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!
