Hello Monday!

Happy Monday, Yarnarinnas!

It's been a deliciously wet and cool weekend here in Cape Town! Perfect crochet weather right? Augusta always gets a little moody and likes to sit on our bed gazing out at the rain. I watched her for ages while she sat like this. Funny Cat. :-)

I did spend some of my weekend crochet time helping to install another water tank and adjust gutters to make sure water actually flows into the tank! Not always a given when your house is 116 years old! There are very few exact straight lines!😃

What a joy to hear rain pour into the tank! Music to my ears and insurance for my Summer garden and it's survival into our rainy Winter season. Yes, we are a teensy bit obsessed with water here seeing as our City came precariously close to running out of water last Summer due to the ongoing drought! I'm sure Capetonians will never, ever take their water for granted. A lesson well learned in conserving this precious resource.

HOWEVER, I made the most of all the minutes in between and can finally see the end approaching the Fynbos-Protea extension. I'm starting to get excited...although I keep talking myself down because in reality there is still quite a lot to do before my Tadaaa moment. Mind you, it's not big ( like Karoo Vintage! ) but there is A LOT  going on. Also, seeing as it's very BoHo/Folk looking ( my favourite look ) a name change was in order " The FynBos BoHo Throw "!

For those of you Lovelies who already have the pattern for the FynBos Cushion Block...don't panic! The extension is included in your original purchase price and will be added to the existing File ( I will send out an Update ).

Here's a teeny sneak peek...I don't want to give too much away or it won't be a surprise! 😄 XXX
