January 2016

Grab a cup and see what Nana's been up to since Christmas!

The Monday after Christmas, we left for Cozumel with our son Chris's family.  The weather was very sunny, hot and humid.

We rented cars and drove around the island.

The beaches on the other side of the island were very windy and the waves were huge.

One of our favorite things was a cooking class  on local foods from Josefina. We learned how to make our own tortillas and several other Mayan dishes which we washed down with Margaritas and Jimaca juice, a drink made from the flowers of the hibiscus plant...very healthy.

Most of all, we just relaxed and snorkeled as much as possible.
You're probably tired of seeing my feet!

The family left the Monday after New Years but we stayed on for three more glorious weeks.  Our flight home was delayed 10 hours because of engine trouble, so we spent the last day on the grass outside the airport drinking wine and beer and enjoying the beautiful weather.

Must this be quilt related?  Well I'm planning to work on my UFOs, one each month and this is what I did on vacation.  I finished all the wool applique blocks from a quilt class I took 2 years ago.  They were an easy portable project to take along.  Now I have to piece the blocks for the quilt, but I can't do that in February as I will be on the road again!  I'll have to find another portable project to take along.

Are you finishing any UFOs this year?

Happy stitching!

  1. I envy your feet being where they are!! What a wonderful winter escape and even though you had that long delay - waiting outside in the sun on the grass with liquid refreshment must have been so much better than being trapped inside a crowded air terminal. Portable projects are a must for quilters on the go - I am all ready planning what to take on our 6th journey to the mountains and glaciers this summer:-)
    Wishing you safe and happy travels!
