In total Flat Susan will visit and stay with 36 people before she returns home. Yes, thirty six! That's a lot of travelling for such a tiny person. If you are new to this blog perhaps you should scroll to the very first post so you know more about who she is and what is happening with her. You are welcome to take the button on the right to display on your own blog and we hope you will visit the blogs of the people she has been staying with and leave a kind comment after your reading.

Flat Susan Arrives in Cape Town, South Africa

Flat Susan has arrived on the next leg of her journey to stay with Bella.
Flat Susan arrived this morning on my desk in Cape Town, South
Africa, in her perfectly crafted suitcase, together with passport and first aid kit (for emergencies you know...)
As you can see she was exhausted from her journey from Scotland and was resting in her "bed".  I have however made her a chair for my desk, which I have placed on a "pedestal" with her name on so she is easy to spot for Wednesdays post of WOYWW and so she has a good view of the goings on on my desk which has a serious case of "shove out the way" clean up status below!

As a good host, I will be taking her out and about in my city to show her around some of the most beautiful vistas in the world (that's my opinion any way)  I leave you to be the judge of that later!

Please join me over the next week to see what Flat Susan gets up to...


  1. Hi Bella, so glad Flat Susan has arrived safely in South Africa ... I did worry about letting her go all that way. She is going to just love that chair, it's almost a queenly throne ... being able to survey everything that is going on will suit her just fine :) I'm sure you are going to have fun times while she is with you and I look forward to seeing those vistas. In the meantime, I miss Flat Susan and can only say 'haste ye back'. Elizabeth xx

  2. So glad she arrived looks like she is in for a fun time while she is over there too :-)

  3. Oh, I'm so excited to see my good friend Susan again. I miss her so much after all my travels with her so say a big "Hi from Liverpool" to her from me.
    I love her new chair and I'm pleased to see that she can watch over your crafting form her vantage point.
    Have fun and I look forward to sharing your adventures.

  4. Hi Bella,

    I can't wait to see where you take Flat Susan to. I only wish I could fit in her suitcase!!

    I can see you made her a chair fit for a queen!

    I haven't been blogging in a while - and very irregular at that. I'm hoping to change that soon!


  5. I hope FS is having a great time out there in SA, Bella! Love the chair, very regal indeed!


Thank you for reading about my adventures, hope you come back and read more. I am always on the move.
