Does this have anything to do with quilting?

How exciting is this?  Bangle bracelets that look like measuring tapes!  Be still my beating heart.  I found these in a little shop in Victoria.  Brass and resin.  Made in India.  Perfect for quilters.  Guess what I am taking for a door prize to my quilt guild meeting tomorrow?  Yep.  Perfection.  I bought 3 of them.  I might have to keep one for myself.

And this picture is for Mum who wanted me to look for this in Victoria.  A new statue of Emily Carr, the famous Canadian artist and that is the Empress Hotel, behind her.  Emily had a pet monkey and that is what she is looking at on her shoulder.  I love her wee dog too. So there you go, Mum.  I didn't forget.

Linking up with Cindy for Random Thursday!  Don't forget my giveaway and all the other giveaways over at Sew Mama Sew!

  1. Those are the best bangles!!! Great find.
    The statue if Emily Carr is interesting. Now I am going to have to google her, just to see her works.

  2. Okay. I just googled Emily Carr. I am in love with her paintings!!!! Thanks for getting that picture for your mom. You have introduced me to a new and beautiful world!

  3. Those bangles are brilliant.
    and I will have to google Emily Carr too now.

  4. She is certainly an interesting character.
    Her art was not what I was expecting at all.

  5. Love those bangles! Of course you need to keep one for yourself :)

  6. I need to track down some of those bangles--they are awesome! That statue is very cool. I especially love the way the dog is looking at things.

  7. Hey Cathy, I was delighted to win the bangle at guild tonight - what a cool door prize for my first meeting. I love it! (You should definitely keep one for yourself, too.)
