Lost: my connection to the world
I think it's pretty amazing that I can be in rural South Africa and connect to the whole world via internet. But the connection is tenuous. Yesterday the aerial that receives our internet signal was blown down by the wind. The aerial serves a group of farmers, not just us, so I guess there was a lot of squawking. The ISP man hastened out the 50 kms from town to sort it out. He was only partially successful and will have to come back today to finish the job, but he did make sure we were connected to the world again. Thanks Debruyn.
I've spent the last two days cleaning -boring for me and beyond boring to anyone else! So I thought I'd show you a picture from my archives. Jess from Tat-ilicious had a post a few days ago about using Jane Eborall's diamond pattern to look like a block or box. A few years ago I did the same, only more so, to make 'tumbling blocks'. Here's a link to the diamond, a very versatile pattern.
