Weekly Photo Challenge : Pattern

Pattern can be found in many aspects of my life – it seems I am more of a pattern than a plain person.

Here are some of my wall hangings/floor coverings/table cloths, that I found in Africa:Image

The above is a piece of material I found one Christmas time many years ago, and it has been used on our table for Christmas dinner every year for a long time – who could not feel festive when looking at it!.Image




My wall hangings are more examples of the pattern that can be found in African art, guaranteed to brighten any home.

    Thank you, I think the bottom one shows that it is mainly the ladies who do most of the work in the field!
