well, that break ended up being far longer than expected!
as you might imagine; my passport did indeed show up in time
our trip to Mexico was lovely - perfect weather and nice company
the view right outside our gate
the wandering mariachi band!
on our first day; we came back to our place after shopping -
and the maid (we had a maid! I know......a maid!!)
had folded all of our towels into swans!
she had a bouquet of flowers from a wedding and used some
of the bougainvillea petals to decorate two large towels in the front room -
so pretty and such a lovely surprise!
my favourite thing!
mango on a stick with chilli pepper, salt and lime juice
she cut the mango into a flower shape -
convenient to eat it on the beach so you can wash off all the juice that
inevitably drips down your arms
so good......had one every morning for breakfast
I wish I would have been closer to this statue;
so serene and beautiful overlooking the little cove
now I am back at home -
and as usual......trying to get myself together!
I finished the bird I left before the trip
it is on its way to the US now
for my next project; I am working on some little stuffed birds
(I know......again with the birds!)
using these fabrics.......
with the bottom being a contrasting fabric
will of course show you when I have a few done
similar to the aprons I made
which I have put in the cafe next door
and have sold 3 of them!! yea
so......that’s it for now
thank you so much for not giving up on me!
I will try to get back into “the groove” of writing more posts.......
and getting on with all the different projects I have in my head
and on several different lists floating around the studio
