Pardon my slightly inebriated grin! This was taken at sunset on Joba Beach. It's more of a surfer dude beach where there is several places to purchase a Carona!
This was taken at Hacienda Juanita which is 1600 feet above sea level. To get there you drive on this super narrow winding road which makes the Coastal Highway in California look like a super highway! Scary! This place used to be a coffee plantation and still grows a small crop. It's been here since the 1800's. It's now a parador, or small hotel, the rooms were beautiful with a Mexican influence. Wish we could have stayed there for a few days.
This last one was taken at sunset from our balcony in La Parguera. We loved this southern side of the island. The beaches were absolutely beautiful. We would love to return to Puerto Rico. The beaches are spectacular and the people were very friendly. Once you get out of San Juan, there is so much beautiful country to see and one beach is more beautiful than the next.
I have gotten back into the sewing groove. As Calico Cat told me when I was whining to her last week about being unmotivated, Just do it!! I completed my March postcards, the theme was "Portraits". I have been collecting old photos of children for years and this theme gave me an opportunity to spotlight 6 of my favorites. Here is one of them. This cutie looks like one of my students from years ago. The photo is printed on fabric and the frame is a satin. I stitched around the opening and stamped "Forget me not" on them all. This one was a little off so I kept it for myself. The others are on their way to England and France to my international PC friends.
We have all bought the pattern and will get together once a month for "snowman night" to work on our projects together. I am doing my blocks in blue and white. That way I can keep it up all through the winter. I have two of the redwork blocks done already. I love doing them when I am watching tv at night. They work up so fast!! This is a pretty big quilt so I'm not sure I will do all of the pieced blocks. I'm thinking about doing a wall hanging for the entryway.
Whewwww, well that's me all caught up. I am also caught up in "March Madness" with the women's NCAA games. We are rooting for our UConn team to go to the Final Four and win it all!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Will catch up with you in blogland.
