Oh, you just have to give in and watch a bit of world cup soccer, even if you're not a sports fan. I admit I'm not, but who can resist? I admit I've also given in to the vuvuzelas. You know, those loud horns that the fans blast out, smothering all other sounds. They sound like a massive bee hive. I've been receiving a lot of new wall hangings and embroideries from South Africa with the soccer theme. They are utterly charming!
This is a tiny piece from Isipethu. 8" x 9" It shows the fans with vuvuzelas, one with an umbrella for the sun – they are walikng to the stadium to watch their team: Bafana Bafana. I've listed this little piece, along with some others on my Etsy site. If you're intersted plese check it out at www.africanthreads.etsy.com
