New use for crocheting

Crocheting is one of latest crazes sweeping the nation, along with knitting. I remember sitting with my grandmother as a child learning to knit and then crochet. There were a lot of doily patterns back then. Times seem to have moved on and we now have flowers, dresses and as seen in this bracelet experiment, jewellery.

2 Dogs, 1 Basket

The dogs are snuggling this winter. I didn't think it was possible to fit 2 medium sized dogs in one basket but they have proved me wrong.

I've been in Hermanus this long weekend relaxing and enjoying trying to spot the whales that are somewhere in the bay. Somewhere just past the kelp is a whale, there was water being blown in the air, but did the whale want to come say!

Hermanus is a rather tranquil place to stay, many paths to walk and a well paved promenade. There are tea shops in abundance and a Fish and Chips restaurant in the Harbour that looks small and cramped by serves some awesome food.

As with most of my trips to new towns, I did a walking tour (with my mother strolling along reminding to slow down!!!!) around the houses. Coming around a corner I stumbled across this Mosaic studio (closed) and snapped a few pics through the doors.

The sign pointing to the studio (SAICS) has beautiful mosaicked letters, with glass pebbles and patterned tiles in them.
