Missing South Africa

This time last year my trip in Cape Town was really underway in terms of making friends, adventuring around the city, and falling in love with this beautiful country. This mash up brings all of those old feelings back to me. I am missing South Africa but I am always trying to keep it apart of my daily life even if I am not physically there anymore.

 Some photos I took from when my campus was overtaken by ice on Wednesday.

Sewing, Sewing, Sewing through the winter

I mentioned in a previous post that I received a sewing machine for Christmas this years from my Uncle Vaughn. After making a pattern of a bag I decided to make all of my friends bags before the break was over. I used quilt squares, pillows, table cloth, curtains, my dads Tommy Bahama shirt, jeans, and tons of floral prints. I realized after spending everyday sewing that I love putting prints together and seeing what works and trying different styles. I cannot wait to get a dress pattern and many more! Below are a bunch of photos I took through the process. Unfortunately I didn't bring my sewing machine back to school because I didn't think I would have had time to sew.  But now seeing the weather I should have, we have had two snow days and its only week two of classes. Regardless its looks absolutely gorgeous outside and if you can go for a walk you will just marvel at the snow and ice that has covered everything! Stay warm stay safe :)
