After completing the centerpiece of this work I have to put it up for approximately six weeks. It won't fit in my suitcase as I go to India in two days for work. So... here it sits for a bit. The middle medallion is striking, no?
The last time we visited Kwanza River Lodge, it was sodden, had pools of water under all the cabanas, and was a mosquito breeding ground. Not a good place to be in the land of yellow fever and malaria. When we went this time, it was much drier and pleasant. Even the shore birds approved.
This is the beginning of the first of the Knot My 2017 series. It's called Tulip Garden, and I will be working on it intermittently. I'm taking it with me to India, too. Tracy Horner is releasing six designs in the series this year.
We went on safari last month at Quissama National Park. It was a day safari and we brought our Marine son Phat. On our way there, we stopped at Miradouro da Lua, and still didn't get to the bottom. It was the first time Phat saw it.
