El Tuito

Our trip to Puerto Vallarta is coming to an end. We met a ceramic artist (Patricia Gawle) here in town who has a gallery in PV and she offers trips to a little town inland called El Tuito. On the way we went to the Botanical Garden and that was beautiful. In El Tuito we met another potter his name is Luis with whom she is working together.

He showed us his some of his work and his kiln.

We took the bus back and I have to say it was a beautiful and interesting day.

We are in Mexico for 10 days, relaxing and enjoying the sun.

Yesterday we took the bus to Sayulita. We love taking the bus and it always feels like an adventure! We are staying in Puerto Vallarta at our friends apartment. This is the view from our balcony! I wish you all a very relaxing and wonderful day, Sabine

Sewing in Pink

As I mentioned before, I am hooked on sewing. I took some classes recently and it is so hard every time to wait for my next class again. I started looking at different sewing machines and my heart was set on the Bernina aurora 440 QE which is totally out of my budget. Remember I can't really sew right now since I am a total beginner. My husband suggested to buy an old/ vintage machine that would get me all set up for now and I can start to practice. We found this beautiful machine on craigslist.
It is a 1950 Atlas machine and works great. And someday I will get my dream machine the Bernina...

Crazy about sewing

I have discovered the sewing machine. I took a beginners workshop last week and now I am hooked. It is so much fun! I am thinking about buying myself a sewing/embroidery sewing machine sometime in the future and start combining clay and fabric.
For now I can always go to SEW NOW our local sewing studio and use the machines they have.
I also learned about all the different embroidery features the sewing machines offer. Wow!
