Hello Mexico City... population around 21.2million!
On arrival in Mexico City my hosts, Lulu and Brenda owners of Quilting Dreams drove me out of the city to a town called Cuernavaca, locally known as the city of eternal springs due its ideal climate. Cuernavaca was to be our home for the next two days for a quilting retreat.
There was some show and tell, this is 'Your Home or Mine', I love the brighter 'Mexican' colours that have been used.
Breakfast, Lunch and a light supper was served in the dining room.
I had a great time with these ladies for the two day retreat.
No, this is not a field of (tipi's) tee pee's, its a field of shocks, corn stalks stacked to dry. Once the stalks are dry the farmers will use donkeys to transport the dried stalks back to thier farms where it will be used for animal feed during the winter months.
The next two days workshops were held in the store back in Mexico City. We had more show and tell, this 'In Full Bloom' sample was made during a club through the store under the guidance of Lulu.
I love the variety of embroidery stitches that have been used and the slightly brighter threads look great.
Lunch each day was prepared in the outdoor kitchen by these chef's :)
Here we all are enjoying a lazy lunch, relaxing in the garden.
The days passed quickly, at the end of each day the students were given a certificate to say they had attended a workshop with me and we promised to meet again.
I met some lovely ladies during my visit and hope that they are working on thier homework!
Thank you to Lulu and Brenda from Quilting Dreams for making this adventure possible.
