Tuesday is Cinco de Mayo~or the 5th Of May. It commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory in 1862 over France at the Battle of Pueblo during the Franco~Mexican War. A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, but in the US it has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage… especially in the areas with large Mexican American populations, such as here in San Diego.
So today I will crave Mexican food…The food! don’t forget the food! Now for me, I love, love, love…did I say LOVE? Mexican food and I could probably eat it almost every day. That came from working so many years in the restaurant business with all of these wonderful cooks when there was always “something” special cooking on the back stove. The use of chilis and the cilantro and all of the flavors that I have grown to know and love. Of course you need a margarita to go with it all!
Or you could stitch a margarita! This canvas is by Amanda Lawford and the first one is a canvas by Maggie…
It was quite a busy weekend with Derby Day, the fight of the century, baseball watching and stitching. I am now in market countdown as I ready the stitch guides and threads for my classes at TNNA. I always need to thank the generousity of our vendors that donate threads that make these classes possible…and there will be some work on my part as if the canvas just needs a few white beads or 18″ of a thread, I prepare it that way. I never want to take it for granted… so a shoutout to Rainbow Gallery, Kreinik, Sundance, Planet Earth, Gloriana, DMC, the collection and to my BFF for proof reading my stitch guides!
a favorite napping spot. That box has been there for years and of course would never have the heart to get rid of THAT box!
and until next time…keep on stitching
