Just as my sister shared a couple of weeks ago, I also love the colors, textures, sights and even smells of fall.
And this fall I was introduced to some new colors, textures, sights and smells of fall as I traveled to El Salvador with KidZ at Heart International.
The team I was with trained teachers and teacher trainers,
visited the fishing pier,
enjoyed new friends and their delicious beverages,
met with university officials to discuss future partnerships,
indulged in delicious, unique food,
found beautiful artistry at the national market,
laughed at the local humor,
and were inspired by the creativity we found in unusual places.
Because I traveled home through South Florida, I had time with some of my grandchildren when we celebrated an El Salvador day – complete with wooden toys,
making horchata (the national drink) and papusas.
And then I had some special stitching time with someone who needed a pillow for her dolls. What could be better for that project that some brightly colored wool?
Whether you are in the country or out of the country, we hope that you celebrate Fall in memorable, stitch-able ways.
