Cape Town

We arrived into Cape Town with thick cloud on table Mountain but woke up on Saturday morning to clear skies and a lovely breakfast at Guest House

With bright skies I went out to take some more photos of the coloured houses

Rayna and I decided we would get a train along the coast, we were advised that it might be dangerous but it wasn’t and my only complaint was that the windows could have been cleaner so i could see out of the window better

Our first stop was Kalk Bay

We made a couple of purchases – more in another post of the delightful Michel

And then borded the train again from St James to Simonstown to Boulders Beach to see the penguins

Maybe these images will become a new Journal Quilt

Stunning!

The next day – more photos of Table Mountain

And then goodbye to Rayna

I then went on to see the Shre shre (not the right spelling) exhibition and do a bit of shopping

before meeting up with Pam Stallebrass who lives near Cape Town and will be having a stand at Festival of Quilts next month

Pam took me to the botanical gardens in Cape Town to see the giant protea plants

then on to another harbour

and then on to the airport for the long flight home.

So I have loads more ideas for more quilts but no time to make them as I need to get my new book finished for Festival of Quilts, and the new kits.

  1. So jealous of your gorgeous photos. Next time, I take a real camera:-). Wish I had had time to buy more fabric – those African ones looked gorgeous. Of course, after having washed all my laundry yesterday, followed by the tons of fabric this morning, my washing machine has died. Well, at least I can start ironing.
    xxxooo

  2. I have been following your blog since meeting you at fashion and embroidery this year,thanks for sharing your photos of recent travels,they are amazing.
