Game Farm

We went to visit friends who stay on a Game Farm a couple of sundays ago and went for a game drive. We saw a 5 metre long African Rock Python. It was gliding across the road. What an amazing sight.

Notice how thick the python's body is.....
Apart from all the usual game, we saw a 1 week old giraffe calf. What a beautiful sight. The mother hides to give birth to her calf and then about 1 week later brings her calf out and introduces it to the rest of the herd. We watched the introductions yesterday afternoon - a sight to behold. David took all the photos.

We had a tornado like storm last friday afternoon. We are very fortunate. A big tree on our verge fell onto our perimeter fence, destroying the gate in the process. It fell at 45 degrees to our house otherwise we would have lost part of our house. The dogs didn't even go out through the broken gate. It was too fast for me. I was at the shops, knew that a storm was on the way. By the time I realised that there might be a problem, the storm was almost over. Some people in our district lost their houses. They were flattened totally by the wind etc. Sad too lose everything.
These are some of the photos......

African Elephant

It's been a long time since I have quilted and written about my quilts. I have just started working on a new wall hanging - an African Elephant in Silhoutte on top of a crazy patch/log cabin backround standing under a Baobab tree. The backround will represent the green bush/grass, blue sky and yellow sun. I'll post photos as I go. Am looking forward to seeing how it turns out......
