This is not the first time I have written a blog post about snow. Over the eight and a half years I have been writing this blog, the topic of snow has come up from time to time. Readers, I am a fan. So in today’s post I am sharing some recent snowy delights and showing you snow-inspired fabrics.
I have recently been in Canada. One of my sons lives in Vancouver and no less than seven members of the family in the UK travelled to see him in December. Although it is possible to ski on at least two mountains close to Vancouver, generally speaking there is not a lot of snow in the city. This year was the exception. A beautiful outdoor exhibition of coloured lights in the Van Dusen botanical gardens was magical due to the reflections on deep snow.
In the town of Squamish, it is possible to catch a cable-car up a distance of 1,000 metres and go from sea-level to mountain top. No snow at the bottom, but deep snow on the various trails for walkers. First, you had to cross this suspension bridge.
In Sasquatch, where we all went for a day’s skiing, there was lots of snow. The temperature was minus 18 degrees centigrade and it continued to snow lightly, but we were not deterred.
On the following day, when we had to leave, the sky was blue and the mountains beautiful.
Snow and mountains inspired this New Year themed fabric ‘Fireworks in the Alps’ available here.
This is ‘Little Chalet’, a pretty, small-scale print on a white background. It is available here
The two ski-ers in my ‘Kisses in the Snow’ design are clearly not deterred by the cold weather! This fabric is available here
