Did you know I'm going to Mexico? Oaxaca City and environs to be exact. You can read all about it here.
It does a girl a world of good to get out and see the world a bit, to shake it up and maybe see and think about things that never occurred to you. I'm going to make art and seek out some old churches and walk a lot and (big surprise here) do a little shopping.
I'm hoping to find a lot of these fun hand embroidered aprons. Here's Becky wearing one I brought back for her last year!!! Someone called it a pinafore, which I think is exactly right, If the shopping gods are smiling upon us, I hope to also have some vintage huipiles (clothing shirts) and cushion covers, and some contemporary table runners. Plus that certain something out there waiting for me that I don't even know about yet. But I hear it calling to me. Stay tuned. We'll be having a big textile showing on First Friday in April and I'll be showing off my bounty from the Mexico trip.
