Happy New Year Everyone!

I have added some pictures from my recent trip to South Africa. Everywhere we went, we saw street vendors selling fabric. The fabric is not of good quality, but the designs were intriguing, and of course I bought some. The fabric was sold in 2 metre lengths which they called tablecloths. Now all I have to do is make something from all the fabric I acquired!

Notice the folded fabric being carried on their heads, while they hold up one piece to be seen.
