave us an original batik fabric square, so that is also included in the quilt.
We have many more memories that are not in this quilt yet, but perhaps when I embellish it, I can find a way to include, wooden masks, monkeys, cooking and lots of flowers.
Winter truly is a time for travel remembering — and for dreaming about the next trip. #ovsfulfilledfebruary #Bali
