Days One through Five and ugly fabric project

In the near future I am going to embark on a trip that I have wanted to do for many years, South Africa here I come.

Day one: 
I depart from home for a flight to New York.  Here my room mate, from Montreal, Quebec and myself will meet for the first time.  We are hoping to have sufficient time to take in a bit of late afternoon sightseeing.

Day two:
Depart from New York to Johannesburg, a long flight, so hope to be able to get a bit of sleep.

Day three:
Arrive in Johannesburg and at our hotel, we meet all of the people on the tour during a welcome dinner.

Day four:
Starts with a tour of Johannesburg, a visit to the Apartheid Museum.  In the afternoon we visit the township of Soweto.

Day five:
We fly to Victoria Falls and transfer to our Lodge.  Dinner tonight is described as a special African experience.  Always open to trying new foods, I am looking forward to this meal.  I have taken precautions, Dukoral is now in my system.  LOL

Thursday night was the first meeting of the Fall season for the quilting guild I belong to.  It was great to see everyone.  At our June meeting, our host asked everyone to bring a fat quarter of their ugliest fabric.  All of the fabric was then placed in a bag and each one of us had to pull out a piece and make something from it for our September meeting.  This is a piece of the fabric I pulled out.
And this is what I made from the fat quarter, a reversible apron, a draw resulted in it going to B.

that is a cute apron, and I have seen a lot worse fabric. When do you leave for Africa?

I personally do not find your ugly fabric ugly, I guess that proves beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I do find your apron adorable, lucky draw for B!
Hope your trip goes well, and is full of beautiful memories for you. Safe traveling mercies ~

I agree, a cute apron. You are so clever to be able to make something like that!

Your trip already sounds amazing! So glad you're visiting Victoria Falls.
