A sneak peek.. And lots of wildlife photo's!

Hi guys!

Just wanted to let you know that we didn't get eaten by a lion, but almost by a leopard.. We were having g&t's outside the safari vehicle when all of a sudden our guide spotted a leopard watching us from about 60m (about 200ft)... Needless to say I got into the car quicker than you can blink your eyes.

After coming home I have been sewing, just haven't had time to photograph it yet. So for now some sneak peeks of my Rigel bomber!

And I've made some spring sewing plans. Just waiting for my fabric swatches from Linton Tweeds to arrive.

I've made a small selection of some of our pics, if any of you are interested!

I've been working on my Crash sweater
She was standing right next to our (open) safari vehicle, quite thrilling!
 We went camping.. And it was amazing! There were only two tents and it was super luxurious.. We had an elephant walking right next to the tents one afternoon.

 After she almost had us for dinner..

 You see the most gorgeous birds! Using those colours for an outfit would be interesting.
We also took a Mkoro boat ride, it's like a canoe but then with hippo's and crocs.. And some dragonfly's, frogs and lots of spiderwebs in my face!


 I absolutely love zebra's!

Unbelievable sunrise.
 Having more g&t's, this time with a big elephant bull in the background! Crazy!

Next up will be my finished Rigel, promise!

  16. It feels like suede, but the backside feels like fabric, so I think it's actually a faux-suede.. Might have to do a burn test :)
