and i am back in body but not quite in soul xo

i am back from two weeks [ our longest and best vacation ever ] in puerto vallarta...we stayed in an apartment ~ had a great visit with lily and jerry and LOVED it...for sure i am going back...

so much color in mexico ~ i couldn't stop taking photos
these are just a few of my favorites xo
love the  flags and the blue sky
seashells and fabric = LOVE
oh and do you think it a coincidence that i finished up the kitty quilt for lily on the plane going down  more about the kitties here
and this was our apartment  ? xoxox
we stayed on francisco madero in old town...our neighbours swept their cobblestone streets
we had a gorgeous view of the jungle above us
our apartment was on the third floor with 3 bedrooms , a large front balcony[where i sewed and we ate and drank a lot] there were 2  small balconies off two bedrooms and we  shared the rooftop ~ complete w a very reasonable rent xo
i bought a featherweight sewing machine special for this trip

nick thought i was a bit crazy but then he is not a quilter xo
i happily worked on isaac and ani's quilt ~ more here and here

it was so worth carrying esther on....i have never flown with a machine before ~ she was a bit heavy to carry at times... but i was only questioned about her once and she fit in the overhead just fine xo

it was old school ...no mat, no rotary cutter, no iron....but it sure was nice to do some vacation balcony sewing....i managed to get the last 4 sets of stars pieced just finger pressing....my mexico blocks are a bit wonky but i am ok with that xo

finishing up this star quilt and making a sweet baby girl quilt are next up....and i have two more weeks off to focus on that goodness xo
happy saturday ~ pam
