memento

by Nova on December 20, 2012

*apologies if you get this in your reader twice – a bit of an oopsi occurred  – sorry!*

3 little pouches made using one of my fav patterns (Jeni’s drawstring pouch – I made the Snack Bag size) made for myself & 2 dear friends as mementos of happy times spent earlier this year on a trip to Vietnam, from fabric purchased in the markets of Ho Chi Minh City (mixed with a little Essex Linen in Steel & some black Kona).

We had an ace trip. Lots of laughs, food, fabric, shopping & fun. Happy days. Vietnam is a very beautiful country – special people, incredible food, awesome markets to loose yourself in, great coffee, surprises around every corner – it gets a great big thumbs up from me. I can’t wait to go back.

those photos brought back wonderful memories of my honeymoon in Vietnam. We visited Ho Chi Minh city, the Mekong Delta, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi and Halong Bay… it was amazing.

Worth seeing twice! Lovely momento of a trip and those photos remind me of our trip to Cambodia earlier in the year, which kick started me on my blog. A fascinating part of the world!
