In my experience, the greatest adventures I've had have been the result of saying no to logic and reason and taking a chance. I'm sure there are plenty of instances where I've cast better judgement aside and the outcome has been less than positive….but I'm focusing on positive negatives. The mountain biking down the mountain in the dark, or hitchhiking around Northern California or taking the ski lift to the summit the first time out…...things that could have gone either way, but wound up in the great memory category. I now know, that if it's a little edgy and I'm a little undecided, it's worth it to take a chance.*
Such was the unexpectedly challenging hike up the mountain in the Alps with hungry children, darkness approaching, and possible rain. In the morning, we were greeted by a herd of cows and these two very obliging models that posed over and over.
Alp Sigel was created with hand-dyed cottons, silk organza and painted non-wovens, layered and raw-edge appliquéd, with machine quilting and hand embroidery.
