One of many gorgeous sunsets.

We're back from a vacation in Cozumel, Mexico.
We snorkeled, walked and enjoyed many meals at our favorite restaurant, del Museo or the Museum where we had delicious food and a breezy view.

This is my favorite breakfast, motulenos: two fried eggs over a crisp tortilla, topped with ham, cheese, peas, a delicious red sauce and a side of fried bananas. Absolute heaven!  Is your mouth watering yet?

We snorkeled and it was fun when Jim fed the fish and I got to hang out with them. 

I hung out on the beach, stitched some redwork and read a few good books.

Now it's back to reality.  I've hung the spring quilts.  This one is "Basket of Blooms" that I designed for the 1999 American Patchwork & Quilting Calendar.  My friend, Darlene shared some of her vintage fabric with me for the project.

The center of this quilt is from a crib quilt pattern by "Little Quilts".  I added the dogtooth border and the appliqued vine.  I like to put it up for Valentine's Day.

My goal for 2012 was to finish one UFO a month and sadly, I'm already behind.  Still quilting my Christmas quilt. 

I am working on a series of Civil War Blocks by Barbara Brackman which I'm starting a year late and I'm a bit behind on that, too.  Well, stay tuned...the laundry is done and I'm ready to go.  I just might get something finished.

Wishing you many beautiful sunsets and lots of finished projects!

  1. Welcome back...did you bring some of that warmth and sunshine to us winter-weary Northerners?

    Your vacation defines the word "relax"!

    Good for you to be moving along on those Civil War blocks. Mine are all done, but have yet to start on the center eagle applique block...not enough hours in the day.
