I can't say for sure how long it's been since I started embroidering, but one thing is for certain... Mexican embroidered blouses were why I decided to take up stitching in the first place.
This red on red embroidery is my favorite.
I took these photos at Picante, a lovely shop owned by my friend, Hazel. She has such an amazing collection of embroidered blouses, dresses, and Mexican silver earrings. I have a very small collection of Mexican silver that I acquired while working there while in Grad school, but there are always more pieces I lust after when I stop in for a visit. Her store is colorful and vibrant. Every time I'm there, I want to transform my house to reflect the colors in the shop. I definitely need more wall space for that.
Hope you enjoy these colors and stitches!
Until next time.
