Holiday sewing

I might be on holiday but I'm still sewing! We are staying in a log cabin in the beautiful Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands, one of my favourite areas in South Africa. My sister-in-law and her husband are spending a few days with us and today the men went off to play golf and we spent most of the day sewing! Elaine has learned to make different bags to the ones I usually make so I was the pupil today and she was the teacher. I managed to complete one bag today and tomorrow we will make a bigger one - and the men will play golf again!

Photos will follow when I am back home and using my own computer.

While I was sewing today, Elaine saw something moving in the trout dam in front of our cabin. We went out to take a look and it was an otter! We were both so excited and watched the beautiful creature diving and swimming after fish. I think it is the most exciting wildlife experience I have ever had! Then, while we were watching the otter, a large bird, I think it was a heron, caught a fish and stayed on the bank of the dam eating it. Two wonderful acts of nature at the same time! We were so blessed to be able to watch all this taking place right in front of us!

So, more sewing tomorrow and, maybe, another sighting of the otter!?
