Treasures from Egypt.

Visited a place I’ve always wanted to go: Egypt.

Full of amazing history and ancient architecture.

Inspired me to make something to signify this awesome trip.

Camel pattern by Carolyn Vosburg Hall, from the book “Sewing Tiny Animals”.

Camel riding is so bumpy! They are rather cute, just quite smelly ;)

    1. Hello Megan,
      Thanks for your visit. I love travelling, and there’s always endless things to see and experience. I was planning to go to India instead but was unsure due to recent violence there. It’s still high up on my list :) Egypt is amazing though, totally worth digging a big hole in my savings to go.
