|My "Bee" Quilt|
Sometime around the first of the year it was proposed that we all swap a block and ‘Stars’ was the theme. I knew I was in for a change, and opted to not participate… but I was eager to see what everyone was doing and since I wasn’t participating, I was able to peek in the boxes.

And just in case you can’t tell I love the quilt and THANK my wonderful friends for the beautiful thoughtful gift from their hearts and hands! I do feel truly blessed and fortunate to have met these ladies and was able to spend some really fun and interesting hours with them!
One item in the category of The Same but Different:
Is the Internet here in South Africa. I won’t be posting too many pictures… (and if I do, will be low quality), we are finding that uploading pictures takes up all our air time on the aircard… Here in South Africa, you buy your Internet by the Megabyte or Gigabyte… not by the month… and some of the services say when you are out you are out for the rest of the month. We are currently on an aircard (3G), which is very sloooow, because we don’t have telecom at the house yet. That means we don’t have telephone, TV or Internet. We are hoping to have that next week sometime. On Thursday they pulled the wires into the house… after they pulled them through the driveway. Now they just have to schedule the Telecom company to come out and splice the wires to hook the phone up… and give us a number, (apparently they are very similar to the US in the scheduling department, it’s a big maybe on exactly when). Then everything else can move forward.
