Book cover project in progress

This is the latest book cover i'm busy with. I've enjoyed it - it's taken very little time to embroider.

Winter in SA so my hands get cold quickly, so it's the perfect embroidery project :-).

Littley Book cover

i'm into book covers at the moment. I made this little one - half the size of an A5 book, (i'm thinking that is A6). I gave it as a gift to a lovely friend. i make the covers so that they can be re-used once the book is full, if it's being used as a note book.

World Cup Soccer 2010 in S.A.

My husband, Ken, before the game at Soccer City on 17 June 2010. He watched the exciting game between Argentina and South Korea, with the score 4-1 to Argentina. Awesome Stadium.

Kruger Park Game Reserve

In one of the camps where we stopped for breakfast, there was a lone bull elephant, with one tusk only, having his breakfast, behind us! (Calin & I)

Some Kudu running across the road infront of us.

5 month's of zip creating....

oh my word, five months have past, and i haven't even been close to my blog. Very sad. I'm hoping to rectify that now, now that my life is on track again. I have been retrenched and unemployed; and had my fair share of trials and tribulations. But that is all behind me now, we look ahead and find precious time to create and share with all....
We, in South Africa, are now in the last week of the Soccer World Cup, and it's been awesome, to say the least. People have come together in this country, like never before. Thanks to Fifa for having faith in us, and thanks SA for a wonderful, memorable, united time.

It's good to be back!!

In the Valleys i grow...
Sometimes life seems hard to bear
Full of sorrow, trouble & woe,
it's then i have to remember
.. That it's in the valleys i grow.
If i always stayed on the mountain top
.. and never experienced pain,
I would never appreciate God's love
And would be living in vain.
I have so much to learn
And my growth is very slow,
Sometimes i need the mountain tops,
But it's in the valleys i grow.
I do not always understand
why things happen as they do,
But i am very sure of one thing,
My GOD will see me through.
Forgive me GOD, for complaining
When i'm feeling so very low,
Just give me a gentle reminder
That it's in the valleys i grow.
Continue to strenthen me, GOD
And use my life each day
To share your love with others
And help them find their way.
Thank you for valleys, GOD
For this one thing i know
The mountain tops are glorious,
But it's in the valleys i grow.
Have a Beautiful Day, in your valley...
