Gorgeous colourful designs from Guatemala for Teena Hughes

Gorgeous colourful designs from Guatemala – plus a gift for me – and one for you!

My friend Carolyn just returned home to Australia after an amazing trip to the Houston Quilt Festival in the USA, and a week-long Adventure in Guatemala with other textile lovers.

We met up for brunch at one of my favourite local cafes at the end of a wharf at my local beach. I love the location, surrounded by water – in fact hovering over the water, with a view on 3 sides of yachts bobbing, and listening to the bell-like sounds of the rigging in the soft breezes.

I couldn’t wait to hear all the stories about the almost-four week trip, and sat with eyes as big as saucers as I heard all the details and looked at the hundreds of photos — oh my, what a feast for the eyes! I wished it was scratch-n-sniff so I could smell the food, the flowers and taste all those delicious lemon and lime inspired drinks!

Now let’s look at a close-up of the amazing colours and weaving of the bag, miniature doll and woven pen cover — amazing!

Gosh these are gorgeous! The doll is approximately 1″/1.25cm high, and to see the little hands and face, the head wrap and the clothing is pure joy!

If you do, I’d love to hear about it — please do send me an email or pop over to Facebook.

For many of us, our lives are filled with so many “things” to make life easy etc, so surrounding ourselves with hand-made objects adds a richness which enhances our love of the expertise which has gone into the creation. all artisans create magic and delight! Fabulous!
