Finding Passion: Ode to Embroidery

Have you always wanted to learn how to do something ... and finally when you do, it's like fireworks going off? It's like somehow, you're home.

I've always wanted to learn how to embroider. And today, when I learned how to embroider, it was like 4th of July.

Camilla from a village up North was my teacher. I think that I might be hooked. No really, you don't understand ... I already went to the market and bought 30 different colors of thread and some hoops. I want to embroider everything in site. My shih tzu Bunny. My breakfast [eggs]. An ice cream cone. Leaves. Flowers. I'm looking forward to our long ride to Lake Atitlan on Thursday so I can zone out and embroider and drool in delight.


And also learned how to make pom-poms. I mean, who doesn't like a good pom-pom every once in awhile?


  1. what is this fabulous dress you are wearing!!
    I am so jealous of all the things you are learning and making, i cant wait to see you.
